We all have a list of to-dos in life, our bucket lists, our priorities. Making your parents happy is rarely on the list – for most of us. Let me share my story with you. Almost 15 years back I stepped out of my cozy family environment into a professional world. I then thought- my love for my family shall never wane. I will keep on loving & caring for them; khuch bhi ho jaaye chahe!
Very few Love stories in this ‘FB generation’ grow old. The infant mortality rate of love stories is the highest these days. People are confusing ‘Relationships’ with ‘Pre-Paid re-charge cards’. Unfortunately — ‘love’ these days serves the purpose of an exterior emulsion paint: ‘Baahar kee deewar badhiya — andar seelan & deemak’ etc. And the question they ask is -“Bhaiya yeh deewaar TIKTI kyun nahi hai?” In such situations, sometimes when seriousness doesn’t work, humor does. This is my attempt at humorous and funny reasons to move on from a relationship – when you know it has run it’s course. It delves into the unmistakable signs that the end is near, and ways to move on happily. Dig in!
You may ask, what makes me qualified to say I’m going to give you the best relationship advice ever! And you would be right too. But I have my share of trysts with the ladies and I have also been married for the last 11 years. Good experience no? 🙂
Asha Bhonsle & Parveen Babi sang it right -way back in 1982:-
Jawaani jaan-e-man haseen dilruba
Milein do dil jawaan nisaar ho gaya
Shikaari khud yahaan shikaar ho gaya
Yeh kya sitam huwa
Yeh kya zulam huwa
Yeh kya ghazab huwa
Yeh kaise kab huwa
Na jaanoon main na jaane woh, AAha…
(Repeat this AAha.. in your mind ; with a painful sound emerging from your very lower abdomen .
The answer to your questions about ‘dealing with people in your life’ lies in your own emotional Competence while handling people :-
I see most people trying to over do things to:
– Get liked
– Impress people &
– Trying to be a hero / heroine.
There is no dearth of funny matrimonial ads in India. Any parent / eligible bachelor / spinster who has been wracking their brains looking for suitable ‘rishtas’ know that some people are just ‘too much’! While travelling to Mumbai for an event in 2003 as a Motivational Speaker; I found this fun article on a piece of newspaper- which was placed below my Vada-Paav. I am happy I could save the paper and share the ad with you! This matrimonial ad is surely going to tickle your funny bone. Read to get married to His Highness? 🙂
HOW WOULD A MUMBAI TAPORI GIVE AN ADVERTISEMENT IN A MATRIMONIAL COLUMN FOR A SUITABLE GIRL.
