Happily Married !

OK.. so I was talking to my friend RJ the other day ... (now u may all think i have no one else to talk to :D ) , he's sweet n fun (u shud try talking to him.. in short, pakaa daalo usko :D ) , anywayz I had a fight wid my parents that day, and I was telling him about it, which led to him telling me I shouldn't be fighting wid them as one day I'll be leaving them (when I get married dat is), and then I would regret it. He also added my parents wud be happy if I get married, I never really thought of it that way, cuz the thought of marriage scares me .. (ya , more than spiders too!!!)

People have different perspectives and different reasons of getting married...
1. Most of the time, its parents who want their (grown-up) kids to have their own families and settle down in life .. also called as an "arranged marriage"

2. For some couples, marriage happens when they get to know each other, fall in love and decide they want to grow old together as well..

3. For some, it maybe the fear of being alone in the later halves of their lives..

4. And for the rest, its a license to have sex !! :D (True!!)

I would always ponder on what could be MY reason IFFFF I get married (mind u, dats a Big IF there!)
Going bottom to top--
As of now, I don't fear being alone in life .. as there are a million things I want to do for which even a lifetime wouldn't be enough.. I'll keep myself busy, no worries! :)
Secondly, I'm happy with just a driver's license ! :D
So the last two reasons are ruled out here.

Point no. 2 would be the only reason I would want to get married, but chances of that happening are negligible.. Being a FOSLA member (incase u haven't read my earlier posts, it stands for Failed One Sided Lovers Association :D ), falling in love is as difficult as solving Physics Equations !!!

Coming to point 1 , I never really understood the concept of an arranged marriage.It differs everywhere. Formerly (or still in some households), a girl, or a bride would be chosen by the photo that she sends out. I really dont understand how a guy decides whom to spend the rest of his life with just by looking at that photo. Isn't knowing the person more important people??Anyways, so after this photuu-shotuu selection, the couple then would tie the knot where actually, they'd get to see each other for real !! Now that's really ridiculous... I would be lucky in this case, since my photos turn out to be 10 times better than what I actually look like !! Mandap se hi bhaag jaaayega yedaa :D And what if , God forbid, this girl gets chickenpox, or smallpox, or any kind of "pox" dat makes u look all ugly .. would the guy (her husband then) stop loving her then?

Second scenario..
A tradition which 'modern' families follow ..
Guy meets girl, girl meets guy. Guy drinks chaai. He likes it. Boom! And they get married...!
(A nice concept for a tea advertisement by da way!)
This is done so that they meet each other atleast before marriage. I STILL don't get it. Is a day, or an hour enough to know someone and decide you want to grow old with this person?
THIS I told my mom. She told me the "getting-to-know" phase comes after the engagement is done. And what if, after this phase, I realise I don't like the guy after all ! What happens to the guy then? What happens to our parents' hopes? All good that can come out of this is relatives and neighbours can gossip to glory!

So... After a lot of thought, I decided.. Till the time I find those Physics Equations easier, I'm happily married - to my single status ! ;-)

Tagged !!!

Hey y'all .. I've been tagged by RJ to write this post..
Hope u lyk it,

I am a tea addict , wake me up in da middle of the nite and i'm game for tea !

I have a crush on Chandler from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. my ideal guy !! ;-)

I wish for many things.. but those are only wishes.. :(

I hate fake people, fake relationships..

I miss-ed the chinese bhel waala on my street, he's back again !! hurrraaayyy !! :) [He's 60+ by the way.. dun get any wrong ideas :D ]

I fear losing people.. also fear spiders ... they give me goosebumps.

I feel u're gonna get bored by the end of this..

I hear Madonna's planning to adopt a child from each country .. Angelina.. u've got competition :P

I smell like Farmasi (Deo)

I crave for chocolate fantasy, "Naturals" icecreams, 7'11 softies, Ginger tea :D

I search using Google. Ma virtual best friend ..!!

I wonder why donald duck never wears pants, yet wraps a towel round his waist just after he

I regret not having lived life to the fullest when I was supposed to... but hey, making up for it
now! ;-)

I love watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ,can watch 1000 re-runs of it without getting boreddd..!!

I ache not being able to sit in Iranis and while away time during collg :D

I care about people .. and their feelings.

I always plan for outings and ppl ditch me :(

I am not a very strong person , and I intend to change that.

