Stirred Life - 2

“Home Sweet Home”!! The doormat welcomed me. As I hit the doorbell “Om Namah Shivaya”, I heard it groan.

“Look at you, how sober, don’t you eat there?” mom almost yelled, opening the door.

“I am tired ma; let me sleep for a while. We shall talk later”, I retired to bed. The softness of my favorite pillow helped me get that cadaver sleep that which I hadn’t had for ages.

“She is Radhika, working in IBM as ML” dad passed me a snap. She looked cute, but didn’t have that charm I always looked in girls. “We have finalized 3 alliances, all you need to do is pick one of them and rest will be taken care” amma commanded.

The whole motive of coming home was to taste the slurpy rasam amma makes, chat with old colony friends and of course forget that witch at work with whom I am dealing with. The scene somehow changed completely. Every time family spoke about me getting hooked up I would make reasons, genuine ones actually to put it off. Today it was different; I really wanted to check those photos. I guess it was time to get committed. May be that would help me recover with all the stress. I wanted a woman who would make “behind every successful man there is a women” quote come to life.

“Where are the other pics?” I asked.

I could see the excitement in my parent’s eyes. They would never dream that I would come forward for the cause. The “3 knot” cause.

“Look at this girl, She is Anu Pallavi” papa showed me the next pic.

“Anu Pallavi” I already liked the name.

The smile of the lady made me forget all the stress I was going through. “It’s her!! Your dream girl” my heart started talks.

Going by the lovely smile and the name, “what does she do” I enquired.

“We will have to ask Mohan. He is the one who gave the pics to us”, mom picked up the phone and called Mohan uncle.

“It would be great if I could meet her once and then I can tell you about my decision. I am going out. We shall talk once am back” I left home.

Aha - whose experience is this? Wondering if there is something similar the other way round. :P
