Why such a competition for getting little praise?As soon as a girl turns 21 years old in an Indian middle class family, all the people around her begin to worry about finding her a suitable and nice groom. Everyone in the society around her want to become her godfather or god mother, and want to do a favor on her parents by finding a suitable groom. It is a sort of competition of doing favors, whether it's uncles or aunts from paternal side or maternal side; all just want to see her being a bride and get praise among all the relatives. People falling in these categories and in this competition for example-relatives and neighbors- are like moving marriage bureaus- they can find you a match on the spot you meet them.
What a bargain for appreciation and praise? Why people have this tendency of matchmaking?
And why all those relatives and neighbors have such a competition whenever they find an unmarried girl in their surroundings?
