Killing Casteism

He came home to find his mother mentioning their caste to a stranger filling a form.
"Ma! I told you to tell we are Indians!" he screamed.
His mother clarified, "But this is for your matrimonial ad not the census."

"But Shaadi before Naukri?" he asked.
His mother took him aside and said smugly, "Your uncle has arranged it. He knows the Sales VP of the company, you wanted to work in. He is from our community. And the VP has said, if its a good boy, we will adjust the criteria.."

They were interrupted with the question "Madam, should I mention "sub-sect no bar?"". The mother and son looked at one another, then he replied "Why waste money over it. Don't mention it".
