Of Marriages and No Marriages!!

Now one thing a girl can do after 20 and a dozen or more rejections from B-schools or any PG courses that a guy can't do is.... GET MARRIED! Yeah, finally, nature is positively biased towards us girls! No, I haven't been rejected by a dozen B-schools.... itni bhi mand nahi hoon yaar! But, I've had enough of studying! Since that fateful day when I fought with Mom to take Science (Mom, a science double-grad herself begged and begged me to take Commerce...but those were the days when you considered Commerce people as 'lesser mortals' only to switch fields after 5 years !!) I don't really remember having a vacation to myself... except the one in FY....but that was in 2007!! Every vacation, my other friends think of where to go out and holiday... and I think about which new classes to join....every vacation!(This vacation...its Taekwondo.... gotta fight for yourself and stand up for yourself.... don't expect people to do it for you!) So this year, finally after screwing up almost everything....TY...MBA... everything, I decided that the best thing would be to get married! 

P.S:  If my kid (son, if) pick up books....he's gonna have it....he'll have to pick up the bat and sweat it out in the sun....and beat Aanchal's son in getting the jersey no 11!! Aanch, you still game right? You dare name your kid Ayaan!

Its just so frustrating having slogged your ass off to get where you are, still you are nowhere! And this bloody f**king recession has to hit mankind only when you are passing out.... Firstly the wonderful BSc degree, secondly B-schools expect work-ex from you and thirdly recession...how on Earth are you gonna have a job?? So in this scenario, the best thing would be to get up and tell your parents...okay, fine... I'm a graduate (hopefully...please God, get me passed..please... or I'll be known as an HSC pass all my life....and my kids will mock at me.... what if someone writes on their hand "Tumhari maa sirf 12vi pass hain"??!)...so now, I don't really have much to do in life...so find a good, handsome, rich guy and get me married...!! Even they'll dance in joy finally being able to get rid of you!


I've been talking to a lot of people who have developed this get-me-married-off-for-mental-peace thing...and all of them seem to be somehow excited by the institution of marriage! Because they've been to their cousins' weddings and have had a little more than a crush on their jiju's brother/best friend/any random from the baraat....or they're plain frustrated with life... or maybe because they've become so attention starved due to all the attention going to recession/terrorism/elections/Slumdog Millionaire these days that this is the only way to get noticed!! Well, I fall into the second category, if you were wondering!


Ok, fine, jokes apart... I'm not getting married! Neither do I want to... not right now...maybe after 4 years... that's the max time I can get (bloody Gujju systems). I had just gotten acclimatised with the wonderful I'll-too-get-married-one-day feelings and bang... new twist in tale.... again, I've gone back to my -urrghhhh-I-don't - wanna get married stance! First reason was that I saw the episode of Balika Vadhu where Sugna's husband comes a dead body for her wedding and she's totally distraught by it. Man! I don't really watch these soaps.. but was watching it because I was feeling too lazy to change the channel (hey, all you engineers, can't you invent a remote where channels change the moment we think about changing the channel in our head??)and I must say, I had tears in my eyes in that one episode...it was really sad. And I also told one of my friends..what if my husband dies like this?? Yeah...I got a lot of Stop-watching-soaps lectures for this dialogue of mine!! But trust me the thought of it is creepy...! I mean, all your life, you wait for that one person...that one day...it comes to you...but DEAD! Gosh! 
I know, I seriously need rehab!


The second reason was Arshat's blogpost... on daughters getting married! I mean not fair yaar!!! You made me change my mind about getting married....ever!!


Another reason you don't feel like getting married is because you've come face to face with the worst characteristics of guys.... their huge... Petrona's Tower sized EGO! I mean WTF! Done nothing worthwhile in life...but have ego like you're Obama! But good, you learn things before it's too late.... Sometimes even 10 minutes is too much to ask for...so much for EGO...I say.... go f**k your ego... it'll be good for you! Again, Arshat had said in one of his posts... Like every other guy...he blamed her...and like every girl in love...she took all the blame...! So true!! Girls have a tremendous limit to endure things...but why do guys stretch it to the limit...and then after 6 months, come begging for forgiveness?!? Have they never taken Shakespeare seriously.... Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Guess, now they should.


Anyways, I got a very good observation from a friend, who too, like me wants/wanted to get married asap! .... Girls make such a fuss about leaving their homes and getting married to a guy... think about the guy...having to take such a huge responsibility of a whole woman..at an age...where they're not even responsible for their towel!! LMAO! Aanch, how does it feel finally having me using your creations?!??


Ah! So after 30 mins of mindless typing, I realize I've written anything but coherent, sensible stuff...so don't really read unless you're jobless and have nothing to do(in that case...can you please finish off making chits for me to take to the exam hall?) or are plain frustrated having antigens and antibodies/drosophila/restriction endonucleases/genetics ruling your life, read on!. If you've read it, have a heart and comment!


P.S:  I'm NOT getting married before I'm 24....that's a cool 4 years from now.

