-They have cable (if they were narrow-minded they would be afraid of modern TV) so the girl can discover other cultures
-But they explain that the TV is responsible for their daughter's behavior : ?this is what comes of too many TV channels?
-The girl went to university
-But she probably went to university because being well-educated is an asset for marry her, not in order to guarantee that she will find a good job
-The boy can do whatever he wants ? working in America isn't an issue, which once again proves that they aren't narrow minded ? the parents are proud of him
-But Priti the parents don't expect the same thing from the girl and from the boy - Priti has a ?traditional? place in the family
-Priti's view differs from her parents (she's fully integrated in the modern globalized world and doesn't accept her parents double-standards) thus the parents clearly disapprove of their daughter's attitude, and are against the principle that she works
