Arranged Marriages.....

Is it so difficult to decide that 'Yes, this is the person that I wanna marry!!' Well, I think it is. How can you just decide in a meeting or two that he is the perfect one for you, that he is the one you would like to spend rest of your life with. Many of us go through this situation and accept this so called perfect pairing decided by our parents. First the bio-data is exchanged and then the photographs. If both the families like them, they go ahead and match the janampatris... Dont want to take any chance if either of them turns to be a mangli or their gunas dont match upto a certain level. Then comes the process of meeting.

Poor girl... what all she has to go through for that. She needs to look at her best. dress up in saree, put make up, leave the hair open, look like a shy girl, speak less, just smile, get a tray of tea along with some snacks which are supposedly made by her, show her paintings, greet everyone with a namaste and a pallu over her head..... urrrgh!!!!!! Now the girl is being asked what all can she cook, what has she done, what is she doing now, whether she wants to work after marriage or not. Finally, the guy's family give their decision... This is too much... Why cant people just let the girl be her normal self ? Why does she have to look like a made up doll? Why cant they just let the girl and the guy talk normally without all this taam-jhaam? Why cant they leave them to decide themselves whether they can go ahead with the relationship ? Let them meet for few times and then reach to a conclusion.

I just hope that nothing of this sort happens with me.

Its a male dominated society specially in India.. I have not seen even a single guy who has to go through all this...
