Inferences!

  1. I’m glad that they omitted other religions and conveniently forgot about the India is secular idea. Imagine the horror ..
  2. So Hindu men usually marry orphaned women, I suppose. Pious men indeed! 
  3. According to law, then daughters do not have any obligation, pious or otherwise, towards their parents. Reduces confusion, big time!
  4. And I always thought India was a secular country and marriage was between two people and two families. How wrong I was!
