This is an insult to us as a culture.  Speaking of insults, the girls parents giving the idea of a honeymoon is shameful itself not to mention no self respecting family of any Indian culture would send someone to spy on their daughter or do things for her and fool her in-laws.  This is way to off the beaten path. 


Thank you.....we are not expecting her to be a great cook but she should know something........and its not only Mona I am talking about but every time they show this kind of track in any serial. I just hate it. Its a pitty. Everyone i mean everyone should know the basics of cooking. If I was her saas, I would have thrown a fit by now. I would be willing to teach her better cooking but she should know the basics, at least what basic masals or how to make roti, rice whatever her ethnic food maybe...........but do be so bad has to know even know basic veggy is beyond me...............

I believe in Punjabi households, the boys are taught how to cook  but not the girls.

I've dated quite a few Punjabi guys, and they always knew how to cook.  My ex-boyfriend who is Sikh would whip up paratas, matter paneer in 10 minutes flat.

You clever girlLOL I agree with Priya and others our families have always been studies first rest comes after that, you know till I was going to college only thing I knew was how to make tea because seriously if you take a 16-17 credit load you don't have a time for anything else other than studies. But coming back to Mona she didn't do anything, she was going to college for sake of it not to make a career so I don't see a point why she wouldn't know this stuff...

Not all Punjabi girls can cook. It depends on family. Most girls learn cooking after they get married. Mona's in-laws should teach her cooking. Most parents like to help their children, I see nothing wrong with it. In the families and culture I come from..If I lived next to my parents house,..coming and going of my family and myself to my parents homes  will not be a big deal. I don't come from very traditional background.

I see lot of time being wasted to control and make people unhappy in the name of useless traditions..my tradition is honesty, trust and respect for all..
