When Indhuja Pillai’s parents placed a matrimonial profile on a marriage site on her behalf, she was annoyed and immediately put her truth out there.
The 24-year-old’s ‘marriage CV’ is now trending, with more than 230,000pageviews in just three weeks and counting. What more, even foreigners have responded, reports indianexpress.com
The self-confessed tomboy from Bangalore, wrote that she prefers “a man, preferably bearded, who is passionate about seeing the world. Extra points to the one who hates kids. Points for a great voice and an impressive personality. Should be able to hold a conversation for at least 30 minutes.”
“I wear glasses and look dorky in them. Not a spendthrift or a shopaholic. Detest masala & drama, not a TV fan. I don’t read…‘NOT a womanly woman. Definitely not marriage material. Won’t grow long hair, ever.”
And, she asked her parents to send her version of the CV to “anyone who has the nerve to ask my hand in marriage!”
The young woman has been inundated with proposals, and has been receiving comments in support from girls who echo her feelings.
The advert paced by her parents did not “even remotely describe the real her”, she claimed.
Indhuja, who just started work in a technology start-up, is not yet ready for marriage and wants to travel and see the world first.
