The matrimonial ads have their own complexion code pyramid. There’s fair and lovely at the top. Then the glowing wheatish complexion. Then medium complexion apparently unglowing.

I thought it would be an open and shut case. As time progressed, it changed. The more information came out, the more complicated the case became. And then the verdict was announced.
