    That is what parents feel always. For every one their caste is supreme.
    My niece doing Ph. D. In IIS Bangalore in 1980, fell for an SC boy doing Ph. D. That boy told her that there would be so many boys in brahmin community to suit her and she may forget about this issue.
    The girl, very bold and adamant she was, wrote straightaway to the boy's father telling him that she is so and so. She is interested in marrying their son. This was not seeking approval but only an information.
    The boy's father replied" You may belong to a higher caste,brahmin Iyer community. But for us, our community and culture are more important.It will be a prestige if my daughter-in-law is from S/C community though she may be a PUC failed candidate.That will be a more respectable alliance to me than my son marrying a research scholar brahmin girl, however fair or intelligent she be.
    It is entirely a different issue that the boy lagged behind in his research. She helped him with her papers,enabled him to get Ph. D earlier, sent him to US, finished her research 18 months late, joined him in US. They got their marriage registered in US with no consent or information to anyone from either side,from the boy's parents or girl's parents. The girl's parents ( My eldest sister and brother-in-law) had no inf for nearly two years and were informed of the child's birth later.My sister, setting aside all her anger and differences went for baby care.
    Now the child has grown into a boy, 27, ready for marriage and she is in love with a Tamil brahmin girl in US.What a repeat in history!

    THANKS for re response to another part of the anecdote.
    2. The story of PHDs mind Bend toward their indomitable spirit and love unites them in USA IS STUPENDOUS denoting where there is a will there is a way. If India Persists with their caste
    to the heart USA shows the green corridor.
    3. My orthodox Brahmin friend and his family shocked when their flowery daughter married her class mate of school and continued in same engineering college as soon as they graduated here in Chennai. While The boy side Roman Catholic never objected to this wedlock, my friend’s family excommunicated them.
    Two years later in London they finished their MBA and begotten a boy.
    4. My friend with his spouse were present in the church during the boy ‘s baptism in London with their Sambandhis.
    5. At one stage, the parents of daughter threatened that they would commit suicide!
    6. After a othertwo years, it was nice to see the London couple with their boy and infant baby in my friend’s Sashti apt had poorthi.
    God’s ways are strange besides making or FIXING Wedlock’s in heaven!
    Regards.
    God Bless us All Always.

    * Though it took 2 years finally there was a way for separation.
    * In love with CSK ..Who wouldn't fall in love with such an amazing personality.
    * So there arrived a bundle of joy.O think her smiles and giggles would have made you to forget the past to some extent!
    *When parents already knew daughter was not happy at in laws place why were they not happy with the divorce. Anyways Anna knew everything so supported her so much.Such a loving brother!
    *Oh my goodness.Retired Army Major and he is at 50's .So what would be Supraja's age then ?
    Can't believe!!!
    Is it really required to marry an older person just for Caste??No for sure!!!


    Waiting for the next part ☺️

    @Thyagarajan Sir,

    Good going. Divorce can be less traumatic if the family and friends support. Supraja was moderately lucky here. Falling in love with CSK was the best twist to the story.
