Sunday Long Reads: Indian Matchmaking, the legacy of Shakuntala Devi, US Elections, books, and more
Indian Matchmaking shows picky individuals with a long list of demands that centre around caste, height and skin colour. A new Netflix show about an Indian matchmaker catering to the high demands of potential brides and grooms, and their parents, has stoked an online debate about arranged marriages in the country. The eight-part series, Indian Matchmaking, premiered on Netflix last week and is currently among its top-ranked India shows.
It features Sima Taparia, a real-life matchmaker from Mumbai, who offers her services to families in India and abroad. The show has become the subject of memes, jokes, and criticism, about the pickiness of the potential spouses and their parents, with long lists of demands centring around factors like caste, height or skin colour. Indian Matchmaking isn’t just about the liberal colorist and sexist fabric South Asian cultures are steeped in.

But her eyes kept moving. They tracked the clusters of young women zigzagging from Zara to Calvin Klein Jeans. They lingered on a face, a gesture, and then moved on, darting across the atrium, searching. For Ms. In Joy City, Ms. Yang gave instructions to her eight-scout team, one of six squads the company was deploying in three cities for one Shanghai millionaire.
Yang said. From across the atrium, a co-worker of Ms. Yang caught her eye and nodded at a woman in a blue dress, walking alone. Yang intercepted her in the sweater aisle.

On her last visit to Liberty Bay’s tavern, Snoopy had noticed a hand-written note pinned to the wall. It had mentioned a missing ring, a contact person, and a reward. She had forgotten about it, but now that Valentine’s day was close, and people were talking about truelove teddies and heart backpacks, the image of the note kept flashing back up in her mind. She sensed a sad story behind it. So without further ado she packed her things, saddled Truly Dooly, and headed to Liberty Bay.
She wanted to find out if the ring was still missing, and if she could be of any help. When she entered the Silverhand Manor, home of the contact person Lady Eleonore , she could hear sighs coming from upstairs. She found Eleonore dressed in a beautiful gown, sobbing deeply. When Snoopy mentioned the note, Eleonore explained that a ring had been stolen by a parrot and that it was indeed still missing, probably lost forever.
She indicated the direction that the parrot had taken off in – the Vandura Mountains. Eleonore seemed a bit distanced and Snoopy figured that she would not get more details here. A bit disappointed because there had not been a story, she accepted the mission to look for the ring nevertheless. The search for the ring gave her a good reason to explore the mountains.
She was not in any rush.

We analyze three games using our new solution concept, subgame perfect equilibrium SPE. It has three Nash equilibria but only one is consistent with backward induction. We show the other two Nash equilibria are not subgame perfect: each fails to induce Nash in a subgame. The second game involves a matchmaker sending a couple on a date. There are three Nash equilibria in the dating subgame.
We construct three corresponding subgame perfect equilibria of the whole game by rolling back each of the equilibrium payoffs from the subgame. Finally, we analyze a game in which a firm has to decide whether to invest in a machine that will reduce its costs of production. We learn that the strategic effects of this decision—its effect on the choices of other competing firms—can be large, and if we ignore them we will make mistakes.
Matchmaking is just a walk in park
I was in the middle of an editorial meeting at the newspaper I worked for in when it came out of nowhere: an overwhelming sense of fear, the trembling hands, the absolute certainty that my heart was going to burst out of my chest. It would be years before I understood that what I had experienced that day — and would on three subsequent occasions — was a panic attack. I was 24, and just two hours before, my parents had called to ask me to be home on time that night.

Commentary: What Netflix’s ‘Indian Matchmaking’ doesn’t tell you about arranged marriage
Sitting in stopped traffic to take her to see Santa in a Christmas parade was not my ideal Saturday. My ex-wife, though, had deemed it an appropriate outing for my weekend. Celebrating a successful marketing campaign the night before had not been the best of plans.
You might have an issue deeper than matchmaking, or maybe you’re just unlucky. Rather than focus on using any boosters on your low tier tech tree each of these will reduce your pool until you sit all alone waiting for a.
Enjoy this short story featuring Snowball the kitten in her new home, Weber Haus, a beautiful Victorian inn filled with love. A few seconds later, a head popped round the corner to the sitting room where Morgan was curled up on a rather uncomfortable antique settee. This little cat, still so tiny and precious, had been her constant companion. Emily tipped her chin at the sunlight streaming through the one window in the small room. Shopping maybe. Morgan glanced outside.
Of Matchmaking and Spell Breaking…
When Sophie’s excitement bubbled up, Fitz’s steadiness slowed her down, saving her from pushing into a trap. And when Fitz grew too impatient, Sophie was there to calm his mind before he rushed the wrong direction. From holding hands to crying on each others’ shoulders, the two are very close. Beginning from when they first met in a museum in San Diego in the first book, Sophie has had a crush on him.
These feelings often cause her to blush and her heart to flutter when she is around him. The two also hold hands often, for Cognate training, moral support, and romance.

With his team of relationship managers, counsellors, photographers, chartered accountants and a sophisticated software that helps sort out matches based on location, community, age and height, among other filters, Goswami found a life partner for the year-old that checked all the boxes. I met a lot of people and my family stepped in only when I was sure. Indian Matchmaking unpacks only selectively what an upper-class, upper-caste Indian marriage entails.
Prime Woman: Why Shakuntala Devi was a woman who wanted it all. The day after, on June 26, , the front page of a local newspaper, The Odessa American , splashed a photograph of her on its front page. She is sitting with her back to a blackboard, on which is scrawled a ginormous number, spilling across 10 rows, which a professor at South Methodist University, Dallas, Texas has taken four minutes to scribble.
The task is to find the 23rd root of the digit number. For a computer programmed to compute the same, it takes over a minute. Shakuntala Devi does it in 50 seconds.
Azerbaijan inside out: Small and big matchmaking
Last June, I celebrated my tenth anniversary with Bideawee. Those years have been spent both as a matchmaker and as a cat behavior specialist. Some organizations have different staff for each component of animal care, but here at Bideawee, adoption matchmakers clean cages and kennels, feed and medicate, carry out behavior modification plans, and, of course, introduce potential adopters to our available pets. There is, truly, rarely a dull moment!

Lin Binyu’s criteria would appear pretty straightforward as Chinese singles ads go, except that he’s on the prowl not for himself, but for his son. And he’s looking not in the newspaper or online, but at the local park, where every Sunday he can meet hundreds of other parents just as anxious to find spouses for wayward children who somehow made it to their mids without getting married. In China’s thriving big cities, young adults on the modern career track are getting married later and later, and these parents in Beijing aren’t putting up with it anymore – whether the children like it or not.
The matchmaking is traditional Chinese society’s answer to the complications of the modern world, and it’s fitting that it should take place in a city park, where urban China’s retiring set seek daily refuge from the traffic and congestion of cities they would not recognize from their youth. On any of four days each week, parents go to one of three Beijing parks to play matchmaker, and the numbers are growing now that Chinese media outlets have spotlighted the months-old practice.
The weekly Sunday gathering at Zhongshan is probably the largest, with close to 1, parents mingling on a recent Sunday afternoon. A number of parents are clearly hardened veterans, sitting with their thermoses of tea and waiting for all comers, often with computer printouts laid out in front of them detailing their children’s attributes.
