On the market

So people, I’m on the market now. The Marriage Market.


Acha made me register on some matrimonial website, with the most decent-looking pic I could find, and one long description about me and about the kind of partner I’m looking for.

I did it just to get Acha off my back, because I'm in no way ready to get married right now. I created the profile and then left it to him to handle it.

Wrong call.

Because what do I see now when I open the account? My dad has sent ‘interest’ to countless moustached Mallu uncles with pot-bellies who are ‘simple guy loves family looking 4 true luv’.

:/

If there are any Mallu guys reading this, then I’m sorry. I really am. But you gotta admit, mallu men are not the best-looking guys on earth. You’ll find one in a hundred. Alright, I admit, I’m not a Vidya Balan myself. I’m short, dusky, wear spectacles, have a large nose that would give even Ganesha ji competition, and as of now, my ‘physical structure’ is ‘average’ rather than ‘slim’. But that doesn’t mean I should get married to a guy who looks older than my dad no?! And yes yes, looks are not the most important thing, it’s the person that matters and blah blah. But hey, I have to spend the rest of my life with the guy. I need to be able to look at his face day in and day out, right? As shallow as this may make me seem, I’m not willing to spend the rest of my life with a guy who resembles an 80’s Mallu movie villain (I’m not exaggerating. My dad actually did send interest to someone who looked like that. And went ahead and got the horoscopes checked also, after which he’s telling me that it matches perfectly and that the ‘party’ is very interested. :/ I told him that while I may not be Miss Universe material, I don’t think I can get married to a guy who looks older than my dad.) I'm not searching for an Adonis either, but at least not someone who considers a moustache to be the ultimate symbol of manhood. I don’t like guys with moustache, unless it’s accompanied by a French beard or stubble. And the worst part is that Mallu men without moustache are hard to come by!

If it’s not the looks, it’s the name. I mean, seriously! What is it with us Malayalis and the fixation for bad names!! There was a slightly interesting profile that I was checking out. Looks ok-ok, job ok-ok, etc. Then I read the name. Shine. :/ Can you even imagine what my kids’ names would be like, with that as a surname? They would sound like the brand names of liquid bleach. Or like the name of a dry-cleaning store! Another guy had a name that was just one letter different from the camera-brand Nikon. I don’t judge him. I judge his parents. Why would they do that to their own flesh and blood?! And don’t even get me started on Mallus and their fixation for the sound ‘sh’ in names. They just love it. while most names are good, some of them are so imaginative, it’s ridiculous.

In my ‘Partner preference’, I’ve given one lamba-chauda list of requirements, not at all on the lines of ‘seeking groom from good family background’. There’s actually a long list of things, starting from ‘preferably a Nambiar, so that I don’t have to change my surname’ to ‘someone who loves Calvin and Hobbes’. I think most of them got scared away just reading that. :/ Because no one seems to be falling for me. No one good, anyways. :(  The ones who do show some interest make me want to become a nun.

One dude (or whoever created his profile) replied to my dad’s message- “Dear father please give clear and polite partner preference and please remind this to your daughter and marriage is not at all a business deal”. It isn’t? Then why was he paying money to look for a partner on the internet? :/ Well, actually I'm not surprised he responded like that, because in my ‘About me’, I've written “My forte is humour and satire, so if you don’t get sarcasm, chances are you won’t like me at all”. Well, I was right about that, wasn’t I?!

Another guy who expressed in me claims to be a blogger, but also mentions that we can’t find his blog by typing his name. Seriously, dude? And his paragraphs were like loose motion- no full stop, comma, or punctuations of any sort.

Ok, so maybe proper grammar is hardly the thing you look for in a prospective life partner. There are a lot of other things that matter, like income, family background, personality, etc. But it matters to me! I tend to judge people based on their grammar and how well they can write. WHAT do I do about it?! Do you think I’ll die alone, surrounded by grammar books? :(

And a couple of them had the nerve to send me friend request on FB. Did they REALLY think I would accept their request? Seriously?! Damn you, FB!

I think my dad truly believes that the world will indeed come to an end in December 2012. I can’t see any other reason why he would be in a hurry to get me married off to one of those. I would rather die single than Mrs. Thick Moustache.

Damn. It does look like I’ll die all alone in a room surrounded by grammar books, no? :/

    been there, done that.

