Working womanAny matrimonial column in India makes mention of the ‘homely’ girl. This should be the most desirable community, if one were to go by the column square inches devoted to them in many newspapers. So what do people mean when they say ‘homely’?

“Most of all, families in India dread getting a daughter-in-law who will break up the home, or at least, the pattern in which the family has gone on before she got married and entered as a daughter-in-law.

Fusion WeddingThe age old story of girl meets boy. Falls in love. And there is the grand finale, that is the wedding remains the same. But the twist in the kahani is that today our world is expanding at an unbelievable pace. So, people are moving out of their hometowns in search of better life opportunities. This in turn is dissolving the barriers of state, community and religion. Today mixed marriages are fast becoming a norm rather than stray occurrences.

Ice-cream parlourThe first time he saw her after she had walked out of his life was at Nirula’s, a popular ice-cream parlour in Delhi. He had recognized her even at that distance, noticed her long hair wound into a bun at the nape of her neck. Suddenly she turned and saw him. The look on her face told him she didn’t know what to do.
