‘Sumukhanaya Orthodox Varan’ (Handsome Orthodox Bridegroom). This was the caption of a Matrimonial Advertisement in today’s Malayala Manorama. And since we were looking for a guy for my cousin, we thought of calling up the number. When we called the given number, it belongs to a Marriage Bureau. They first wanted a detailed bio-data / profile from us before giving any information about the 53 year old guy mentioned in the advt.
The classified was misleading as it gave an impression about a personal ad and not of a bureau. Looks like an easy way to fool people and collect bio-data / profiles of Ladies (Spinsters / Widows / Divorcees).
This is least expected from Manorama Classifieds which has some credibility compared to other dailies. Either Manorama Classifieds should cross check the telephone number before putting the ad or better will be to mention in the ad that it’s a bureau.
Will save lot of time, effort and also curses. Makes me actually wonder if this ‘Sumukhanaya Orthodox Varan’ really exists?
