Scene: 8:25 pm. Grany and mama are in a blanket and Apu, A and I are in an other. Kids are jumping here and there.
A: I am deadly tired of these long ceremonies of a single marriage. What the hell it is?? (he has juste attended the sis and bro’s marriages of two of his friends).
Me: I dont understand why people drag this small function. According to Islam, there should be a small household function of Nikah which could be held in Masjid and after that there should be one function of Valima for family gathering. Thats’ all and the marriage is ended.
Apu: All these fazool ceremonies are shadows of Hindu culture. We should avoid that. (apni splendid shadi bhool jissay log ab tak bhula sakay).
A: Instead of wasting money, parents should give it to new couple so that they could easily set up their life with might be small business. (hun matlab ki baat ;p )
Me: Yea absolutely right. saving of money and saving of time. Shadi should be like that. I am totally fucked of these long ceremonies and long distance marriages. (how cud forget that I almost lost my chance of promotion due to leaves for the wedding of mamo’s son 😦 )
A: I would InshaAllah marry according to Islamic traditions.
Me: yes yes…………..
Mom: (feeling irritated, issay pehlay k mai kuch kehti, she says..) ok ok its good if we arrange sucha marraige for A but for S (me 🙂 ) , we could not do that.
Me: Why? I protest.
Mom: becoze you are gal and we would do as your inlaws would wish. (hun larki walay 😡 )
Me: thats’ not fair. I am the person who is more than irritatant with these functions and brides gullan ganda type tayyari and youre’ saying this to me.
Grany: she is surely right.
Apu: thats’ true. we have to respect them.
A: right right
Me: No and I will not take any type of Jaheiz.
Grany: bakwas band karo apni (lo aik tu bhala karo uper say galiyan sunu…….nai tu naa sahi chuswaein khoon apna shok se hun )
(In ohter words they were saying me shut up on this topic. H jumped on my legs, I yelled…)
Papa: whats’ going on?
Apu: we were planning for S’ wedding.
(I do my best to shoe my shyness on dis topic before papa 😀 )
Papa: oh oh acha (sayin eagerly… I dont understand why they feel so excited on this topic)
Everyon starts giving suggestions and exchanging their views. But a keera was crawling in my head …..snifffff………but I do not stop my acting of sharmana hehehe….)
Papa: pehlay bachay ki shadi par ju kami reh gai thi woh hum ab pori karein gay InshaAllah 🙂
Mahi interupts and I was surprised that she was listening all that carefully while playing)
Mahi: nai nai hum khala ki shadi nai karein gay. 😮
(ye itni choti zalim smaaj kahan se aa gai)
Grany: hai hai aisay nai kehtay
Mom: kyiun beta?
Mahi: kiyun phr ju dulhay uncle hotay hein woh dulhan ki le kar chalay jatay hein aur phr apnay paas rakhtay hein aur anay bhi nai detay. (hai mela bacha 🙂 )
(Everyone start laughing and its’ time to show my best piece of actin again so I did successfully 😀 )
The session ended with this sweet complaint and I start thinking that this little girl rightly pointed out the touchy moment 😦 ……….I will definitely learn judu karatay before marriage…..so program of joining of beautition classes has been canceled.