I believe my smile can cure people.. atleast RJ thinks so !! :D

I dance terribly. It cant even be called as "dance" .. find it weird how people can move around
their bodies like that. Really shy when it comes to dancing.

I cry atleast twice a week , I'm very emotional. People called me Radubha (in place of Anubha)
when I was a kid. :D

I fight for the window seat in da bus !! :)

I don’t always get it though !! :(

I write a lot, used to write diaries (personal journals) in my early teens.. When I was in the 2nd grade, I had copied the whole EVS textbook onto my notebook just for
fun ! Needless to say, I topped in EVS that year :D

I win the first prize in "Typing Master" every year. :)

I lose in Sports.

I never took so long to think.. as much as I've thot on dis one!!!

I confuse myself a lotta times !!!

I listen to music , almost all genres except metal .. cuz dat doesnt classify as "music" for me.. its just noise !!

I can usually be found on Gtalk , I'm online most of da time, love to chat :D

I am scared of losing people, spiders .. haven't I answered dis before?

I need to be more emotionally strong.. physically too :P

I am happy dat I finished this !!!! :D ... well , on a serious note, happy about everything now.... :)

Sarad ki kahani, ek nadaan ki zubaani !

A successful IPL season and it was Rajasthan Royals(RR) all way along. Frankly, I underestimated RR big time. I wanted the Mumbai Indians to win, I wish them better luck next time. The IPL is over, RR wins the inaugaural IPL. Life's getting boring, so what next? Let's step one step backward and figure out how it all started. My version of the IPL.

Its called "Sarad ki kahani, ek nadaan ki zubaani!"

Sarad Paar: A top notch ex-politician, now a chairman of the IPL organising committee. He's the big one and he wants all the moolah!

Nimbupaani: Supposedly, one of the world's richest beings around. 6 family members and 600 servants live together!

Rukruk Khan: He's numero one in the movie circuit. He's got the charm, the 6-packs and K-K-Karan!

Tendlya: He's numero one in the cricket arena. He's got the injury, the advertisements and the nails to bite!

Plus supporting cast - thanks to all!

Sarad is all upset with Sabhish Kandra(Owner of a television channel) because he entered the cricket world and is getting all the money and fame. Sarad decides to earn some black moolah using his idea and sketches out a plan overnight. He decides to call the top people from page 3 circuit after his thought - "Chailaa, maala suru karaaycha hota aani hyaani kelaa! Kaahi tari karaylaa havaa, gheto mi henchi barobar aani kapil chi pan maarto! Mee IPL suru karto"
He needs initial funds to execute the whole idea and calls up the "fund-man" Nimbupaani.
Tring tring...

Sarad: He-lo, ho app sirji..hum-hein hein yaad rak-koko
Nimbupaani: Abe Sarad kabhi sudhrega, itnaa paisaa toh lutaa cricket se, muh ka operation nahi karvaaya ab tak, kanjus! Kya hua thik se muh kholke bol
Saarad: Woh chodo sir, paisa daalo, double karke detaa hu. You see double return in just 2 months sir!
Nimbupaani: Huh? Paise daalo double karegaa? Yeda samjhaa hai kya re. Saale, main idhar Chilaince mein baithe ande ubaal raha hoon?
Sarad: Sir, aap puri baat sunlo. IPL cha-alu karenge. Logon ko nangaa karenge, Rukruk Khan ko nachaayenge! Kaun-si te-am chahiy-e bolona??!!
Nimbupaani: Apna Tendlya chahiye mereko, bas team mein woh hua toh kaafi hai! Baaki semi-final aur finals apne ground mein hona chahiye!
Sarad: Thik hai, tikh hain sir, Mum-bai lelo aap
Nimbupaani: Haan, besttt! Anil bhi bahot udd raha hai aaj kal, mast jalegaa saala. 2 mahine mein 30crore ko 600crore maltab ek naya ghar!
Sarad : Ha-an, uss-kaa tu ten-shun mat le! (chailaa hyaala marathi yet naahi, malaa hindi yet naahi)
Nimbupaani: Tu apne muh ka kuch kar re, main jaa raha hu sone!!
Sarad : Haan sir, cheque bhej do aap. Bye.

So Nimbupaani decides to buy the Mumbai Indians, the city with the biggest corporates, big sponsors and ofcourse Tendlya!
Now, Sarad is nervous and calls Tendlya to update the story!
Tring tring...

