THE MATRIMONIAL BANQUET AT ISNA...

...I alternated between shuddering and laughing when I first read this Times article a couple of days ago. I'd love to hear what non-Muslims think about all of this silly matchmaking craziness. And, just for the record, even my mom feels that some of the mothers and (ALL) clergylike folks interviewed in the article are kooky and wholly ridiculous.

Winner of the best mom ever from the article: the education professor who suggests a group called Mothers Against Dating--modeled on Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

It's Muslim Boy Meets Girl, But Don't Call it Dating

I was totally going to call it MADD (Mothers Against Desi Dating) in the Lollywood & Bollywood tradition of emulating storylines from Hollywood, but I think MAD still gets the job done.
