A New Engagement

18 Mar

Last weekend the happy news in circulation was of my Wife’s cousin brother getting engaged and soon to be married.

Although the news trickled in from a different source,we had been awaiting it for some time as to being aware of the many thwarted attempts he was going through previously.Finally,we managed to corner him on the instant messenger one evening and he no longer was the Man who belonged to the Family.

There was an apparent energy in his words and it was almost every alternate message he typed in that we felt him getting dreamy.Phrases like “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”,”we did not seem like strangers” sprouted from nowhere and I am certain all of us who have experienced it will  relate to instantly.

His description of the all so sudden happenings of the engagement and the day after it couldn’t hide the fact that he was waiting for the moment for his life and then the sharing of pictures of the “would-be” was sheer energy at display.

The reason for me to pen down the above scenario follows hereafter,but firstly an important disclaimer

All characters are fictional. Any use of real names is coincidental and purely unintentional. Any similarities to actual persons is also pure coincidence, and not the intent. If one of the stories happens to become fact, it should be considered a lucky guess, and not as a result of any inside information.There are seven billion of us on the planet.

All of us who have been married know the euphoria of these initial days.I know my elder brother’s agree with me on this wholeheartedly.The question is “How do we bless this Man,our very own gender,who is closely related to our better halves and what are the words that would encourage him as well as ground him to the realities of the battle ahead?”

I found no other way to explain him how to be Happily Married Everafter but this short story that says it all(hope he gets it before it is too late )..    🙂

Once upon a time a married couple celebrated their 25th marriage anniversary. They had become famous in the city for not having a single conflict in their period of 25 years. Local newspaper editors had gathered at the occasion to find out the secret of their well known "happy going marriage".

Editor: "Sir. It's amazingly unbelievable. How did you make this possible? "

Husband recalling his old honeymoon days said: " We had been to Shimla for honeymoon after marriage. Having selected the horse riding finally, we both started the ride on different horses.

My horse was pretty okay but the horse on which my wife was riding seemed to be a crazy one. On the way ahead, that horse jumped suddenly, making my wife topple over.

Recovering her position from the ground, she patted the horse's back and said "This is your first time".

She again climbed the horse and continued with the ride. After a while, it happened again. This time she again kept calm and said "This is your second time" and continued.

When the horse dropped her third time, she silently took out the revolver from the purse and shot the horse dead!!

I shouted at my wife: "What did you do you psycho. You killed the poor animal.

Are you crazy?"

She gave a silent look and said: "This is your first time!!!"."

Husband: "That's it. We are happy ever after."
