"Do not show: Feminists and independent women."

Rajesh Rajamani, a Chennai-based ex-banker, runs Inedible India, a webcomic series that offers sociopolitical satire on our society. He just uploaded a series called "Tinder For Desi Men".

"It's supposed to be a satire on how Indian men date using modern technology but whose values are still deeply ingrained in caste and patriarchy. I used screenshots of Tinder and made changes to it in such a way that Indian men might ideally prefer it," he added. The series uses vintage Ravi Varma and Kalighat paintings to accentuate the satire, explained Rajamani.