    You will get even more lamer 'interests'...just say a big NO even if do not like a single thing. Surely your pa would not marry you against your wish, so just enjoy the game :)

  2. Lol Spiffy! Can I see your matrimonial profile?? :P I hear you though about the looks...I don't think it's completely shallow because I think you need to be physically attracted to someone. Now that someone may not be the prototype of physical attractiveness but they are attractive to you. And I'm so with you on the moustache!!! Dying alone with books is not so bad...I think that's where I'm headed. Books and cats! :P

  3. I am sure you will get one hell of a guy who not only deserves you but will also be a grammar nazi like you :D!! Till then enjoy life..!!!
    And I too think marriage is a business deal. If not why would people spend crores and crores for the reunion of two individuals. We could as well just sign a paper in a registration office and get over with it!
    Marriage and the hungama that follows is truly something I have never been able to understand. And I don't think I will as well!

  4. Your grammar nazi-ness is totally justified...
    Your kids wont take it when you pull their ears for wrong grammar while their father is worse at it...:P
    Although a little compromise on that front is okay...you can make your guy write impositions n fix minor errors, you know...I made my boyfriend do that :P.

  8. ha ha.. I should not be laughing at someone else's plight, but it was so funny... Shine would be such a horrible surname, There was a "Bright " in my class in school who was far from bright. I really think Malayalis are the most horrible in naming children. I never had to endure the matrimonial site madness myself , but for my cousin sister who was a journalist, we did get lots of weird interested people including a police constable and a kathakali dancer..But take the matrimonial profiles with a pinch of salt as the person (the guy) might not even look like the picture himself. I have cousins who were forced to either clean shave or sport a mustache for that matrimonial picture even though they sport french beards and goatees most of the time, the profile is usually made by parents/uncles etc who have no idea what the actual guy is like. Another person's profile had job as "Typing" (he was a software engineer). Anyway best of luck until the next step starts(people coming to see you) which will be even more hilarious.

  10. Really? You wrote about your sarcasm in your matrimonial 'about me'? Get some sense, woman :P
    I agree completely about the Mallu men and the mustaches and the lame 'interests'.

    Let's not kid ourselves, little things matter when you're looking for someone to spend the rest of our lives with. And 'rest of life' is a very, VERY long time. Be picky, be choosy, there IS that one person who you won't mind you being a grammar nazi and sarcastic or even sleeping with your mouth open.

    Oh and you ought to kick that guy's ass, the one who made the 'polite partner preference'. Or let me.

    Oh no.2 and you're not as average looking as you make out to be okay? Gah.

So I don't want my partner to think I'm a nut if I suddenly say 'kilometres and kilometres from Washington DC to Miami beach' " in my partner preferance. Now what have you got to say about the grammar thing? :p

      And I didn't think it was worth my time to react to that guy. Waste.

  11. haha...all the best on your hunt:)
    First comment here,but been following for a while...

    That unsexy sounding name thing reminded me of something I saw years ago
    In that scene in 'When harry met sally' when Sally insists that she had great sex with a guy named sheldon,and Harry replies,"Sheldon? No,I'm sorry.You didnt have great sex with sheldon.A sheldon can do your taxes.If you need a root canal,he's your man.But between the sheets is not sheldons strong suit"

    2. Yeah remember that one:) A junkie dealer or something, !Xobil and you just had to yell it out:D,or maybe start with a yell and tone it down..hehe

  12. Duuuude I know how freaky all this marriage stuff is!My family went crazy searching for a groom for my aunt, and all she did was reject them one by one.

  15. Looks are not the most important thing - Of course not! But if you cant even stand the sight of the person you're married to, how the hell are you going to live with him?? It's not the MOST important thing, but it's IMPORTANT!

    Names - I remember telling my parents that I will not marry a "Random Ramasamy". Name is as important as the looks. No ancient named man. Seriously!! Don't even believe in those who claims their names as Andy. It might turn up to be Mayandy or Muniandy in real. WTF!!

    A man who doesn't speak proper English is such a turn off. Totally!! Especially if he doesn't even understand your sarcasm of criticizing him. It's even worse when they actually ask you to explain it later on. =S
    And NO, you're not alone in this! Hence, you won't die alone, surrounded by grammar books! =)

  18. Ha ha... Nice one...

    On the market!!! An apt title... It does sound like some android application up for grabs though!!!

    Between, I thought that mustaches could be shaved... But names, we do have some very strange names... I had a friend called Kripesh... He told me that his parents took the first few characters from their names and made his!!!

    Imagine if his parents were Krishnan and Mini and they made his name with "Kri" from his father and "Mi" from his mother!!! That will be one hell of a name!!!

    I remember my mother telling me that my grandfather wanted to call me "Ambujakshan"!!! That would have been one fine name!!! Well, thinking of it, I guess I would then have renamed it as "Ambu Jakson"!!!

