No. Unless a girl is in dire straits and want money to tide over a very serious situation, she will never want to marry a older person.It is the presumption of males to think so.No girl of 20 wants to marry either Mr Man Mohan Singh or Dr Abdul Kalam, even if they admire him and adore him.

Why do we keep India different from the rest of the world? If this logic you say is good for girls all over the globe then what should stop India's girls to follow suit? Perhaps you would say "our great culture"! :-)

Money and power might attract some girls to older men, but such girls are few. The girls who are ambitious mostly do that. The girls with rational thinking will look for money and power in younger men too, and there are many who have it abundantly. Only those who cannot attract younger men would mostly go after older men. I have seen after old men die they seek young men. It shows that after all they all want young men. Some get them directly and some on the rebound.

Except in most of the villages where girls do not have any say but to agree and marry the man chosen for them by their parents/elders/guardians, I do not think this is true. Some girls get attracted to handsome men, some get attracted to intelligent men, some to men in higher positions but rarely some to older men. Hence, I think that the girls getting attracted to older men is a minority and exception to the general rule. In the towns and cities, nowadays, girls chose men for themselves and get married. The family has to just give their "ashirwad" and that is all.

Not necessary Prasoon.. When a girl from a decent background gets inclined towards elderly person..she is actually looking for Guardianship in every respect..which is lacking in her present life.. just like Amitabh Bachan.. the kind of persona he holds the age factor do not get considered at all for women.. (Pl delete his money and fame only his personality)... My father holds the similar personality like Amitabh Bachan..

This statement of yours is more relevant in the subcontinent and not in the indian context.In india even if younger girls were attracted to older men ,they wouldn't dare to disclose their feelings except for few exceptions who are basically celebrities.intellect is the clincher for both the young and the old.money and power can attract anyone at any time.

This is a universal statement and applicable for all societies and applicable for the whole globe.But the percentage follow this , is phenomenon is very less .As the number of rich and powerful is quite low and there is a very tough competition to attain or get a place there.Personally do not feel there is anything wrong in this,as this is a discretion of an individual to go for this.This attraction is not gender based ,and both the males and females try to get it .after all only intellect can not fill an empty stomach.
