When the matter comes to marriage about their daughter, and when the daughter says that “I have someone in my life and I want to marry that person and he is not of same cast as we are”, they will start with their 17th centuries crap dialogues like,

“We will not accept any other samaj’s guy in our SAMAJ”
“We will cut off relation with you if you marry that guy”
