MNBC, the national news agency reports that the US Government is finally resorting to indirect and direct promulgation of Arranged Marriage among its citizens. Our special correspondent reported this while the Department of Homeland Security vehemently denied this, although its head, Secretary McLloyd, is already known to make arrangements to get his daughter married to a suitable boy from Austin Texas having a ‘compatible’ family background and, more importantly, having a ‘matching horoscope’ to his daughter.
Fellow Texans are upbeat when asked about this new concept. Says Mr. Braun, a utilities store owner in Dallas: “Them Indian parents have’d a long history of being nosy about others lives, most definitely their own children. It is time we start practicing this privilege right here in the US of A, yessir, wooohooo!” Miss Sheen of the ‘Hog and Dog’ brewery doesn’t have a much different point of view: “So up until this time Indians thought they called the shots on emotional manipulation, mind games and general loathe and abuse upon their near and dears. Let me tell you, we’ll show ’em how its done right.”
In the meantime, the Indian Ambassador to the US has lodged a formal complaint citing ‘reverse cultural invasion’ though he refrained from elaborating. An aide in his office seemed to echo the sentiment of all Indians abroad “First they took away Yoga from our great country…now it is Arranged Marriage…tomorrow it will be our Culture, family system, even Infrastructure!!…you tell me?..it is not the way”.
