Very Appalling / Totally Unbelievable Matrimonial Ad

Right now in our family we have half a dozen boys and girls who are eligible matrimony candidates so the activity of finding suitable candidates has become a family affair. So during our usual exchange of information, we came across this online ad. What I found was that this guy opens a new profile on a weekly basis because the matrimonial sites won't allow him to keep his ad on their sites longer than a few days. I just can not digest the fact that this guy is for real? So then I searched on google and here's what I found. Completely unbelievable! I think it's a joke and if not, well, good luck or rather tough luck!

hahaha... not at all appaling but... you should read gujarat samachar matrimonial ad for more dose of laughter :)

Bhavesh said...

ah and you are lucky you atleast get some dose of dairo.. back home here... we hardly get to see such things now... fading away faster than ever before in the days of hip hop and disco dandiya :( was really nice to get a feel of how they used to be from that kasumbal dairo post :) feeling nostalgic !!

Bhavesh, what are you saying? Not appalling? How can you say that? Did you read what this guy requires? It looks like an application to apply for visa or something similar. He requires only certain type of in-laws, not to mention anything about the girl. I just hope he isn't for real. I hope no girl is stupid enough to even communicate with this character.

Yes, dairo was good. I was hoping for more of the actual "taLapadi" bhasha but they spoke shuddh Gujarati instead, which was little disappointment but it was fun nevertheless. :)
