How Sajal Ali aptly underscores the ironic standards of search for a bride in our culture.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re high achiever in school, or a best athlete of your department. It doesn’t matter whether you’re financially independent or some introvert who is quite contented at home. What matters most is your physical appearance.
Whether you are moderate, liberal or conservative, people label you from their perspective. It’s all a gamble. These varied requirements for bride, in most cases, make a girl more susceptible to depression and she becomes increasingly reclusive or sometimes completely rebellious.
However, we cannot ignore the problems faced by parents while searching for the suitable girl for their boys. They do face difficulties and sometimes the bond of marriage broke within a month. Marriage is a two way street. But the pressure of getting married at the right time is somewhat high for girls.
May all daughters achieve their dreams! May their new relations can better understand their mental capacities. They should not be judged time and again, but need to be understood.