P.S 2:  Listen to Aankhon hi Aankhon from the movie EMI. Mohit Chauhan has never been better!!
Bas Yeh Tamanna Hai Dil Jo Apna Hai, Usko Mil Jao Tum .... 
Ab Na Khayalon Mein, Na Sawalon Mein, Bas Baahon Mein Aao Tum.." 
Wow!

P.S 3: Some problems, seriously, don't end with teen-age...as speculated...they only get
aggravated!!

P.S 4: Aanchal... last warning....stop falling in love with the guys I like..!! Kisiko toh mere liye chod...! Leave RK, IK and all others right now!

P.S 5: watch this movie: P.S. I Love You.... it's a nice movie..! And also Top Gun... Tom Cruise... 22 years back... that too in an unifrom..!! Couldn't get hotter!

P.S 6: Just wanted to match Delhi-6... !! Sorry...lame effort at cracking a joke!

Kuttsguru said...

A gem of an article from a person who has seen it all :)..well she may be the next PAULO COELHO in the making..OR maybe PRINCESS COELHO..watsay nupur

Nupur said...

@ Kutty: That reminds me I have to start reading Paulo Coelho!

ankita said...

hahah...i can completely understnd ur feelings nupur...dun worry dear...tum akele nahi ho ! tum tumhare saath hai!! :P lolzzz

Nupur said...

@ Manalee: The question is who'll employ me..!!

6 years...!!No chance!! Arey yaar Gujju dames have to get married by 24-25!!! I know its creepy!

Nupur said...

@ Ankita: It always feels good when you have other people drowning with you! Welcome to the club buddy!

ankit said...

good artcile as always..........

do not GENERALIZE bout a guy's ego.....coz i feel u hvnt met all types of guys.....

if u caught da song 4m EMI so late, den i didnt xpect dat 4m nupur(read: always an ear 4 gud music)

i especially liked da part whr u hv mentioned a guy's probs after marriage.....u mentioned only a wife...wht bout da kids dat follow??????? for a guy who still hasnt bcome cmpltely mature and acts childish most of da times....hw wud it feel 2 bcome a father n c ur own child n hv all da responsibility of bringing him/her up in da best possible way....

one of major reasons why v guys hv 2 struggle so hard is coz of gals like u who feel dey hv already struggled enough in life n nw it's time 2 relax n njy!!!!!(take it with a pinch of salt..DO NOT take dis seriously...was just kiddin)

Nupur said...

@ Ankit: Well, I heard that song when it had come out...never really got the time to mention about it! I'm a sucker for emo-romantic songs...no song misses my ears!!

About a guy's ego...well... It's HUUUGGGEEEE. But definitely the population sample is less...I also know of guys who don't have that much of an ego....or atleast they know when to show it...and when to let it go...!

The observation was Aanchal's... so I will not take undue credit! I have a friend... who's having a second baby...she told me that the minute she had her first...she saw her hubby turn from a kid to a father...she said he matured that very minute...guess that's what a kid does to you!

and BTW, we definitely have struggled a lot!! To know more of it, read my 25 reasons to be a guy wala post...! Kidding yaar...sabne life main bahut dekha hain!

Rahul said...

Ya Nupur even after being a guy I understand u girl's feelings, atleast I believe what it feels to get married so early in 20's. On the other hand I agree with Ankit on the part that Not all the boys have huge ego or as u said "...atleast they know when to show it...and when to let it go...!"

That was a really nice observation & nice article too..I was wondering, though it was lengthy I stick to that till end & read completely.

Nupur said...

@ Rahul: Glad you liked it!

Rahul said...

Hey I just linked you to my blog... By the way Nupur you write nice articles then I'm wondering why don't you commercialize ur blog. Try google Adsense...

Nupur said...

@ Rahul: Google keeps rejecting my form!!!

Rahul said...

You mean You've submitted ur blog to "google.inc" but somehow they are not approving ur site...??? Ok let me see if I can help u in that.

Nupur said...

@ Rahul: No its some adsense acc.... its saying login not valid or sumthn!

Rahul said...

Ya tht's correct Nupur... Even I'm also a Adsense user & it uses same id/passwd as that of ur gmail/orkut account. But still have u reported this problem to Google support? I'm very sure once u resolve this na then u r gonna make decent money out of it with ur writing skills :-)

Nupur said...

@ Rahul: Be sure you stack yourself with sleeping pills after reading the posts....! You might need them.... or wait.... my posts are enuf for that!!

Anyways, yeah i kinda hate them...because they know maths... and they get marks more than me in mba exams and that leaves me stranded...!!

Nupur said...

@ Arshat: No, I've jettisoned my plans of learning taekwondo.... my punches don't hurt even a mosquito what and how will i hurt a whole big human being?!?

Aanchal might just kill you for the prophecy!! But then if she has a girl, jersey no 11 will be my son's!! yeaaahhhh!! Good good...keep predicting!! I like your predections!!
