Happy Ugadiiiiii

It is new year for kannadigas and if I am not wrong for Andhraites too... As a kid I was always enthralled prior to almost all the festivals be it Sankranti, Ugadi, Deepavali or Ganesha-Gauri fest.Firstly because there used to b a holiday and it was all fun to go for shopping with mum-dad to buy clothes (totally inappropriate for the occasions..lol). I strangely enjoyed (I still do unfortunately nobody believes:-( ) joining my mum in cleaning up stuff or in preparing some sweet dishes which require heavy labour (holige, yallu-bella,etc). The best part of the fest day would be "meeting-the-bhai bhandus" sessions! My dad s a firm believer in networking so he tried his best to enrich our social lives during those occasions( he has given up now:-))He always says you have to be amidst all kinda people (good, bad and humans) to know urself better. It made no sense to me then dad, but now I can't agree with you more on that.

To be honest, I used to enjoy this milna julna with some of my relatives and lots of family friends till I finished my ninth class.I still remember people preparing me mentally for my board exams by giving horror trailors so I decided to meet them all only after my tenth.Luckily I fetched some decent marks but the interface level got worse with my promotion. It was my second year of pre-university and it was kinda mandatory for me to get into some reputed engineering or medical college for my parents to escape all the sarcasm. Luckily sailed through that too(though had to face many twists, turns and total suspense) How I cursed having so many engineers and doctors to be of my age in my family and friends!

Then it was time to score distinction come what may; else you are next to the non biodegradable waste found in the city corporation pit (actually sounds better in kannada-"CARporation kasad thotti" =)) ) I managed to get that too! It was like constant exposure to unwanted radiations causing irritations in head and throat. May be that s the reason I treasure my post graduation days as I was away from all of this ( I pity my parents though who had to take all the torture). Though I hardly cared, I had to put on pretence because my mum thought if I am rude I won't get marriage offers:|

YES! That is the next stage of irritation....I just finished my post graduation (Thanks to my dad for not getting inspired by almost all the fellowdads who were marrying off their born-to-be-bride daughters soon after they learnt to drape a saree...in that case dad u ve to wait for quite some time as i still dunno...hehe...and my condolences to those who were guilt-tripped)

Very few people are interested to know about my job profile or my company..All they want to know is when my dad is ready to shell out most of his hard earned money on feeding thousands of them that I'll be introduced to me on my marriage!

Hilariously if my parents don't say "we are searching", there is something fishy in our vegetarian kitchen...lol..
Not three but tons of cheers to all those sane people who experience joy when they see yet-to-marry ambitious gals chasing their dreams!

Considering the feminist point of view, which supports equality of men and women in all aspects I ve something to say..." I have just crossed the minimum age required for a guy to marry!"Phew!!!!

For all the marriage crazy people, I too am a die-hard fan of movies like "Father of the bride I & II, Big fat Greek wedding, etc"; I too have grown up imagining (alike most of the south gals) walking in a Kanchivaram saree with little gold(a slight contradiction=)) towards the man of my dreams and reality before those thousands who are dying to decide my worth by looking at the gold or my looks!:D...( the last phrase s what we call "dreams struck with reality")

It is just that for all practical reasons I want to have more of my spinster's share!!!(spinster-A person whose occupation is spinning according to the online dictionary..lolololol)

For all the people who are comparing this post to some Hindi movie whose title has no/little connection with the content, I am back to remind you the title- "HAPPY UGADI"-May all your personal and professional wishes come true at the right time=)=)
