Pre and Post Wedding


Vikky was blushing while he scribbled something in his diary. It was way past midnight. After sometime, he closed the diary, turned the lights off and tried to get some sleep.  

Vikky is my best friend who is going to get married in few days. Couple of days ago, I was at a coffee shop with him. I have never seen him so happy and thrilled; I was surprised to see him in his new romantic avatar; the once-upon-a-time prankster Vikky has become a hard core Romeo! Over a steaming cup of cappuccino, he talked volumes about his girl.

However, looking at her photograph, I felt she looked more like a school teacher and hardly gave any signs of a Juliet :p :p

This girl apparently is supremely pampered at home and belongs to the category of ‘very good, no-nonsense girls’. And this only added to his concern and anxiety about post marriage days. He wondered, “Bloody hell, will I be able to live up to her expectations?! And why do girls' parents do this crap to make our lives miserable?"

Finally, the wedding day!

The 3 days long Tam-Bram wedding happened with much splendor and celebration. The bride and the groom were dressed up in the most exquisite outfits; the couple looked overjoyed - well set to embrace the life that lies ahead of them.

Blessed by near and dear relatives and friends, holding hands, the both of them entered his house. Flowers and well wishes showered on the two.

Suddenly amidst the crowd, Vikky found her missing. Crying while bidding good bye to parents on the day of the wedding is the trend. Oops, I mean... is very painful indeed! Any girl would shed tears. However, Vikky was prepared. He dashed into his room, opened the cupboard and grasped the surprise gift he secretly bought for her – an expensive diamond pendant tucked in a heart shaped box, beautifully wrapped in red velvet!

He went to all corners of the house looking for her.

However was shocked to find her in the least expected place - jasmine flowers drooping down her hair and gold bangles tinkling, she was washing clothes in the bathroom, in her kancheepuram saree!

Amazed and not able to hide his expression, Vikky asked her, “While the house is filled with guests, what are you doing here?” Casually she replied, “Give me just 5 more minutes please...what an eventful wedding it was - three days of changing clothes infinite times. If I don’t wash my under garments, I will run out of them!”     
 
With his mouth open wide and the diamond pendant hid inside his dothi, Vikky stood there staring at her, speechless!


P.S - Though an unexpected beginning, they lived happily ever after! J

Great post $$. Goes to show quite a few things - principal among them being the fact that pampered and spoilt do not necessarily go hand in hand!

Although I would want to point out one thing - the first few paras (Nik's entry in his diary) - no matter how romantic a guy is, he still wouldn't come up with *that*. Those words can only come from a girl :)

@g2 – thanks g2 :)

@ Rohan – hahaa… the W.M was existent; oh… good, she didn’t switch it on! Anyways, I shall confirm with Nik ;)

@ Abhilash – Nik has already read and so Nik’s girl. May be from next time, they would be extra careful while refreshing their memories while I’m around! :)

@ Preeth – Thanks Preeth!

@ Kiran – Thank You, Kiran!

U r right; I should not have coupled ‘pampered’ and ‘spoilt’! BTW, ahem ahem… looks like Kiran is a pampered boy! ;)

And… how can u be so unfair & cruel to the Salims and Shahjahans and Raj Malhotras in the world? They can go any extent when it comes to romance or writing love letters or hopping around trees! ;) ;) For further information, please contact Karan Johar :P

You succeed so well at the movie-style distraction... pointing towards east, and when I look there, you walk towards west.

You are never serious, are you? :)
