Marriages are a pain in the ass..Well,not literally..
Yeah it's a wonderful stuff where,to be put in the C language,
if(Things are all spic and span)
Two souls merge and unite into a single entity..
To quote a fellow blogger,"Marriage is like a bodyspray.It is fresh and nice in the beginning.But very soon the scent mixes with your sweat and combined effect is bad."
Yeah, it is a conditional clause..like a controlled reaction wherein,provided the stipulated temperature and atmospheric conditions are maintained,with the right amount of catalyst,the reaction takes the right course of action..A sheer negligence might prove catastrophic..
XX + XY --> xx/xy
(at aK,B torr,in the presence of C catalyst)
Given the mediocrity in occurrence of the reaction,it's quite plausible for the mortal souls to assume that initiation is pretty cheap,which obviously is worse than a misconception.. But it is quite a fact that only one of the reactants needs to bear 75% of the cost..XX to be precise..
The enzymes required being money in the liquid and solid form..Money in the transformed versions of the grandiose scheme of ceremonies.. Money to be invested in banks and real estates for the secured future of the newbies..
Yours truly was lucky enough to witness a couple of such grand events recently,where the bride was to wear about 10 silk sarees,(5 being compulsory in the custom,which i suppose has been grossly manipulated,misinterpreted and mutilated in favor of the subject),each amounting to a minimum of 7k..and 2.4kg gold,after which the bride might have even had a cervical spontilitis..with marriage ceremonies lasting for 2 days,and a reception as an embellishment..
The queer characteristic of such a reaction is that,the source of XX needs to not only initiate the reaction,but also keep providing the required impetus for the reaction in the form of periodic visits with fortunes,bear the expenses of maintaining the product of the reaction in the amicable conditions aka bring out the progeny..
I was not intending to make it a bawl post.. So i swerve away..
There i was,in the auditorium..With vidya,my childhood friend..
Marriages are boring but for one thing..the handsome and beautiful people showing up..They are the only means of entertainment without any age bar..There were these guys,who ostensibly were the groom's friends..one being tall and handsome by my yardsticks..Not that we were being one of those cheap and silly oglers..but rather subtle beholders..I was particularly curious about this guy's status,for i had seen him with a girl the day before..And so were we,comfortably enjoying the new-found obsession,when suddenly i hear a male voice next to me..
"I suppose both the guys are in the market..And one of them just had his mom ask for you..You want me to proceed or what?",that was my honorable manufacturer..
For once i felt i was doomed..all my feuds at home to push away my marriage for 2yrs,were all to be futile..Oh My God..I looked around with embarrassment..But without much ado,there was this lady heading to us..I couldn't concentrate on her talks with my dad,coz the embarrassment had made me almost deaf,dumb and blind..
And then i heard,"No,she's not gonna get married for next two years.."
Praise the Lord..
