Those of us who are South Asian certainly know about the matchmaker auntie or "Rishta Auntie" as is known in some circles. Netflix's recent show "Indian Matchmaking" gave us a glimpse into this world and I had the pleasure of sitting down with Vyasar Ganesan who was one of the main characters from the series. Vyasar is a college counselor and writer based out of Austin, Texas who engages the help of master matchmaker Sima Taparia from Mumbai to find him a spouse. I chop it up with Vyasar about relationships, various angles on matchmaking, some insights on the show, and the stigma of being a 6 foot 7 inch brown guy.
