No red roses for Saudi sweethearts

Not quite a surprise…!!! 😀 I don’t know what’s the kick in walking the opposite direction always. It’s nice to walk your own way every now and then and you will be respected for that. But, differentiating for the sake of it sometimes gets too annoying…!! So much for freedom and personal choice!!!!!!

RIYADH (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s religious police have banned red roses ahead of Valentine’s Day, forcing couples in the conservative Muslim nation to think of new ways to show their love.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has ordered florists and gift shop owners in the capital Riyadh to remove any items colored scarlet, which is widely seen as symbolizing love, newspapers said.

“They visited us last night,” the Saudi Gazette quoted an unidentified florist as saying.

It is not unusual for the Saudi vice squad to clamp down ahead of Valentine’s Day, which it sees as encouraging relations between men and women outside of wedlock, the newspaper said.

Saudi Arabia imposes an austere form of Sunni Islam which prevents unrelated men and women from mixing, bans women from driving and demands that women wear a headscarf and a cloak.

Relations outside marriage are strictly banned and punishable by law.

Converting love marriage to arranged one!

I got this by mail. Really amusing. Especially if you are from an Indian context you would be able to relate to most of what’s written here. It’s a bit long post, but well worth the time!!! 😉

Grandmother was pretending to be lost in prayer, but her prayer-beads were spinning at top speed.That meant she was either excited or upset. Mother put the receiver down. “Some American girl in his office, she’s coming to stay with us for a week.” She sounded as if she had a deep foreboding.

Father had no such doubt. He knew the worst was to come. He had been matching horoscopes for a year, but my brother Vivek had found a million excuses for not being able to visit India , call any of the chosen Iyer girls, or in any other way advance father’s cause. Father always wore four parallel lines of sacred ash on his forehead. Now there were eight, so deep were the furrows of worry on his forehead. I sat in a corner, supposedly lost in a book, but furiously text-messaging my brother with a vivid description of the scene before me.

"Brahmin guys are not love/marriage material", Says Brahmin girl

*UPDATE: I get a lot of requests (sometimes in the form demands and threats) to close down this Blog. Let me make it very clear to all my readers. Please understand that I am responsible only for the original post above these lines. I am NOT responsible for any blasphemy typed out in the comments by half-brained retards who are turning this into a religious / caste debate. My original response to the girl had very little to do with the religion. My response in the form of this blog post was to a ‘specific’ person who had posted a ‘specific’ comment on a different blog (quoted above).

If you don’t have the brains to understand the English that I have written, you shouldn’t be reading this post in the first place. No religion needs you or any of your likes to defend itself. So, instead of self proclaiming yourself as the sole savior of a religion, Go out and get a life.

Sorry for being harsh here. I am just sick and tired of idiotic morons spamming me with silly threats.*

Recently Dilip had posted a very interesting post @ Chennai Metblogs on the subject of castes and religion. It evoked a wide variety of responses from readers. One particular was interesting Whew….. Am posting it here with my comments inline Whistling

i am a brahmin girl. you brahmin guys might not realise it, but brahmin guys are not love/marriage material. i dont blame just you guys – the current social setup is also a reason.

most of my friends (brahmin girls) DONT want to marry a brahmin boy. even i am like that. the reasons? read below:

Here starts the fun part!!!

1) in the current, very competitive setup, brahmin guys – from childhood – have been programmed to take advantage of ANYTHING and everything that comes their way – to the point they will not be even be good friends. this might earn you a good job and a arranged marriage bride in later years. but dont expect a girl to like you after they know about you (and brahmin girls are no exception).

I really thought that was supposed to be good thing. Dear friend, This is a dog eat dog world. If you are not an opportunist, you will be a loser. Whether such people will have friends is a different equation. That would really depend on how friendly they are, how much they care about others. One can be an opportunist and still be ethical.

2) by the time a brahmin guys is settled in his life he is almost 30 or after 30. almost all have bald heads when they get married. most young brahmin girls find other attractive guys by this time.

