Banned or not?

I thought some words were banned long ago !
Surprised to see this Matrimony Ad. in
'The Hindu' yesterday.
Why am I reading Matrimony ads? No idea..but they are more interesting than the news these days IMHO !

Some 6-7 years back, there was this advert in 'The Hindu' matrimonials. The dude was some IIT plus MS/Phd from the US.

He wanted a girl who was not only good looking but also meeting his standards.

As far as I can remember, these were the standards.

a) Both parents should be well educated professionals.
b) Girl should have completed BE/BTech from a top college.
c) Should have got top marks throughout high school/college.
d) Preferable MS (US) or MBA from IIM.

Used to wonder whether he just copied and pasted from a job advert posted by Infosys.

maybe the dude was also looking for someone whose first name started with a certain alphabet and last name started with another alphabet..
