(Disclaimer: ***Pun intended *** should I be telling this? :P all my posts are anyways pun intended :P !!!)
I know you must be thinking that Ramya has gone complete nuts! But friends what if I say end of the post you will completely agree with me as at some point or the other every one of you (if you are an Indian, married and Male or Female) then trust me would have undergone this labor pain!!! Surprised?
Here u go, this post is all about how a married couple is easily attacked in front of everyone by questions like “So when is the good news coming?” “So when are you promoting us?” “I got a dream of u telling me about good news, so anything up that you want to share it with us?”
Surprisingly all these different words and different questions only mean “When are you producing offspring?” or to be more bad “You are anyways gaming legally now, when do you plan to produce some output of the game”
Now I see every one of you in agreement with me J? … Last few days such questions are raining on me and so it is more interesting to share with you all and get your insight on it … (actually the real intent is when you comment on this, I get a sadistic satisfaction that there are many like me who have suffered or suffering due to such questions)
Well, you will surely find my frustration or rant justified when you know the questions that are showered on me over last few years, and surprisingly these questions also varies with time.
- First year into marriage and on first anniversary: “So anything new ?”, “so when is little one coming”, “you have put on so anything good”( :P well this questions is double stab!) , First anniversary you get less congratulations but be sure to get more comment and questions on when is the little one coming!!!!
- Second year into marriage: Doubt is building up furiously … “So u guys seem like planning and postponing baby”, “I think Its already 2 years you are married nooooo,” no question doesn’t end here It continues and ends with random aunt hissing in my ear as “Did u visit doctor?” at this point I feel like peeling my ear out and giving it to her !!!
- Third year and from then on: You will start hating to attend any social gathering cause everybody there makes u feel like one sloth bear lagging behind in race whereas every other aunt and uncle has news to tell about their son or daughter who has conceived and delivered within a year (worth a noble price :P) and almost everybody will have lot more random questions, some have gone to the extent like “are you both not interested?”, “I think you should pray to this Swamiji, My daughter conceived in just a month!!!” (I wonder what swamiji does :P), Final one to conclude my rant is about the solution offered by some great aunt “You should consult a Sex Therapist!”
PERIOD!!!! Just cant say anything more, doesn't this hurt more than Labor pain :P???
But then this is just my silent rant, even after all these Questions, Solutions and suggestions my reply would be a smile and a nod!!!
