India is a nation of deep-rooted cultural values such as arranged marriages, dowry and obsession with fair skin. Of course, we can't compete with the U.S. because, well, slavery.
Anyway, our match-making techniques range from the most ancient, like 'par-dadaji ka vada', to the latest, like 'Facebook'. Some Indians even go to the extent of
dating before marriage. But we won't talk about them. We understand that
marriage is a serious institution and should not be made fun of. Hence,
we'll limit ourselves to matrimonial ads.
Alright then, here we have a compilation of actual ads from the matrimonial section of Indian
newspapers, that turned out to be funny because of either dearth of
space or basic stupidity. Either way, you have fun.
