50 reasons NOT to marry a Bengali man

From The Telegraph, Calcutta:

10. They expect women to serve them at the dinner table. At least she should be urging him on to the right bowls.

11. They expect the women will carry the dirty dishes to the sink, clear the table and put away the remnants in the right containers.

12. If they do put the food away, the fridge looks like a battlefield, with several things dismembered, dismantled and oozing liquids. In any case, they would never clean the refrigerator. Ditto for the cooking gas.

13. When they are drunk they invoke Robi Thakur. Then they tend to go for the cosmic, namely, Debabrata’s rendition of Akash bhora surjo tara, after which they have dinner.

14. But then when they are sober why are they still discussing Sachin Tendulkar versus Sourav Ganguly, and backing Dada to win?

15. In public, they admire Nandita Das. In secret, they want to be Salman Khan.

16. Rare is the Bengali man who looks good in a formal suit. He stops midway into it. He looks square. Or round. But proud. If you ask him why, he is likely to say that intellect is inversely proportional to height in his part of the world. He can be smug, very smug. More:

And, 50 reasons not to marry a Bengali woman

45. She tries too hard not to look Bengali. She will never have the Punjabi oomph, or the south Indian sensuality. But she will persist in trying. What’s more, she will tell you with a big smile that so and so storewallah thought she was a Punjabi today. Contradict at your own risk!

44. Like the accomplished women of Pride and Prejudice, they all sing Rabindrasangeet and Nazrulgeeti, dance, paint and recite poetry. God help you if she takes her talent seriously.

43. She will never get along with your mother. It is a matter of principle.

42. They will pet and spoil their husbands like overgrown babies and then they’ll ask you not to be a mamma’s boy. The truth is they’d rather you be a “wifey’s pet”.

41. They hate being second to your mother but are still far too controlled by their own mothers.

40. They remove gift wrappers for hours and then preserve the paper under the mattress. If she had her way, she would keep the sellotape too.

39. She won’t leave a single mirror free of stick-on bindis. More:

To which Anvar Alikhan in Outlook adds some more:

1) She will give you a silly pet name (Oltu, Poltu, etc); 2) She will buy you a monkey cap and bed socks for winter; 3) She will feed you Hilsa, which is a unique experience, like trying to eat barbed wire through a mouthful of fish mousse:4) She will throw away your precious World War II movie collection, and replace it with her own collection of Tarkovsky films…More:

  • Omg that is not true why would anyone write something so stupid and stereotypical like that it is biased and shouldn’t be up there. Not all bengali woman are freshifyed as you make out.

  • That is the most dumbest thing I ever saw they are not true at all, you are one racist being.

  • That is so not true, were the are if not the most loyal,respectful,loving and caring of all men.. you are a pathetic idiot a loser and a racist.. If people should avoid those who will make bad partners it should you horrible people like you..

    To all the women out there.. bangali men is the way foward, dont settle for second best, specially those who eat pork and drink alcohal those are the worst of men.. Their complete cowards and a disgrace to all men..

  • LOOL this is so true haha!

  • This is the dumbest thing i ever read.you should try to know little bit more about them,do your homework properly and then write.

  • I am so offended by this and I am white. .-.

  • I can’t even to begin to imagine the amount of time it took you to do this. Don’t get too excited though, I’m not about to give you kudos or anything. This is simply pathetic. You’re simply pathetic. I’m not of Bengali descent, but I truly find everything on here quite belittling and degrading. I mean, goodness, have you had SUCH a bad experience with a Bengali man? Did he not treat you like the absolute “princess” you are? You are a racist and low-minded individual that deserves the worst there is. Thanks for your time.

  • I find this extremely rude and utterly unexceptable. I am a British Bangladeshi only 15 years old and I believe that this is absolutely wrong and fucking racist. Your probably going on about a paki man and you have no rights to talk about a person like that to be precise. You can’t just blame every single bengali man like that. I know many Bengali men who work hard for their family and suffer a lot. Don’t judge a man without walking a mile in his shoes. Case dismissed.

  • Its non sense, only bengali men aren’t drunk. Peeople from all over the world drink! Its so hypothetical and eccentric

  • Ha ha ha ha ha co’on this’s just for fun… but most of the things are actually true. cant stop laughing. ROFL

  • and the funniest thing is the writer who surely is a bengali guy.. lol

  • What an idiot!!! Definitely a jealous Indian….
