We’ll Make Boys, You Make Girls
“The PSG family produces girls, the Lakshmi Mills family produces boys, they marry each other and live happily ever after.”
How’s that for an example of intra-cast marriages in India? This one comes from a lady called Rajshree Pathy, who owns sugar mills in South India in this article published in The Economist. The article originally talks about the proposed job quotas for the backward casts in India’s private sector. But this quote is an excellent example of the deep rooted narrow-mindedness of Indians towards marriages. Unfortunately, this attitude also exists among the so-called ‘modern people’ living in cities.
