Arranged Marriage Anyone?



Hmmm.. I am the one who has chosen to get married with a person my folks set me up with. For those who are not acquainted with what is eating me up, refer to Mission Dulha Dhoondo.

It has got on my nerves to an extent that it gives me shudders every now and then. Not that I am skeptical that my parents wont find me a good match, but coz the prospective grooms are sometimes so tacky and fatigued that I wonder what would become of me if I struck with a person for my lifetime who could not keep me interested.

I met such a guy. He had come over to my place with his family. Now when it came to getting to know each other, he proposed that it would be awkward talking circumferenced with relatives and all, so we should go out for a drive and then talk. I dint mind and went with him.

I don't know but I had a feeling that he was somewhat uncomfortable and uneasy. Therefore, I had to initiate talking. And in no less than 5 minutes I reached the 'saturation point' where I could no longer drag the conversation.

I quit. Neither did he speak anything. So I increased the volume of the music and sat staring out of the window. I don't know what got into me and I felt dizzy. What else can you do on an aimless long drive..

And that finally ended up with my dozing off in the car while the guy continued driving a destination less journey..

I felt that when he realized that I am sleeping, he had pulled one of the edges of my Dupatta to make sure I was. And then he would have turned the car towards home.

He literally shook me to wake me up when we reached home. I felt somewhat embarrassed and got out of the car and ran inside the home.
I think I heard him calling behind my back, but I dint stop to answer. OMG!! In such a situation any sane person would feel disgusted. And my sincere condolences to that guy..

Oh and then I heard a faint familiar beep- beep in the back ground and woke up to realize that it was a dream. Or a nightmare. Whatever.. Thank Gawd!!

Now stop rolling and drop in your comments about your take what would you do struck in similar situation. In my as well as the in the guys shoes :D

Arjun said...

haha.. :P

If i was u.. I would have sat there..dozing off.. but slapping my self to stare at him... again...doze off.. again get up..slap urself and stare at him.... If he still doesnt talk.. then wink.. if he still doesnt.. Then officially wish him 'Good night'... and..zzzz..zzzzzzzzzz.zzzzzzz... :P

If i was that guy..... I wld have parked the car n gone to sleep as well.. atleast wld have pretended to be asleep.. so that when u wake up u'll start thinking so hard as to what the damn thing happened?? hehehe

For 24/7 assistance & suggestions for ur 'Mission Dulha Dhoondo'... pls contact and bribe me... ;)

Cheers..!!

It can get embarrassing and people do get judgmental very quickly!
A lot of times, people turn out to be very different than our first impressions don't they.
But then arranged marriage is more about committing to make it work rather than the other way round. And most of the time, you get what u committed to get.
Just that it needs to be both ways!
All the best in ur search !

What a dream!!! :D :D :D

I guess you should just approach this with an open mind? I don't know! I'm too young to give advice on this plus still busy laughing!!! :D

Sakshi said...

Ughhh...silly girl! And horrendous dreams. But chill, this won't happen. If the guy asks you out on a drive to talk, rest assured that he will talk. And if YOU sleep, you are a dud or just, sleepy. Both are fine. I would probably ask him "aapne itna kyun pakaaya ki mujhe neend hi aa gayi...aur so hi gayi thi toh jagaa hi dete" :P

Arranged marriages? lol. The idea makes me laugh.

Dream'R said...

I've heard the mind playing tricks on you, but this was a first for sure! Hilarious, and thank god it was a dream... or was it? ;) hehehehehe

Arnab Majumdar said...

And I just noticed the ads that were mentioned underneath the post... and now I'm ROFLMAO!!! :D

Nachi said...

haha!! i remember those days when my cousin was undergoing the same 'visits' ordeal. most often we ended up equating those blokes to members of the animal kingdom. i saw a gecko, a lemur and even a meerkat.it was a zoo. the amicable red panda got the "thumbs up"!

:Das for being in your shoes, i would have stopped the car over at a pub. bought us both a round of drinks & go back home once the other person is so knocked out that the shoes no longer match!

as for my 'to be' bride falling asleep in the car. well, i would have quietly drove back to her home. allowed her to sleep in the car, while i picked up my 'tag along family' and then drive back to my place with her still in the car. Kidnapped!!

wonder what the look on her face would be like when she woke up and i told her that... "baby, while you were sleeping its all over and decided. this is your new home. step in and take charge woman."

:D

Jinxed Pixie said...

sheesh mann...
scaryy..

akanksha said...

LOL! :D
Glad that it was just a dream. :-)
Would have been an embarassing situation in reality.

And it feels good to know that there is some one else except me who is facing 'arranged marriage tantrums' from family!

Check out my last two posts to find out whats happening to me.
I haven't said YES to meet any guy yet :D

Mayz said...

americanising desi said...

call me weird but i like the mystery!

Sam said...

if the meet wasmt going newhere then u cud have avoided going on the drive...

no point dragging on the things when nothin is matchin....

somebody shud hv backed out!!!

Constructive Attitude said...

oh man that sucks. why did he ask to go for a ride then if hes not even going to make it entertaining. guys are just weird sometimes.

Mahul Bhattacharya said...

Dunno what I wd do if I were you.

But if were the guy, I wd know for certain that I was destined to be single for life.

As a matter of fact, I have always lived with that sneaking feeling. ;)

Phoenix said...

while reading all i could think of is

F*&^K F *&^k

Keshi said...

If I had been there, I would have asked him to stop n disappeared.If i had been the guy,I would have dropped off the girl n driven off.C my blog now./

bondgal_rulz said...

*Relieved that it was just a dream* :)

Hmm...if I were the girl, I think I'd have just started calling up my friends with whom I've not been able to be in touch for a while and made up for all the lost time. ;)

And in case I was the guy and had a girl sleeping in my car, I'd have turned the volume of the radio so loud that she'd have no option but to get up and get lost. :D

Great post. :)

Cheers

Kartz said...

U had me for a second there, buddy! I was beginning to wonder - what the heck!?! :D

Anyways, good luck! :)

Peace. Be well.

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Thats the reason why people say dont go for arrange marriage...

one ends up so badly that his/her life goes nowhere but the way for downfall....

Anyways good that you realised it was just a dream and nothing else..

Keep writing...:)

If I were you..I would do the same If I dont like the person..

muthu said...

hmhm.... i have always wondered is marriage something you have to do, in a particular age in our culture...

why do people insist on getting together with a person who you have no idea of, just b coz to get married.....

do try my post on love and marriage...
