Life of Paiyyans!! A guidebook for “paiyyans” trying to “correct” their girl friends’ parents

March 25, 2013


1.Paiyyan = Boy

2.Correct = Convince

Considering the global context, men across the world take pains to impress a girl and convince her to marry them, But in India, which as always is a different playing field altogether, boys & men need to impress not just the girl but also her mother’s aunt’s father-in-law’s younger brother’s neighbour’s kid, who is 2 yrs old, and all the relatives in between.

It’s quite common for any Kutti Chuvarite to have experienced friends pouring out about their love failur due to parents not giving consent.

  • “Machi her parents are against my caste da. 😥 “
  • “Machi I’m not a Phd from Stanford da. 😥 “
  • “Machi I dont own an apartment inside the city da 😥 “
  • Machi they are expecting me to earn Rs.2500000 per year da 😥 “

While we may have come across these reasons for a girl’s parents to not give consent for a love marriage, I’ve never heard anyone saying,

  • “Machi her parents say my character is not good 😥 “

Being the curious and analytical person that I’am, I got to work on subjectively defining the qualities that would make the parents of a girl say ok to love marriage.

So here goes:

Key Variables for Parental Consent to Love Marriage

  1. Wealth – 100% Acceptance rate
  2. Caste – 66% Acceptance rate
  3. Education – 66% Acceptance rate
  4. Character – 33% Acceptance rate

Acceptable Combinations:

  1. Caste+Wealth = Consent
  2. Caste+Education = Consent
  3. Caste+Character = No consent
  4. Education+Wealth = Consent
  5. Education+Character = No consent
  6. Wealth+Character = Consent

So minimum 2 key things that youngsters should have on their side are amongst Wealth, Caste and Education. Since we have no control over caste, focus should be on Wealth & Education.

Since character is not important, acquiring wealth is not a problem 😛

Since having wealth helps in a life free of financial commitments, one is free to pursue education anywhere in the world.

Now that education can also be easily acquired, parental consent for love marriage shouldn’t be so difficult.

Incase you agree with this thesis, please print bit notice and distribute in schools and colleges in your locality to enlighten the youngsters and help them achieve their goals.

Advice for parents too. Instead of saying

“Nalla padi da, illena velai kedaikkathu!”

“Study well or else you wont get a job!”

say this –

“Nalla padi da, illena ponnu kedaikkathu!”

“Study well or else you wont get married!”

Your kid will sure prove to be the next Einstein!.
