I dont think the family would have mind if she brought a male friend home for dinner before the hand holding incident.

One reason why they are so conservative is also the fact that Akshara is very immature and cannot pick out the difference between right or wrong.
 
If she was much more matured, the family wouldnt mind.

The show is set in Udaipur which is a small town and very conservative, since it primarily has Marwari and Rajput families who are still quite traditional and orthodox in their lifestyle.
 
Hence, I feel that the double standards shown in the serial are actually quite realistic and many families, not just in small towns of India but also in Metropolitan cities observe this sort of difference between girls and boys in the same family.
 
This is not really sexual discrimination, but just the fact that in our society, a girl's honor is considered to be a family's honor too and anything that might sully it should be avoided. Hence, parent's and elder siblings are so protective about the girls in the family. Girls are just as pampered and loved as boys, but at the same time protected and restricted too. This is Indian society, love it or hate it....but that's the way it is!
 
The Maheshwari's seem to be ultra-conservative and would probably never accept Akshara's friendship with any guy, or that's what it seems like. So even if it was someone else apart from Alok, I don't think anyone would have encouraged Akshara to be friends with a boy. Just imagine, if Shaurya being a guy has to hide his relationship, how could the family be expected to accept their daughter's friendship with anyone, howmuch ever platonic that might be!

i can understand parents have fear that their children wont do somethign wrong...but they atelast they shoud trust their chilren or they dont boys and gals frindshp maybe coz their parents treated them like this .. so our parents are doing the same thing with us that their parents did it