That was a trend 10 years ago. And that was because any person in those days would take that many years to settle down in life. This may not sound right to you at your age. But, being settled in life is very important for a guy to lead a happy life with a girl. Otherwise, their beginning years of marriage would be spent in worries and trying to tackle everyday’s problems instead of being together and affectionate. Today, almost all brahmin guys I know get married pretty early. Today, almost any guy out with a decent college background is able to earn a decent salary. He can apply for loans and all that. Financially, today a guy can plan his marriage much before than guys 10 years ago. So, this is only a question of changing times. Not related to Brahmins!!!

3) the western influence (thank god!) is making parents realise that love is important for their girl children also. so many parents today are open to a good educated son-in-law from other castes.

You are basically wrong and prejudiced that all brahmin guys don’t know the first thing about love Thinking. You may have come across a few in your life time. But, do not generalize based on those few select cases. One question – If your dad a brahmin? If he is… does your theory apply to him as well?

4) in my college, and in my class, you can see that the brahmin guys are the puniest, cunning fellows – i am sorry to say this. but thats the reality. you can say whatever – but a girl wants a man who can protect her financially and PHYSICALLY. physical charms like well built body, broad chest and strong shoulders give us that impression. while i can point out many good looking, normal guys who are funny, willing to share from other castes, i dont see ONE brahmin boy in my college like that. there is only one love story that involves a brahmin guy – he is super rich, btw.

This again is just baseless. Shame on you lets try think of good looking, tall handsome brahmin celebrities – Madhavan, Kamal hassan, Arvind Swamy, Jayaram, Rajiv Gandhi… I believe of them were brahmins and good looking too. That apart. Some day, I hope that you do wake up to reality. Looks are temporary. No matter how good looking you are and or how good looking a guy is. At old age, when you have only the guy left for you.. It wont really matter if he is bald. What will matter then is not how he looked during college days. But, how caring and affectionate he is on those lonely years with you. And believe me. Real life is not like movies where you need muscle men to protect you everyday. You should be looking for a soulmate not a bodyguard or a joker. You need a person who will provide you with love and other basic necessities. You need a person who would serve your physical, emotional and materialistic needs not a person with a six pack abs without enough earnings to provide you with what you need. You need a person who can protect you by providing you with a decent place to live in, by providing you healthy foods, by loving you.

5) many brahmin guys are hypocrites. while most cringe at the thought of eating meat, they relish alcohol – and some even blog about wines! while y some act non-meat eating at homes, they eat meat with their friends. most talk about the glory of their caste, but fail to read even the basic texts that would give them some understanding about what they are talking!
most other caste boys (not FCs), dont have these faults (they do other common faults – common to all men – but brahmins have the above in addition to what can be considered normal deviations).

I have often come across this statement. I am a brahmin. I eat eggs. I drink wine at parties. I am NOT a alcoholic or a hard core non-veggie. I don’t call myself a vegetarian. All these are just a matter of pure choice. Being brought up the way I was, I grew up hating meat. I can’t stand the smell of fish. Nobody is forcing me not to eat non-veg stuff. It’s my choice and my preference. You are talking about college guys who are forced to stick to the rules of the house. Check out independent brahmin adults. They wouldn’t even pretend that they don’t drink or take meat if they do it.

i come from a family where my decisions will be respected. and i am sure that i will NOT marry a brahmin boy – my parents know this and they respect my desicion. any brahmin girls reading this message and shaking their head, try spending some time with boys from other castes – not FCs – but from bc/mbc/sc/sts . you will find them so much better than the cynical, cunning brahmin boys.

I guess your problem is that you are still in college and still in the fairy tale world of a knight coming galloping on his horse to sweep you of your feet and ride away to a castle far far away. It’s nice. It’s romantic. It’s time to wake up!!! Winking

i wrote my mind (and this is the frame of mind of many of my relatives and my friends in college). i really feel sorry for brahmin guys who are being trained this way from beginning. but i think they should change atleast after they graduate from college.