Tendlya: Ailla..hello kon?
Sarad: Aga Anjali, Tendlya la phone de zaraa
Tendlya: Ailaa...Sarad kaka mi Tendlya-ach boltoy!! Team koni ghetli?
Sarad: nimbupaani ni!
Tendlya: Ailaa..changlaa zhaala..rakkam pakki karun taak tu..faayda zhaalaa pahije aaplaa!Sarad: Faayda hoyel re..tulaa kaay vaatla!! Fukat naahi baslo mi ithe, tu jaasta kaalji nako karus! Tuzaa naav asnaar team madhe mag tulaa aadhi injure sangoon amhi baaki players na paathvu! Tu aaram kar aani te RMF cha deal madhey maaza percentage...
Tendlya: Ailaa.. ho denaar denaar! Injury mastaa, chaalel-chaalel!
Sarad: Chal aata Rukrukla fone laavto
Tendlya: Ailaa.. Rukruk! Thik aahe, thevto aata!

Next up, Sarad Paar decides to call Rukruk Khan.
Tring tring...

Sarad: He-loKaran: Hello, you're speaking to Karan Johar in RRK's Mannat and...
Sarad: Abbe gud boy, coffee peelana kam kar aur RRK ko phone de saala apna hostgiri kab band karegaa kya maloom
Karan: *Sob* Aapko acche se baat karne nahi aati kya *sob* .......... RRK its for u!
RRK: Hello ?
Sarad: K-ya re, bhabie gh-ar pe nahi hai k-ya?
RRK: (background music playing - eeeehhhhhhh kantabehen) Kya hua bol sarad?
Sarad: Pai-saa kamaane-ka hai k-yaa ??
RRK: K-k-k-k-kaise???
Sarad: IPL chaalu karegaa .. ba-hot lut-egaa public ko..kya boltai tu?
SRK: Arre waah! Idea mast hai re!! Idhar meri bhi lagi padi hai, yeh Akshay bahot footage khaata hai aaj kal! Aur tune Akshay ko koi bhi function mein bulaya naa-toh yaad rakh. Mein King Khan hoon kuch bhi kar sakta hoon mere films promote hone chahiye aur mujhe naachne bhi milna chahiye udhar
Sarad: Demand bahot karne lag-aa hai tu a-aj kal!!! Thik h-ai..dekh-ta hoon main kya kar saktaaa hu ....kaunsi team legaa? Mukesh ne Mumbai le li hain
RRK: Havrat saala.. kitna kamaayega!! Kolkatta de mujhe, Dada bhi form mein hai aur udhar ka public bhi yedaa hai, sab uthke aatein hai match dekhneko
Sarad: Th-ik ha-i , Kolkatta te-raa..
RRK: Ek kaam kar na, Ugly Zhinta ko bhi pucchh - nahi toh mere pe shak aayega sabko ki despo hai publicity ke liye karke!
Sarad : Abe paagal hai kya, uske paas kya hai, uski toh abhi koi film bhi nahi a-ati! Kaam karta hu, Fajitabh ko fone lagaata hu??!!
RRK: Sharad faaltugiri nahi chahiye haa! Main idhar paise de dekar King Khan bann raha hu aur tu usko mere saath kyo bhid raha hai?? Budda khajayegaa poore stadium ko aur mereko limelight nahi milegaa. Tu Ugly Zhinta ko lagaa, bombay dyeing leke baithi hai woh ,Mess Nadia ko yedia banaa!
Sarad : Abe Mumbai Dyeing bol, woh "Aaj Kurkure" aake gaadi fodega tera, aaj kal mar raha hai woh bhi publicity ke liye!
RRK: Sach baat bolu kya re sarad - jab usne Fajitabh ka ghar foda naa, main aur Chori bahut khush hua maloom. Saala kuch bhi bol lekin budde mein baat hai
Sarad : Ha-ha-ha.. *cough* Chal fone laga-ata hu Ugly Zhinta ko ..
RRK : Haan chal bye. K-k-k-karan where did u go?? (background music playing - eeeehhhhhhh kantabehen)

So this way, RRK buys the Kolkatta Knight Riders .. and Sarad convinces Ugly and Mess into buying Punjab!

It begins and voila! Its a success! Probably success is an understatement! When we think of that one thing that can surely be a bit, its either Bollywood or Cricket. And IPL gave us a perfect blend of the two. People were happy, and so were the team managers, players and our very own Sarad Paar.
