Peak hourShweta:

‘Just couldn’t find the green earrings that are an exact match for this salwar suit. Must find a better way to store my daily stuff. I wonder whether he notices? Whether I’m wearing green or blue with this green dress? I wonder whether he’ll even be there…’

Sandeep:

‘Almost killed myself getting into that runaway bus the last time. Must start at least five minutes earlier each morning. Does she always need to be there at the same time? Or is she getting used to seeing me on the same bus…’

‘I’m Married, So What?’

Dance pubMiddle-aged Divya was not surprised to find her neighbour’s son, twenty something Neeraj, in the night club on Saturday night. After all, this was the place where she and her contemporaries were a little out of place – where teeny boppers and Gen Next couples were usually to be found dancing the night away.

But while her initial greeting for Neeraj was full of neighbourly warmth, she was dismayed to find him getting overly friendly over the next hour as she tried to nurse a drink at the crowded bar. When he tried to get a little too close, urging her to dance, she decided to be the strict old ‘aunty’, and told him, “Nothing doing. Get a partner your own age.”

Inferior complexRavina is a podgy, happy and bubbly twenty-three year old just married to her boyfriend of many years Pravin. Everything was going on fine till one afternoon they were joined by Jessy for lunch.

Jessy was the exact opposite of Ravina. A six feet tall ravishing beauty. After lunch the trio went to the shopping mall. And this is where the first seeds of inferiority complex were sown in Ravina. While Ravina could not find the double xxl sizes of the dresses she liked, Jessy had no trouble walking in and out of the trial room in those teeny weeny, trendy clothes and winning a few admiring glances from Pravin.

Matrimonial investigationSo much is changing in the world, and yet, so much remains the same. Lifestyles of the present generation may bear little resemblance to their ancestors’ lives. Yet, marriages are still arranged, families still look forward to inviting a new member into their midst about whose health, pedigree and character they have satisfied themselves. At least in India, we cannot claim to be a society where marriage is decided solely by the choice and personal preferences of the two people involved.

Which makes the investigation before marriage a very crucial matter.

Unrealistic ExpectationsWe grow up with many examples of happy and unhappy marriages in our family and community. As we move towards adolescence and adulthood, fed by images from the media and from the world around us, we develop a good idea of the kind of partner we are looking for in our own lives.

The problem is, sometimes we grow up with too good an idea.

“I think today in India, women are asking more from their partners, because, for the first time, they are qualified, employed, with high self-esteem, and exposed to what’s happening all around the world,” says Aparajita, an entrepreneur running her own jewellery designing business. “Obviously, with such ideas, they don’t want to settle for second best. What’s the point of getting married to a guy who has the same ideas of marriage and women that your grandfather had? The new international branding of men as ‘caring’ and women as ‘assertive’ and ‘equal’ is now applying to India too.”
