The Day He Came Home


loveLike every other Indian girl, I grew up dreaming about my prince charming since a very young age. I somehow got possessive about him so much that I did not realize when I switched on the bollywood mode. But today was an eye opener…
“In relationship” is a status that is not the complete version of taken and leaves a small window of availability. This window gets grilled by commitment and closes on marriage. And I want to close the window. My intentions, views or my future plans were crystal clear. I had found the man of my dreams and finished judging him to be the right one for me. All I needed was to get married.
But one day, my dream changed. Continuous peer pressure reached the threshold of my dream and all I wanted to do was run away from marriages, guys and anything had even the slightest tinkle of a wedding ring!!
Let me make you understand my scene, I had found my man, I knew I want to end up with him, but neither he nor me were ready to make us exclusive…or take our parents into confidence. Reasons were varied, right from dark pasts to stupid reasons like being scared of marriage. When we both were getting comfortable in our virtual commitment cloud, my siblings made the courage to prick it and make my life easier by making this virtual commitment a reality. They told my parents about us. They made us exclusive.
Panicked, I rushed to the phone and told him, “my father wants to meet you” and like the lightning strikes the earth, his “yes” struck me hard and got me back to my senses. It cost me my half days salary to gather myself and face my parents. But I was the mother of this problem and he could have very easily dust his hands of the uncalled responsibility…but he didn’t.
Nightmare is the right word for the situation when a guy meets his girls’ father to officially ask permission to take her away! And today was the day for my guy to face this nightmare. Being judged, being asked absolutely stupid questions, he went through it very patiently wearing a smile throughout. I couldn’t stop wondering, why does he love me so much?
Well, I think I’ll spend the rest of my life finding out the answer and may not even get it. But truly, I am feeling light, everyone knows, and though the getting married part is still unclear, he stood by me when I needed him the most. And that is more than enough reason for me to stand by him whenever he needs me.
This is a genuine dedication to my man…you are my strength. I love you!
