I know, you are very disappointed with me. I lost, oh wait, we lost the alliance of India’s most eligible bachelor today. Because of my lame reason ,”I’m not ready for marriage.”
Sounds lame, right? It is not. I can’t get married just because our relatives’ daughters get married by 23. They’ve either got settled in their careers or don’t have any, if you observe keenly. That maasi’s daughter whose example you give me, did she get married out of her own will? No. She became a victim of the age-old killer dialogue “Log kya kahenge?”
The society praising me endlessly will not make me so happy as my success will do. Also, I don’t want to be praised because I found a bridegroom who earns in millions. It is his talent and endeavour,not mine. I’ve completed my education six months back. I did get a job but I’m not totally settled. Settling is not synonymous to five- digit salary. I need to understand the industry I’m working, the responsibility I’ve taken up and the worth of money I earn. I’m just a kid. In front of you,in front of the world.
I’ll definitely get married. I’ll marry a man who’ll make you proud. I’ll be an ideal daughter-in-law and a supportive wife. But any of these cannot happen right now. I am not in a position to share my life with another person, within the next few months merely because he can’t come to India again or because great-great-grandmom wishes to see my kids.
