Rusty Beck: [examining Dr. Joe's dollhouse] This is new... and also kind of creepy. Why do the dolls look dead?
Dr. Joe Bowman: I asked one of my younger patients to tell me what it was like at home. She didn't want to say, so she demonstrated by shaking the dollhouse really hard and screaming, "Earthquake!"
Rusty Beck: I suppose you read some sort of deep meaning into that?

social commentary about India without bothering to google about India

This episode was what made me stop binge-watching this show on amazon prime.

If they were to make an episode about "Oooh, these Indians have regressive arranged marriages, let us make an episode on that" - then randomly picking arbitrary Indian names for the characters, with no research at all about either Indian people or arranged marriages is not the way to do it.

First off, a "Madhavan" would never have an "arranged" marriage with a Sethi. Second, a Madhavan, being Tamil / Malayali, is extremely unlikely to pay a dowry, least of all to a Sethi - who is Punjabi.

Third, is might be a surprise to the show's American writers, but Indians too, like you, don't tend to get married off at 18 - least of all Diplomats' daughters.

As an Indian, I found this episode sanctimonious rubbish. I understand that it was made for a progressive American audience, to reinforce their progressiveness and make the said audience feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, the show's producers seem to have forgotten that they distribute this over Indian cable channels / streaming services.
