Improve your marriage prospects? Get an MBA!
'At a meeting with a director of a business school, I told him there are over 3,000 business schools producing some four to six lakh MBA graduates a year. Industry cannot absorb so many MBAs, even if the economy grows at 9 per cent a year. If this is the case, why spend lakhs to send your son or daughter to a business school, I wondered. He explained I had missed the point. Getting your son or daughter through business school improves their rate in the marriage market. The boy can command a better dowry; and the girl can get a simple job, maybe find a boy and bring down the dowry rate.' decodes The Big Fat Indian Wedding.
