Raw Poison Treaty - Ratified

Rats ate all the foodgrains ? No problem, you can eat the rats
No wonder our premier spy agencies are now trying to utilize all the remaining rat poison.

Marriage is out of the backburner !

Nowadays, father is seriously thinking abt fixing me up with some girl, so now I am supposed to recite a ganapati stotra (sanskrit shloka) every tuesday & wear a pearl ring , that would make my prospects bright for a 'good girl' . You see, for him I am his son, not some rationalist fool [who also thinks marriage is decided by how tasty the kande pohe turn out to be]. Poor father, from the beginning to the end i.e. from soo soo to shaadi (shaadi as end, how apt ;), everything has to be initiated by him. He decided to act because I didn't (or couldn't ?) - [that chapter is a black comedy in itself]. Although I can blame my incompetence in that area called lurve to the skewed sex gender ratio in Matrubhoomi : a nation -soon-to-be- without women. Anyway, soon my profile got created on,, vagaira vagaira courtesy the sisterhood (my plans to marry after the sisterhood does were thus, cut short, sisterhood always wins, shhhh raksha bandhan is near). Then it was quiet for sometime. Sometime later i decided to update the profiles myself with details like 'traveled a broad abroad' & such. Then, sisterhood said they were getting flooded with messages, so i decided to check some out. Now normally, I outright reject profiles created by the poojaniya mata-pita but this one seems irresistible :

Well born (how on earth ???) well bread (thanks but i prefer toasted). Soft spoking, caring with charming personality. A fine blender of east & west (the grinder comes free). Blives(& Cdies) in Indian values, respects elders (I really wish he had typo'd this as welders). Looking for someone with whom she can share the journey of life, with love and respect for each other. Visited us on vacation (uh oh.. he means US). Presently working with an MNC company at Pune (wow ! MNC). Belong to a highly cultured (yoghurt ?), descent family from Nagpur,with fine living standard. Father retired as a Sr.Executive. origianlly from north India setteled in Pune for many generations. (father is settled since many generations !) Mother, house maker(he means home maker obviously, not a builder/contractor) from reputed brahmin family (but.. ours is a disreputed brahmin family :( ). Speak Hindi at home, fluent in English, & Marathi. Elder sister M.C.A. M.S now in CA(US) Her husband from well respected deshastha brahmin family now with IBM US.Second sister graduate in computer engg. Married to a Lt.Col. in the Indian army, he is from Banglore.Lots of cousins are abroad in the extended family (& what about the second cousins aunt, she lives in honolulu no ?). A very warm, close knit (sweaters ?), progressive family.with good Sanskar.Looking for a caring and compatible gentleman & family.(this is actually why, with a heavy heart, I decided to turn them down)

hmmmph , now if only getting the right girl required knowing the correct google keywords
