Wonderful article! Loved it. Some more questions that should be asked at the cute-meet aka the first meet up with the prospective candidate.

1. What do you think about taking care of parents? Does he think the have responsibility to take care of only his parents or will he be accepting of the responsibility of taking care of her parents as well in their old age. (I say this because as we get into our sixties, I see how couples are stepping forward to take care of both sets of parents with old age challenges of health, safety, indepence etc).

2. What is your opinion of the woman sharing some of her salary income with her parents ? Sons supporting their parents is deemed acceptable but daughters supporting their parents is considered an exceptional situation.

Learnt a lot about the pain points of modern married women in India, and it was enlightening for a middle-aged man like me!

Hey Jeff, Google says they typically update podcasts a few hours after release. It could take a bit longer in this case because I am releasing an episode after quite a while and so Google might not be crawling my feed as frequently. I will keep an eye out and leave a comment here for you once I see it up. Sorry about this.

Not at all, nothing to be sorry about, Google is just being Google we all commoners have to abide, thanks for replying

Listened to this amazing conversation, a thought

Do you think it is a good idea to curate a short version for children, age 10 to 15.

I know it will be very challenging but just imagine the impact it could have.

Not exactly for kids but I am already working on a series for parents of kids. Which kids are also welcome to listen to with parental guidance of course. 😊
