Them(with great conviction): Meyr maa baba hi nijer meyer jeebonta barbad kore …
(Translated: The girl’s parents are responsible for spoiling her <married> life)
Me (surprised) : Really? how come?
Them: well, they tend to interfere in their daughter’s life, teach her stuff against in-laws and disrupt peace in the family.
Me (with concealed anger) : And how can you say that?
Them: It happens everywhere these days
Me (confused) : as in?
Them : You can see it all over the television.
Me (ohhh now I get it): Hey come on, that is all fiction
Them: All these serials are based on reality – these writers take inspiration from real people around them
Me: Oh is it? Then how come I haven’t seen anyone sleeping in their heavy saris and jewllery, not even a single case of mistaken identity and plastic surgery..and also no murders in the family..
