Are you 20-something…finished or just about to finish your studies, working or in search of a job…Single…Or even a little mingled???
Oh and btw are you a girl?? If yes..read along…if not..still read..(a little info never hurt anybody!)
Do you hate going to social functions with your parents? Does some long lost relative look at you and say “arre wah…mulgi mothi zhaali… ” as if you were supposed to stay small all your life? Do your sari day pictures reach places/people you dont even know??
If yes…welcome to this world…if no…you soon will.
Well its the marriage season..and as my friend pointed out “We are hot property..!!! ”
But along the way come few incidents..which surprise you/ amuse you/ create a cause of worry/ make you angry/sad or even disappoint you.
Here are a few experiences..
“ My friend in the office has a son, who’s stays in Australia, and is coming down to see girls… When you called up yesterday..I was sitting with her, and I just happened to mention that Abha will be completing her MBA this year….” my door-ke-rishtedar tells my mom
Oh how convenient!
I glare at my mother and she glares back! Even if your mother has still not realized that she should get you married, its these “door-ke-rishtedar” who suddenly become close enough and make our parents realize that its high time.
You will not believe what happened to me recently!!
At a name keeping ceremony I went to, an unknown lady walked up to me and asked “whats your height??” Without thinking much, I told her my height (or rather the lack of it! 🙁 ) .
She seemed disappointed..
“My son has also done computer engineering.” ya rite! Now I know where this is heading…
“But he’s 6’2”…she turned her head..from side to side..
REJECTED! I could almost hear her say that….
I smiled. Never have I felt so good about my height!
She wandered away, in search of a taller bride…
“Im not telling you to get married today” my friend’s parents told my friend barely 6 months ago.
“Just start seeing now, and anyway it takes at least an year to search-finalize- get engaged-and marry”
As I write this she’s in Singapore, on her honeymoon. 😉
PS:To all my friends who are getting engaged/married : PLEASE STOP putting pics on Facebook…my mom is watching!!!!!
