A marriage in my family

Mom calls up when I was at work:
Amma: Helloooooooooooo (thankfully my colleague beside me did not answer her back)
Me: hmmm amma tell me, talk in low tone I can hear you.
Amma: Arrey  I cant hear you yaaaaaaaaaaaa (Not Again!!! Now I decided to walk out of my cubicle)
Me: ok I will come out of my cubicle  

Amma : ya ya you come out, I have to tell you something important!!!
 ( I thought one of these will be her important discussion as I walked out of my cubicle.
1.  It must be someone from her not so good friends who would have met her in some temple and would have done lot of attitude according to my Amma.
2. Or may be some girl has escaped from home in my native.
3. Or she wants to go out with her yoga class friends and I have to convince my Appa)

Me: Amma tell me now what is it.
Amma: You know what!!! Your cousin, she may be getting married!!!
Me: Amma what so big thing in that, she is of right age and she has to get married this year anyways.
Amma: No No she should have some responsibility, not like this !!!
Me:  oh what happened now!

Amma: Alla!!! Can’t she see you and learn something?  How can she do this??? Or at least see all of us we all her aunts and uncles none of us have done this and how can she even think of getting married like this?

Me: Amma pls be open minded. It’s ok; it’s her choice and interest.

Amma: How to believe that guy will be good? I am not ok with it! Arrey, why don’t you understand this! Her parents, me and your appa, Your both mavas and also you for that sakes  are not married like this and today see are you not happy?  Then why she has to do this!!!What example is she setting for her younger sisters???
Papa my sister I don’t know how she is handling this

Me: Amma pls don’t talk like this lets see, tell me what exactly is your doubt 

Amma: Ramya be serious this is somebody’s life! what is this matching horoscope it seems, Bride has to take coffee, serve with all grace to Guy's family and and then again family meeting it for a formal discussion! Everything is fixed in a month or two! what’s all this haan!!! Why of all the things she should be ok with Arranged marriage cant she fall in love with someone!!! 

Me: Amma you better talk to her, I have hell lot of work. And Please be informed arranged marriage is very good its ok! and the style what ever you have mentioned is very old now its changed!

Amma: Iyyo you are always in hurry and not serious at all, you should know none of us have experience in all these, not even your grandparents!!!

This is what happens in my family if someone dares to opt for Arranged Marriage!!!

Very educative TV shows

At times we will have to explain in great details about concept which seems simple but has a huge impact on society, so one of such very critical debate which happened with my dear Blogger friend Sujatha leads me to write this post.

Before going ahead I want to sincerely thank my dear Sis who provided complete assistance, guidance, valuable time and knowledge sharing on the topics we are discussing today.

OKOK I am coming to the topic finally!

Not sure what makes people call some very knowledgeable Television series as CRAP, ABSURD, UNREALISTIC, MEANINGLESS, ETC ETC. But truly after great amount of research and deep dive discussions, I am wHole heartedly accepting that these shows are very important for everyone in the family and are also very educative. Given a chance I would ask all TV channels to stop broadcasting NEWS, SPORTS, QUIZES, Travel Shows for shows like Rakhi Ki Swayamwar, Rakhi Ki Adalat, Stuntmania, Roadies, Footloose, Datetrap, Superstud, Splitsvilla.

I will just go through few of these shows to explain you how important these shows are. (Mind you, explanation of just 1 or 2 is more than enough for you to accept how great these shows really are!!!) So here you go!

Rakhi Ki Swayamwar:

Come on guys! you want to teach your kids about Mythology and tell me how many of you have really explained Swayamwar concept in Mythology. Almost in every story of God, Goddess, Suras, Asuras there is swayamwar and so every princess was supposed to see some 20-30 Neighboring kings and decide on one (when all men are from mars!) and when you tell this to kid, it will immediately slap you with a question asking ‘then why did you marry daddy and not neighbor Uncle because he is so sweet and never asks me to study!!!’ So I would say a practical example helps kids understand this very difficult concept of choosing one man out of similar ones, very easily. Now that’s what our Rakhi did and also she is so kind and generous that she may be ready for explaining this again with Rakhi Ki Swayamwar Part 2 to make people understand this critical concept and help improve Mythological Understanding!! I truly respect the teacher in Rakhi Sawant.

So finally you are accepting right? Now standup say

Happy Teacher’s Day Meees Rakhi!

Repeat it 5 times!


Ok don’t just be completely mesmerized with Rakhi Sawant we have a male competitor also. And he is our very own Ashmit Patel, Oh u dint get who he is…. I should really educate you guys!!!

Thaaaat Inteha movie… umm hmmm u dint remember, Thaat Kudiyon Ka Hai Zamana u Still don’t get him! Fight Club – Members Only(I like the name, wonder is they knew no one else will even turn towards the poster also!!!) Still Nooo????

Ok MURDER!!! Ahaaaaaaa naughty, now u get it! Arrey no no its not MS I am talking about. it’s about the guy who is supposed to be hero of the film but only sits in jail from starting till ending of movie and rest of the THINGS taken care by our Imran Hashmi, Hmmm correct correct the other Guy! That’s our Male competitor

So our Guy Ashmit the handsome hunk! Is the one teaching young boys how to flirt and is supposed to be FLIRT GURU, wow how on earth such beautiful concept was not visualized all these yrs, My complete teenage is gone now I get such shows what a loss…

Continuing with this, I have heard from some very reliable source that for a female frog to find its potential mate the selection process is to hear to all male frogs croaking and the loudest of all gets the female frog, to understand this natures wonder and mystery with Homosapiens as example all you have to do is watch our very own Flirt Guru Ashmit Patel croaking on Superstud isn’t it how educative? Do you ever get such wonderful examples? See this is the reason I say you all people complaining should see these shows.

Now I know you all are waiting to be Blessed by Flirt Guru Ashmit Patel ( Papa had he attained this much earlier, he would be performing better THINGS in Murder!!! Hmmm )

So do I have to explain anymore???

Now do you accept totally that these are very educative???


Uffff Mission Accomplished! ;)
