Singur Matrimonials!

Just caught this very interesting matrimonial advertisement on a news site. 

Singur Girl

Marry Well Settled Singur Girl Register Free! Search, Chat & Marry

Haha. What next? Marry Well Settled SEZ-Proposed-in-2020-but-farmers-agitating-already Girl? [Sorry if that sounds sexist!]

Suddenly places of discontent and protests are becoming attractive destinations for “Alliance-Seekers”. Now what could be the reason for that? I racked my brains for what could be the top five reasons!

  • The to-be-bride was featured in numerous news videos, effectively making her a small screen star
  • The Alliance-Seeker has ambitions in Politics
  • The Alliance-Seeker is a die hard fan of Mamata ‘Bandh’-opadhyay, Arundhati Roy and the likes
  • Marketing managers at the matrimonial site have taken market segmentation a little too seriously
  • The Alliance-Seeker would either get a hefty compensation or an assured job

Déjà vu Déjà vu

My last post on the subject of terror attacks and how the 'stakeholders' have addressed it is still fresh in my mind. I cannot bring myself to do a rerun of the same thing. In fact you will find the post a few scrolls down.

I am sincerely eager to see if the GoI does something this time around, or will they slide into the ‘election-stupor’ mode. Not that they have been in much of an active mode the last few years. What amazes me is the fact that the perpetrators can do it with such ease. They are not only striking at will, but the way they are able to cover their tracks is brilliant.
