We've had much depressing news the past couple of weeks with the Mumbai crisis. Nevertheless I travelled to the city and spent some memorable times the past few days. In spite of the shadow of terror that passed over the city, it seems to be bouncing back to its past glory. As always, I salute the indestructible and everlasting spirit of Mumbai.
Boy, am I glad for this break from routine. The past few days I have not checked emails, nor bothered to clear bulk spam folder offering aphrodisiacs to increase your drive, or miraculous cures for all problems in life, or solicitation for porn viewing, or invitation to participate in a secret account scheme from billionaire widows...haha! Nor drive in the annoying traffic congested roads to reach office in time and put in seven (no, eight) hours of attendance (no, work.) Ah, it's been bliss!
So, why did I travel this time? To grab some more opportunities to explore new places of course. No wait. That's not entirely true. I've travelled because I heard some people wish to get married.
There are so many options for suicide: poison, sleeping pills, hanging, lying on train tracks, jumping from buildings…but why marriage? Murder? No problem. But marriage. Why?
Hello all you people in love. Agreed love is one long sweet dream, but don't you know marriage is the alarm clock?
I wonder why people get married in spite of everyone knowing the wise never marry, because when they do, they become otherwise. It is a well known fact that love may be blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener!
Recent statistics reveal only 20 percent girls have brains, rest have boyfriends. It is said that when a man holds a woman's hand before marriage, it is love and after marriage it is in self-defence..haha! Excuse me, before you pounce on me, let me clarify I am not being sexist here, I am simply voicing out what I heard people say. Right now, the bride and groom are clueless as to what they are getting into. And I'm sure most married people agree with me..haha!
Don't worry guys and gals. We all make mistakes. Marriage, after all, is the triumph of imagination over intelligence..haha!
I hope the bride and groom won't get to read my post. If they do, I'm dead, and my specially tailored royal-blue-churidar-suit and the matching accessories and the half-hearted dieting I did to fit into it perfectly would all go waste!
In this age of utilizing wedding planners, there is not much left for me to do except discourage them from tying the knot, oops..I mean, give them some moral support and simply enjoy the whole sequence of events.
Hmm. Marriage. Everyone who wishes to should get married. After all, happiness is not the only thing in life..haha!
So...I shall be in touch with you all in a few days my dear blog friends. Until then, hic..ciao!
