Indian Matchmaking Stereotypes Reinforced?



Did Indian Matchmaking hold a mirror to our society? Is this show a reality of how most of the general public think?

In this conversation we will unravel and explore some of the central themes surrounding this series such as the reality of the Indian arranged marriage system in India, gender stereotyping, the need for women to be flexible and compromise for a successful marriage and the rampant casteism, classism prevalent in our society.

A lot has been written about “The Social Dilemma”, a Netflix documentary with some calling it a propaganda against social media networks while helpless social media addicts strongly believe otherwise. In this conversation today we will unpack some of the central themes of this film ranging from the veracity in the business model portrayed to surveillance capitalism. We will question the invisible force that has been accused of shaping the personalities of its users to suit the unfair gains of these platforms.
