Whilst he was hardworking and I believe his intentions are good, some of the personal habits I observed left a lot to be desired.
Even at that point, he cowered and seemed incapable of admitting and facing the truth of his own behaviour. I recently arranged to catch up with an intelligent man I had come across, but on our first meeting he brought along a female friend.My simplistic explanation on why this behaviour is tolerated comes down to the arranged marriage.The men I have observed undertaking this behaviour tend to be of lesser socio-economic means, and in my rudimentary understanding of the intricacies of Indian culture, I believe they are more likely to have an arranged marriage.In my opinion, if they had to go out and attract a woman entirely on their own (and assuming she had unfettered free will and choice in the matter), they would be less likely to indulge in these behaviours. In years past I have come to India for work, and in my current stay in Delhi I am living with family and am privy to another side of India.Whilst the professional men that I have met don’t have the more distasteful personal habits, I do still find them very difficult to understand.
