having successfully accomplished the marriage of my elder brother, mother said, as if surrendering, “you better go for a love marriage for yourself. we will not be able to arrange a wedding for you. it is so tiring a business.”
an average guy would have loved this opportunity – a go ahead from parents to give the much desired legal touch to ones love life. many of the guys wait forever to disclose their love interest to parents.
in fact, mother too wasn’t serious about the love marriage issue. her idea of love is – the girl must be from same (or at the least) upper class, be fair in complexion, be educated, and finally hail from a family that is lesser in stature than us and yet not be too poor, so that they can afford some dowry.
But mom, love is blind and it is impossible to choose love mates with so many requirements in mind. we cannot arrange a love, you see.
love for me is an altogether alien concept. 27 years and the love virus has yet not struck me. will it strike now or in the near future? difficult to answer. so for a love marriage, there must be someone who i love. as there is none, so the idea about love marriage is a complete flop.
can’t say that way. in fact i like all girls and ladies and aunties. what’s more, i can also find a trait/s to dislike in all of them. none of them comes as a perfect piece. so the liking soon turns into a dislike.
don’t want to end the blog post so soon. also cannot come across some thing to write. was planning to write about my preferences in a girl (or what qualities make a girl sound and look perfect to me), but couldn’t come across anything specific. so i would better end the post here.
