As the renowned essayist, Joseph Addison rightfully remarked,
Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to wives there is desire; to sons, ambition; but to daughters there is something which there are no words to express
Daughters are the apples, mangoes, guavas of their fathers eyes. For them, they are always the toddler who just learnt to call them “Dada”. And all the fathers will agree with what Tracy Morgan, the American comedian quoted.
Having a daughter makes you see things in a different way. This is my only girl. So I don’t care what it takes to protect her. You can call it what you want to call it. As long as you treat her the same way I treat her, like my princess, I don’t mind.
So when it’s time for their daughters to get married they always look for someone who can surpass them in taking her care. Let’s have a look at the traits they want the groom to possess
Well Educated: Good degrees from reputed colleges and universities is a must parameter for selecting a groom. And the rate at which degrees are given importance, and considering the number of engineers India produces who are worthless, the perfect groom would obviously be a thermometer, Because it can have high degrees!
Well Mannered: A decent, well-mannered guy is what father wish for their daughters. Alok Nath being the standard unit of sanskaar is a perfect choice.
I wonder why he is still bachelor..
Well Earning: Someone who earns in 7-8 digits is every father’s first choice. In fact, they would be the ones who can take good care of their wives and fulfil their demands. And no one fits the bill better than smugglers, gangsters and corrupt officers.
Well Settled: Every father wants a groom for their daughters who are well settled and have a permanent place to stay. Who else are more neatly settled than term prisoners? After all, they too need wives to continue their legacies.
Well built: A person who is strong, who can protect their daughter against all odds is every father’s desire. No one does this work better than Ambuja Cement kyunki “iss cement me jaan hai”
Well Distant :
Fathers’ like guys who are unknown to their daughters and come from unfamiliar places. They want them to be a complete surprise for them. And hence they like Pk more than Sarfaraz.
To end I would no matter how minutely they search and how perfect the groom is, but to him he is just a gorilla.
“Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla.”
