Digitisation has changed the way people search for their life partner. However, of late, some old-school matrimonial advertisements in newspapers have grabbed eyeballs on the Internet for their peculiar content. This time, one such ad for a groom has gone viral on Twitter.
As per the advertisement, the groom must be an IAS/IPS; working doctor (PG); industrialist/businessman. Besides these requirements, the ad also has a special instruction at the end which reads, “Software engineers kindly do not call”. In the caption, the person, who shared the pic, joked, “Future of the IT does not look so sound”.
