Those who are in their twenties at the moment, and get married, are most likely to eat out of hotels or get someone else to enter their kitchens and prepare the food for them.
It is not that they like what they do -- the fact of the matter is that they just do not have any choice.
For instance, most brides are MBAs or Chartered Accountants or Doctors or other professionals who get home, on an average, at around 8 PM. Yes, the men also cook these days, but they get home after 10 PM. So, physical tiredness is what makes the boy or the girl opt for food that comes from outside. In many cases, the weekends are meant to do the cleaning, and catch up with financial planning and so on.
In most cases, the parents on either side, understand these realities, much more now, then ever before.
This is exactly why they tend to take shelter in the numerous old age homes, and they are very comfortable there. At just around Rs.12,000 a single parent can manage everything, the rent included. They also get services like the electricians, plumbers and the like, on tap.
So, we will have the kitchen but the kitchen of the old days is all but gone. Those who prepare hot food and get that served in houses -- both vegetarian and non-vegetarian -- keep laughing all the way to the bank. It comes at a cost of Rs.350 or more per day, but the modern day professional is paid so high, that this expense is peanuts for him or her.
The day is not far off, when the talented cooks from the villages will go over to the urban centers and, also, earn handsome money. At present costs, a cook earns around Rs.12500 for a part time work of around three hours. So, they get to work in three houses and the income is handsome enough for them to educate their children in colleges, including engineering colleges.
So, the kitchen will undergo drastic changes, and the people who cook, for the most part, will be outsiders.
