Ours is a family of four. Son is a product of a top B-School and is now working for a reputed engineering company in BNG. We, parents are retired bank managers. All of us are well-educated, modern and secular in outlook. We lead a simple life. Father is a social activist and a well-respected person in the city.
She is/we are looking for:
Someone who will accept her for what she is. We would like him to be an intellectual companion, preferably with diverse interests. Someone who is not looking for a coy, timid, beautiful girl. Preferably someone who does not believe in Ã‚Â‘auspiciousÃ‚Â’ positions of planets being essential for a happy married life.
On her part, even before we seriously started looking for a match, she said, Ã‚Â“Looks, height, weight or other physical attributes hardly matter so far as the person respects my feelings and gives me space. He should be someone to whom I can look up. Ã‚Â”
As parents, we would like someone who would be comfortable with us and our relations, preferably one with similar cultural background. While educational qualifications do not matter greatly, he should be well-read and knowledgeable.
