Hmmm. Loaded questions for the parents and relatives to consider when marrying off their precious daughter to a stranger, don’t you think?
Anyway, on a lighter vein, there are a bunch of cliches that most Indian women will have encountered during their lifetime. So here’s a list of the eight of them to bring a smile to your face:
“Beta, you should know how to make mutter paneer. Everybody knows, that a way into a man’s heart is through his stomach.” What it means is that you’re going to be married off to a chump who doesn’t even know how to turn on a stove let alone boil a glass of water!
“You should try some lemon juice mixed with neem leaves to get a fair complexion.” What it means is that your natural skin tone has to be shades lighter if you have a prayer of getting married. Really?
“You should do Pooja everyday. A ‘sanskari’ girl should know all this.” What it means is that if you make a lot of noise in the designated Pooja room at your home, only then you’re considered ‘sanskari’. Chuck spirituality; who needs it?
“What kind of dress is that?!” Code for: since you’ve reached the pain-in-the-ass marriageable age, you should toss all your normal fashionable clothes in favor of a salwar kameez, or better yet, a saree.
“Who was that on the phone? Is that who you keep talking to through the night?” What it means is that we know you might have a boyfriend and that’s our cue to get you married ASAP.
“You have such beautiful long hair.” Code for: if you even look at a pair of scissors, we’ll restrain you – physically, if we have to!
“Look at you. Seems only yesterday that you were in your cute little frilly frock. Now you’re all grown up.” Code for: we’ve already started hunting for a ‘suitable’ groom, we’ll let you know once we’ve shortlisted a couple of them for you to nod your head to.
“Why are you running around? You’re not a child anymore. Behave like a lady!” What will the neighbors and/or extended family think, if you are prancing about happily minding your own business? It reflects on us as parents when you go to your in-laws.
