For those who don’t know
Kum – Kumari (Spinster)
Smt – Shrimathi (Married)
Athe – Mother in Law
Mava - Father in Law
I know every woman will undergo this once in her life time, but I felt this is worth documenting and letting you know how I felt when I began my transition of Kum Ramya to Smt Ramya…
Here is a small comparison of a typical day…
Before: oh! Its still 6 o clock, I can sleep till 7 and rush to take bath
Now: Ohhhhhh no! its 6 already I need to finish cooking!
Before: Ammaaaaaaaaaa Coffee (shouting loudly being in bed)
Now: Athe, shall I prepare coffee
Before: Amma-> “Ramya go take bath do pooja” (at my previous Early morning 10 o clock)
Now: Athe, I have lit lamp and done with my prayer (at my current Early morning)
Before: Ammaaaa Please don’t ask me to keep Bindi when I am wearing Jeans it wont suite
Now: Athe, I like Saree, chudi and even if it is Jeans we can still keep bindi
Before: To Appa-> Appa get me dairy milk, when u are coming back
Now: Bye Mava.
Before:To Amma, Appa “y you keep talking about others, y do u want to bother about them”
Now: To Athe Mava “Oh is it, very bad, very nice”
Before: Appa Please I cant see such serials Change the channel or give the remote(Snatch)
Now: Silently sit in front of TV with every one
One Major Shock was:
I put my hand besides in my bed and I found someone sleeping beside I was about to shout that first morning and then realized its my Hubby and I am no more single!
I can say thousand things like this in a day, There is for sure a very huge transition from being Kum to Smt, I am not saying that this is very tough or complicated, its just about that sudden maturity that we get when we are surrounded with our very own family (strangers but not really) from the day we are married.
Now its been quite few days slowly reluctantly I got adjusted to this new place and became part of it but I still wonder when I just remember my good old days…
Was I the one who used to be like that?
