I really love this British Airways video, and I’m not surprised that it went viral. It’s not even five-minutes long, but it gives you a little insight into what it’s like to be part of an arranged marriage in India and not really be able to know your spouse, before and even after marriage because of family responsibilities. British Airways helped this couple (Sumeet and Chetna) get away from it all—and closer to each other.
Really, I do not BELIEVE in “arranged marriage.” Knew a man from India who met his future wife at his going away to America party. Love at first sight — she was simply someone invited to the party. He delayed his trip to America, married her and they lived in love until he died.
My favorite couple they were.
