Bride to be...
Being an unmarried 23 year-old Indian girl is not easy...day in and day out people drop in to suggest the best matrimonial matches. But given that everyone in my family has known Ji for three years, I took it for granted that I shouldnt face such an imbroglio. This morning I heard in disbelief my granny say over the phone, 'Dear, there's an excellent match for you...the guy's got an own home, a lovely job in one of the MNCs. I want you to change your mind, forget Ji and ponder over this match. If you concede, we would have the kundalis matched right away.' I thought this was some kind of silly joke and burst out laughing...lolz!
Add to it, after the call, mom quips, backed up by my aunt, 'So what do you say?' Another shocker! I told them plainly that there was nothing to say...that it's absurd to even think of such things after coming so far! Hope they leave it at that :) !