    All the best for the wild goose chase to you and your father!!!

    1. Moustaches can be shaved, but the question is whether they want to or not, no. :/

      Dude, Ambu Jackson is no better either. :/

    2. Who said Ambu Jackson would be better!!! I was being sarcastic about it!!! That name would have been disastrous!!!

    Plus, searching for love on the web seems a bit too desperate to me, but can't stop them from making those profiles on matrimony websites either.

    1. To be honest, even I find searching for a life partner on the net desperate, not to mention a little scary. I mean, how much can we really know a person through an online profile. What if he writes "friendly and fun-loving' in his profile, but is in reality a psycho? :/ *shudder*

  25. Spiff spiff spiff!! How I understand this.

    Thanks to my parents, I was on that crappy Kerala matrimony for exactly 4 days. I received a zillion interests. 95% from mucchad uncles who were over 30 and 5% from decent enough people. One guy happened to be a model with super sexy pics. But I was 100% sure that it was not the real him. Another guy whom I met there is a really good friend now, obviously after I said a no and he married someone else. At times you meet the right people. My bestie did and she is married to him for more than 2 years now and is the happiest.

    Depends a lot on luck, trust me. Looks are important. Very very important. Comeon, nobody wants to have ugly looking children. And how would you get yourself to sleep with a guy who looks like your uncle's neighbour uncle. Crazy it is. Funnily parents don't get this part at all and we obviously can't say the above line to them, can we? :D

    All the best sweetheart and make sure you take your time and pick the right guy.

    I agree with PeeVee, you may not be Miss Universe, but the first runner up perhaps. Give yourself more credit, cos I love this aana kutti and her button nose :)

  26. Spiff! You just said all that I wanted to say. ALL.
    I don't understand why parents have to be in such a hurry to 'see us off'. Even my father has put me on a matrimonial site and whenever I walk into the room I see him surfing through profiles of various pot bellied ungles or 'IT Professionals' who want a 'simple, loving, understanding girl'. And names! Oh God, what's with all these names. My sister has already predicted that I will get married to someone named 'Bineesh'. Cool, no? :/

    And even if we do forget that, can we forgive the prospective groom's parents who have filled out their son's profile with stuff like 'looking for aspiring girl' (?!) in the partner preference? Huh! I got a bit carried away because I know just what it feels like.

    I think I am better off single! All said and done, I was laughing through each line of the post. You write so well, so don't fall for a bad-grammar guy, ok? ;)

  35. Sorry to hear you are headed to a three-way with Wren and Martin, but man, you are hilarious!

    Shine is not the worst name a guy can have; I have had the pleasure of meeting a Nicky Boy and a Makalu. Also, ask Saty what his grandpops named him. :)

    1. I'm priceless, you know. ;)

      Wren and Martin have grown old. I don't they'll be able to last a three-way with me. I'll look for some younger ones. :P

      I have heard of someone named Dubai Mon! And what did his grandpops name him?? Tell no. He won't tell if I ask.

  36. Now I feel tiny bit guilty for taking away one of the apparently rare moustache-less, accent-less, nice-named (though it has 'sh' in it!), grammar-nazi Malayali guy from the Malayali girls. :p
    Good luck with your search! Being brutally honest in the matrimony profile should be a really good 'spam' filter :) Tell your dad that he has raised you well enough that you can take care of yourself. A self-dependent girl like you doesn't need 'some guy' to 'rescue' you. Why worry so much?

    1. Only one question- Does your husband have a brother, unmarried preferably? WHo looks like him, maybe? :/

  37. Your forte seriously is satire. This was truly hilarious:D
    And the whole marriage business is way overrated. It just takes 1 damn 'available' gal/guy for everyone to get hyper :)

    1. Thank you. :)
      All this marriage talk is making me more averse to the whole idea than ever before. Seriously. :/

      And before I forget, I absolutely LOVE your name. :)

  42. Good Lord. You do hate the Mallu (correction: Malayali)stereotype dont you?..Well there are tonnes of intersting, funny, quirky and above all not-just -moustache touting Malayali Hunks out there.. (Guess that came out gay!).. But seriously someone has to vouch for us handsome keralite cherukkanmaar na?..Thats why yours truly is taking up the challenge..

  45. Oh my God! I hopped on to your blog from Red's and been laughing my head off since! Your posts are simply too good, woman. I could relate to the whole fiasco that you went through. But a tad disappointed that you are not so frequent at posting now :( Write more please, I love you!
