An Indian woman described it as “Here, we get married without having feelings for the person.
I suggest you pick up a few and break them out at an appropriate time, probably somewhere well into the second date.
A Jewish friend of mine remarked once, only half joking, that he believed Indians are the true Chosen People. I lived in India for about three years and my husband (currently known as my hus Pad, thanks to his appropriating the i Pad he "gave me," -- but that is another column) is from New Delhi, which, in addition to providing me with lots of Indian friends and in-laws, have given me a pretty good perspective on the desirability of the people from the world's largest democracy -- and how to woo them. If you are pinched for time, you can simply claim SRK is your favorite and move on. You don't want your date to think that if things go south, you will resort to stalking.
Before getting to "how," let's start with "why." There are obvious reasons one would want to date an Indian, such as how successful and professionally desirable they are. But, if you want to take some initiative, I highly recommend you familiarize yourself with some Bollywood actors and choose a favorite. Good luck and let me know how these suggestions work out.
Major bonus points if you suggest seeing a Hindi movie together. Bhangra is the percussion-heavy music that is featured in most Bollywood films.
Arranged marriages have always been a debatable subject.
