Chandigarh, September 21

Matrimonial advertisements come with all kinds of specific demands. However, a ‘groom-wanted’ ad in particular with a clear ‘no for software engineers’ has left netizens in splits.

In the old-school ‘demanding’ advertisement listed in an undated newspaper, a “24/155 fair MBA beautiful girl from Rich Family Business Background” is looking for a groom. The requirements for the prospective groom include him being either an “IAS/IPS, a working doctor, or an industrialist, from the same caste”.

Despite having particular professional demands and casteist claims, the family doesn’t wish to entertain proposals from software engineers as the ad explicitly mentions “Software engineers kindly do not call”.

The picture of the bizarre ad was posted on Twitter by businessman Samir Arora with the caption, 'Future of IT does not look so sound'.

The additional clause with an odd preference grabbed eyeballs and made the ad go viral.

Twitterati had a field day over the absurd discrimination against software engineers. Take a look:

Considering the number of engineers the country produces every year, hopes are still high for the bachelors who are mechanical or civil engineers.
