Harrish’s mother Padma (58), placed the ad in Mumbai tabloid, Mid-Day, on Tuesday and it caught wildfire on social media networks.Getting the ad published was not a cakewalk for Padma in a country where homosexuality is still illegal and a social taboo.

“Seeking 25-40, Well-placed, Animal-loving, Vegetarian GROOM for my son (36, 5’11”) who works with an NGO, Caste No Bar,” proclaimed the unique, trendsetting ad.

Waiting in the wings for a suitable male match, Harrish is no stranger to name and fame, though his mother justified the ad contending that the concerns of a gay offspring’s mother are the same as any other parent.

They also plan the marriage as a traditional, ritualistic, vegetarian affair, though they are also keeping all options open for the probable groom’s choices and sentiments.
