Rumour has it all
I have gaps; you have gaps let’s fill each other’s gaps - This is what my brother and I found while searching for inspirational quotes to put in the marriage invite. Needless to say we spend the next ten minutes laughing like mad. My younger brother’s marriage is due in 6 weeks and I have been running around like a scorpion bitten mad monkey.
almost bankrupt). As part of the 3 day ceremony, we are suppose to gift new clothes to our relatives, arrange transportation (if the venue is out of town) and also feed them with DUE RESPECT- All three days!
DUE RESPECT has to be 200%. One of my aunts did not tell us her kid’s dress size, because she felt we should take her for shopping. After several irritating conversations over phone (which made my mom almost to tears), I had to go down to their home with 3 different sizes of pants and several t-shirts for her kid, just to make her happy.
Something that really cheered me up before few days.Never in my life had I imagined to shop 45 sarees, 28 shirts and several children wears, and all at one shot! I am no shopaholic, it’s what we do in Indian marriages (where groom family goes into debt and bride’s goes

DUE RESPECT (read kiss AS$) with some load of smart talking and bows. It’s not something I like to do, but it’s really important to save my family from bad mouths during the marriage. Talking of which, a rumour among my relatives is that I am married to Chinese girl and running a secret family in Singapore.

A priest's secret Identity, one of the cheer up, keep it cool sessionsMy Parents are going through lots of pressure (read b1tc@y relatives) these days and I have to constantly find ways to keep them cool. My mom seems to be going through some hormonal problems; she gets very emotional and cries over silly issues. I can handle a DOA career or kiss A@$ relatives but this bothers me much. And also my hair, I badly need a haircut- gosh I hate finding a new hair dresser.
Our sweet little familyToday we got rid of 88 kgs of old books, several clothes, hundreds of CDs, vessels and numerous other stuffs. Some we donated to our maid and some we sold. (In India we can sell used books/clothes/vessels and get money in return for each kilogram) We made 300rs (less than 8 USD) out of it. It’s not a bargain but our need is to revamp and clear some space in the house. Although I wish it could have been a bunch of my relatives rather than my college books. And I bet every penny in return would be a mega profit. In a way I am thankful to all these issues, they keep me alive and becomes something to fight about. Happy holidays to you all!
