I do not know why do you think that way? Software professionals are very much in demand and considered as eligible bachelors, particularly.
Recently just a fortnight back, a colleague of mine got her daughter, who is a dentist by profession, married off to a software engineer.
This guy is working is U.S and the girl now has to leave with him for US. There Indian Degree of B.D.S is of no use. Poor girl, either she has to proceed further studies there or give up her profession and be a home maker.
Your profile says you are doing M.Tech. Are you doing software engg.? If so don't be upset. It all depends on how one is placed in career after the academic qualification?
With best wishes
