As a woman crosses a certain age, everybody and their aunt gets interested in arranging a marriage for her. A hilarious personal account.
So, it is apparent that I am of marriageable age (as per Indian statistics) and there are many people around me – family, extended family, distant relatives, neighbors, friends-close/not so close, acquaintances, birds, animals, insects who are deeply concerned about my marriage than my parents or me. So, they unrelentingly judge, advice, ask, suggest, worry, poke, gossip, irritate, enquire, embarrass, offend, hurt and humiliate.
Since I couldn’t fall for a guy on my own, I fell for the concept of arranged marriage. Once and for all I have decided to clear all doubts or speculations around this conundrum.
The list is incomplete, ongoing.
Followed by training classes and mock tests. If interested, please register. (Absolutely free, free, free!)
