No.. Seriously.. What is the point?
I see none.. None of significance, so to say.

The average educated, financially independent mother still believes that daughters aged beyond 24 are like hot coal on the ungloved palm and are best handed off – to a strange male hand. She believes that the daughter should dress and behave with friends only in ways such that relatives and society have nothing to gossip about her. The daughter’s wishes, individuality and happiness are important, but doomed to the back burner.
The average educated girl of 25 today, is much worse.
One wants not to tire her brain. All decisions would be made for her by her doting parents – after all they know better. They would do the hard work – perusing dozens of potential bride groom resumes, grading them wrt social status, financial status, educational qualification, religion, caste, sub-caste, horoscope, whether they refuse dowry, but expect the bride to receive gifts as her parents please, the budget of this expected gift etc, and furnishing her the condensed list to choose from. She would then apply her criteria of cuteness and manliness levels, eliminating owners of noses she does not like, and choose a potential groom. Repeat process as many times as it takes for the potential groom to turn actual groom and move over to part 2 in life. From now on, all decisions would be made for her by her loving husband – after all, he is better educated, holds a better job, and obviously knows better! Life now becomes full of “i cant, he would not allow me”, “i cant, he does not like that”, “i have no option, he likes me to be only this way”.
If education does not teach a woman to think, take a stand, have a opinion and live life for herself, what good is it?
