The life of the single woman is everybody’s business, in India. My life is not incomplete without a husband, says this post.
There is a switch which goes on in everyone’s mind as soon as a single girl crosses 25. The light, which the switching on of this switch generates, manages to pale every other finer feeling in comparison. You know what I mean, much like the sun’s light obliterating every star’s.
So, I, who was once a “smart girl”, “slightly obese girl”, “the-one-who’s-studying-neurobiology girl”, “really funny girl”, “a short-tempered girl”, “oh-so-ambitious girl”, “the-one-who-writes-well girl” (ahem) is now reduced to only “not-yet-married-girl”. This light, which this God-forsaken switch casts, manages to make sure all my other epithets are wiped off. Although, the negative ones pop out at times when they discuss why I am “not-married-yet”.
…after coming back to the native land, the only welcome I received was a standard question “So, when are you getting married now?”
Likes to write. Does it occasionally. Talks constantly.

These girls are special.They independent and strong. I would suggest not to marry else you may spoil the relationship.
well said swapna 🙂
Well put in words, although i feel 25 is too early to ask THE question.
Very well written Swapna. You are absolutely correct – good relationships are important but being in a “relationship” shouldn’t be the only validation for a “happy’ life for a woman and even for that matter men. These age deadlines in the society makes it worse – relationships happen when they have to happen.
Thank you Sophia!
