This question came to me because of a funny question by a friend.
I have this friend - Aniket, who was born in US and just migrated to India, knows little about the culture here.
Another friend was talking about his marriage plans: I have seen few, shortlisted 3 and very close to select 1. (Most part of India this is normal)
Aniket asked: Are you getting married or are you buying a car?
So I thought it will be fun to know about how marriage is fixed in different part of the world.
