I have never been a big fan of the big fat Indian wedding circus. In fact, I will go all out and say that I find it obnoxious and have very negative feelings about it. I know that it’s not right to generalize, but why wouldn’t you, when the majority of arranged marriages are nothing but a transaction. And a very unfair transaction at that: The girl’s family is expected to give money, and the girl is also expected to be the meek-mouse servant. So basically, she pays for serving. Of course, I do acknowledge that there are a few exceptions to the rule. But the keyword here is “few”.
I was extremely fortunate to not have to face any of this first hand, but it breaks my heart to see the kind of asinine masterpieces some of my friends have to sift through in the hope of finding one logical, rational human being.
Anyway, I could go on and on about this topic. But I just saw AIB’s hilarious, brilliant, and brutally honest videos that basically pull the pants down on Indian weddings. If you haven’t already watched this, do!
