Varieties: chose your bride

With some of my blogpals now contemplating arranged marriage, it may be helpful if I show the way around a path I have been attempting to traverse for some time now. Finding a right match for yourself is never easy, saying No is even tougher and being confident about your choice is the toughest. Scouting around though is not hard in this internet age, you can always use this very machine you are reading this from; logging on to matri-sites does give a lot of interesting and hitherto unknown options some of which can leave one baffled and puzzled. However it should be kept in mind that writing about one self to attract right life partner is tricky and many present their garden with different shades of roses and thorns

Juhi Chawla types
“I am a simple loving caring and giving girl and these are the qualities I look forward in my life partner also. He should be honest sincere and understanding, in short someone who can keep me happy and treats my parents the way he treats his.”
Don’t know why but this reminds me of Juhi and her innocent charm

Khadoos baap types
“Our daughter is right blend of tradition and modernity. She is homely, respectful and hardworking; does not have any show-offs and is emotionally content. Convent educated with a B Sc in Nutrition and diploma in hygiene, now working in a big company. Boy should be decent without any bad habits”
If above was Juhi then his must be her father from Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar kein…

Fun types
“Can dance at night, recite Shantaram from page 1 and enjoy going out. I am a very fun loving person who can give anyone good company. My hobbies include dancing, painting, singing…….My family and friends mean the world and I can’t live without them nor can they be happy without me. I am looking for someone who can be a part of me and expect all he wants in return.”
You seen Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na….Genelia D’Souza anyone?

Air India types
Namaste! I am Khushbu presently working as a customer care executive in a reputed firm in Noida. I have completed MCA from Noida and currently pursuing MBA from Pune. My friends describe me as fun and confident”
Reading this reminds me of Air India welcome Namashkar Air India ke vimman main aap ka swagat hain. Kuchh hi der main hamara vimaan Dilli ke liye rawana hoga, aasha hain ki aapki yatra mangal may ho. Dhanywaad”

Practical types
Looking for someone who can understand me and be a support in all my ups and downs. If you feel you can support and respect a person and not feel jealous of anyone’s success then contact me. Those who want just a doormat as wife stay away”
Reading this you can imagine her in bespectacled frame and no-nonsense look

In middle of all varieties I am as confused as a kid when asked to chose between kebabs, dosa or omelets – they are all so different and can’t be sure if it will be as per your taste or liking.

Lastly I am not sure if arranged marriages are only for convenience, may be a bit like Abhishek- Aishwarya who look so loveless and look miles apart as if strangely put together


  1. he he he! Nice compilation

  2. i left the matri site form fillin to brother. i hate this "mujhse shadi karlo" shit.

    all i need is cute looking (someone id be attracted to), funny (someone who can make me laugh) , who'd laugh at my jokes or things that are not even meant to be funny, who'd adore me as i am, who'd be possessive about me and who will be very loyal to me till my and even his last breath.

    no one would approach me if i fill that. i sound like I want everything,

  3. 1st thing id write is : looking for a man who is a man in the true sense of the word

  4. i knowee man, pesto these descriptions are soo confusing..oh best was genelia and the air india wala.

    waise my matri profile would have come under the khadoos baap description :)

  5. dipo, ladke k baade toh thoda soch..tera description padke, bhaag jaeyga :)

    bus apni photo chipka de, sab aa jaenge wapas!!!

  6. Nice compilation...I am sure you will many more varieties if you dig a little more ;)

  7. Mere toh profession ki naak kata di raani Mukherji ne No one killed jessica me.

    Jornalist sun k pehle hi G***d fat jaati hai ladko ki.
    My dad is going to register me with these sites

  8. hahahahah mera bhi Dip wala haal hai :P

    Su meri mom says the same thing....teri demands sunke bhaggega...fir tujhse shaadi hoyi to agle din bhaag jayega :P so imagine ...

    I so dont wanna go thru this ordeal some day..I hope I wdnt...

  9. Hope whoever u find gets to read these posts someday. :)

  10. hehe this is funny and sad all at the same time.

  11. My Mum moved on rather graduated from these sites to Matrimonaal ads in the Classifieds. I am still irritated and prejudiced against this entire process. Why can't we be left alone till we meet someone and things fall into place? I don't even find this funny anymore.

  12. Air India types are aunties not brides. Good fun. Enjoyed the classifications.

  13. I like the compilation .. Now awaiting to see what you choose :)

    he he heeh


  14. A very nice composition on how to propose sharing your views about life-partner.
    Work From Home India

  15. I was the Juhi chawla type I believe :P Nice description! You can't make out anything from a matri profile. Arrange a couple of meetings if you like the person and then decide :)

  16. Pesto is it possible you make the arranged marriages look bad in this post?

  17. Nice..really nice .
    Enjoyed it buddy.

    You should have gone for more classifications.

  18. Lol. That was a fun read, especially the Air India one

  19. LOL. really nice. do share with us what you choose. ;)

  20. I vote for the practical types!!
