The Hindu has a hoarding up for its matrimonial pages today, claiming, “What Parents do for their children, Behind their backs.” Hullo! I know the Hindu is an ancient newspaper with a hoary past and all that, but do they necessarily need to reveal such an ancient mindset? When matrimonial sites are proliferating, and even social networking could rapidly be a conduit to dating and perhaps marriage, why are parents sneaking behind backs trying to set up marriages? And then the paper also had to put in a killer tagline, “Making matchmaking enjoyable”. My mind boggles!
