Views And Opinions

Having a view or opinion about certain things isn't wrong until you keep it within. If you have an opinion about something and you are confident that it's correct then why not share it loud? This section covers my views and opinions. I often get judged as a bold Indian girl making opinions and shouting hard against odds. Ahh... doesn't matter! I know how to balance between making an opinion and a rude remark. Trust me! If I want to be rude I will not hide it behind the opinionistic blog. ;)

against boycotting aamir khan movies

Many spoke against Aamir Khan’s comment on intolerance. Many of us wished for boycotting Aamir Khan and his upcoming movies too. Hashtags like #BoycottPK were rolling on social media after this controversy. And guess what? I too found the statement made by the finest actor in the industry, shocking. This wasn’t something that I expected. But…

Today’s daily prompt is the word ‘culture’. Though I wrote this blog almost a year ago, I believe this is the most appropriate one for today’s ‘daily prompt’. It shows some unnoticed loopholes of Indian culture. We really need to fix them to make it great in the true sense. Aakuti: What’s up? Prisha: Nothing…

Hello everyone! This is Vaidus and welcome to my world, the ‘Vaidu’s World’. So, I am back with a new topic and it’s called ‘Love Marriage With The Permission Of A Beep’. Sounds weird? Ahhh….I love publishing weird titles….. Hehehahahaha…. That’s my small little world, The Weird World. 😛

Hey! After all, we live in a weird ‘Society’ which speaks its own language of hypocrisy. This very first statement might disinterest a couple of my listeners and readers. You must be thinking that it is just another blog, cursing the society. Am I right? Well, you know what? You are absolutely right!

This time the topic is ‘Love Marriage After An Ideal Age’ or let us take it this way, ‘Love Marriage With The Permission Of A Beep’. Yes! You heard it right! I spoke ‘With The Permission Of A Beep’. Confused with the ‘Beep’ word? I’ll explain you.

Most of the time we talk about ‘Love Cum Arrange Marriage’. In a situation of ‘Love Cum Arrange Marriage’, parents happily accept the bride or the groom and arrange it for their kids. However, in a situation of ‘Love Marriage After An Ideal Age’, it is an increasing age of their child which pushes them to allow their kids to find a soulmate for them.

Now, the very important question is what is an ideal age by which one can have an arrange marriage? Well! It’s difficult to define. It again varies, depending on various circumstances you know.

We are always proud of being a citizen of India, which inherits a lot of communities, religions, castes, languages, cultures, etc. But do we ever realize that we discriminate ourselves by saying that we are proud of it? All riots and communal issues arises from this very discrimination and ‘Love Marriage After An Ideal Age’ is also a result of it.

There are a plenty of religions, castes, and communities prevailing in our country. Every community made its own rules and traditions to follow. All these traditions and rules are followed in every small event of our life. As marriage is an important event of a person’s life, so in our country we celebrate it like a festival.

Look! Following these traditions aren’t bad. In fact, they help us to unite and celebrate it to the fullest. But there are a few harsh assumptions attached to them. Let me introduce you to a few of them.

First Assumption

Boys of our family can have a love marriage as the bride is coming in our family so she is the one who is changing her surname. While the girls of our family shouldn’t marry someone out of our cast as we don’t want her to change her caste after marriage. Isn’t it biased? 😡

Second Assumption

A girl or a boy should look perfect on the first meet, arranged by their parents for marriage. After all depending on it, they will be judged by each other and each other’s family. Wowwww…. It’s showtime! 😛

Third Assumption

It is fine if a girl earns less than a boy or a groom, however, it is not at all bearable if a groom earns lesser than a bride. It results into straight rejections. Ooppssss…. Girls, don’t earn else you won’t be able to get a good match! 🙁

Fourth Assumption

Speak less when you are meeting a boy/girl and his/her family for the first time for arranged marriages. Shhh… Zip your lips and just a sweet ‘agyakari’ smile. 🙂

Fifth Assumption

And last but not the least, girls are allowed to marry a guy of her own choice only if her ideal age for marriage crosses. It is also important to note that an ideal age depend on family relatives, friends and society. I am 26 year old kiddo… I can’t make a right decision for my life…. Awwww….! 🙁

All the first four assumptions mentioned by me here, are very common. A lot of people spoke about it in past. But my personal concern is related to the last assumption mentioned here.

When a girl wish to marry someone of her choice then she can’t because her parents will find a better match for her. But when she crosses a so-called ‘ideal age’ then she is suddenly mature enough to find a suitable match for her. Isn’t  it strange? Just a couple of years give her the magical power to choose the right man for her. Awesome, isn’t it?

Most of you must be thinking that it is again a feminist’s blog. No, Dude! I am equally sorry for guys as well. Ironically, many guys also face similar situation in our country. So, whom should I blame? Girls? Boys? Parents? Or Society?

Hey! I have a better option. Hypocrite family relatives, friends and people around you. They are the devils of your life. I won’t say all of them sail on the same boat but many of them do. So, if you want to live happily then all you have to do is keep your family away from them. Well! I understand that in most cases it is difficult but if you wanna live a happy and a peaceful life, you have to do this for you.

After all, you shouldn’t look or hang-out with someone just because you are crossing an ideal age, set by some beep beep beepsss….. I guess you understood the ‘beep’ word now. If you haven’t then just say Holaaaa, to your sweet hypocrite darlings living around you and you’ll get it.

It’s your choice. Don’t allow others to decide for you because they won’t stand by you in difficult times. It’s your family and real good friends who will be with you. So, save them from such ‘Beep- beep’ people. Got the ‘beep’ now? 😀 😛

Cheers! 🙂
