I understand that this is just a show, but some reality is required. I am yet to see a Punjabi girl (i was born and rasied in US traditionally) who has never set foot int he kitchen. We were taught basics at a very young age and were required to cook on weekends when we had no school. 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.
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..
