BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ensuring the best for your daughter

arranged marriage

An Indian man tasked with seeking a husband for his daughter received a call from an insurance sales agent with Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Co., an Indian subsidiary of Allianz SE, which the father mistakenly thought was a proposal for an “alliance.”

And so goes a funny arranged-marriage story hitting the Twittersphere just in time for Valentine’s Day.

As shared this month by Twitter user Harsha Ramachandra, who preps followers with the insight that marital arrangements are a cultural norm, the insurance agent was invited to the house as a potential “Dulah,” or groom, much to the excitement of her mother, who had been getting on her father’s case to get their daughter married.

Days later, an “uncle-type guy” arrived for tea. The mix-up didn’t become clear until the agent eventually asked a question about investments, an inquiry that had her father “totally baffled,” and later laughing.
