Roll up! Roll up! It’s time for the Grand National Young Achievers Matrimony Meet

Been deserting my blogging post of late.

MIA.

Guilty as charged.

Basically, every day I fully intend to settle down and blog and cyber-chat with you all about what’s happening here in India, and then I read my morning papers and 99/100 times, I feel so sickened/fed up/hopeless that I decide not to inflict my misery on you all.

But there’s not much point calling myself a blogger if I don’t blog, right?

So I’ll ease us all back into what’s going on in the world’s biggest democracy with the kind of news that is so ridiculous that it makes you laugh out loud.  This ad, below, was on the front page of this morning’s “The Hindu”.

Seriously 😛

Just read it and marvel at the crass bonkersness of it.  Or even the bonkers crassness of it.

There is so much going on in this ad, that I hardly know where to begin.

Let’s start with the qualifications for “Young Achievers,” shall we?

“Successful entrepreneurs…eminent professionals…graduated…highly recognised young achievers.  Beautiful girls.”

Oh, so that’s alright then.

She can be as thick as a brick just so long as she’s pretty.  Pity about all the female “successful entrepreneurs…eminent professionals…graduated…highly recognised young achievers” planning on going to the Grand National Young Achievers Matrimony Meet.

Pipped at the post by the beautiful girls.

Then we move onto the classifications of the families of these “successful entrepreneurs…eminent professionals…graduated…highly recognised young achievers.  And Beautiful girls”.

High Net Worth?  Or Ultra Rich?  Celebrities? Or VVIP?

Good Lord, such a cornucopia of entitlement.

BUT –  are these the requirements for the families of the Beautiful girls, too?

I mean, suppose a girl is Beautiful, but not from an Ultra Rich Family. Then what?

I mean, aren’t her looks supposed to be the deciding factor, not her family’s High Net Worth-ness?

As if all this isn’t complicated enough when you are trying to get hitched, you also have to decide how much you are prepared to shell out for a veggie lunch.

Do you pay Rs10,000 as a Young Achiever?

Or do you take along Mum and Dad as well, and then get 3 veggie lunches for the bargain price of Rs25,000?

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

This was posted on social media by some of my young friends, notably the lovely Neha Chandok who says that she’s not going to shell out all that money for a veggie lunch.

So take that Grand National Young Achievers Matrimony Meet !
