Marriage Alliance Blues....

All who have gone thru Matrimonials of Hindu or any other paper would have come across these ads.

"Wanted Girl for INNOCENT Divorcee, aged 35, 176 cms, working in an MNC. Girl should be working. Blah, blah... and it goes on until u come to the last line, "Widows and Divorcees, plz excuse"

Previously I thought, maybe Innocent means, the guy doesnt know how to make out with his wife..... ;-). Then I got the meaning that Innocent means that he didnt initiate the divorce proceedings, but his Ex-wife did; which just substantiates my inital understanding of the whole damn thing. :-)

But then the last line has always irritated me. "Widows, Divorcees, plz excuse"..... WTF?? He could have better advertised as "Only VIRGINS allowed". How will it be in this country if it was the other way round.... a girl advertising that way? No doubts, he will eventually get a girl who is desparate to get married because of her economic status. But how much more Narrow minded can U get? Is it because he doesnt want to live together with some one who isnt a virgin? Or is it because he hates the thought that his wife to be, has been with someone else for all these years? The girl he marries might be only 25 yrs old, and he would expect her to take care of his child, and also beget a child. People might say that it was not he but his parents who advertised that way..... Hullo, ppl, grow up. He has got a brain. He should use it.

Anyway, just have a real life incident which I thought I would share with U all. One of my family friend's wife died due to heart failure. He has a daughter aged 14. His parents wanted him to marry for the sake of his daughter. He agreed and they advertised in the usual way. He reprimanded them and started searching for a bride himself. Through common contacts he came to know that a lady had lost her husband in an accident. She has a son. He approached her and asked her. Initially reluctant, she then agreed and they got married. They have an understanding that they are not going to have more kids. His parents were livid at first, but now they are gradually beginning to patch up. As a result, the kids have both, maternal and financial care.

Thats it for now.... cya, all!!

Shud have written this a month back!! But was busy in my office with all the orkutting and other useful stuff!! :-) anyway, better late than never.

Lemme start with the place it took place. The play took place in Rangashankara Hall, JP Nagar. It took us some half an hour to find that place, inspite of being accompanied by a Bangalore buddy!! The place was very strict in timings, and they had mentioned that doors would be closed after the scheduled time and NO REFUNDS!! As we had gone on a weekday, we got good center seats. The hall was very good and it had a nice posh ambience.

Coming to the play, it was a complete laugh riot. The oneliner goes like this, "LOVE AT SECOND SIGHT". It is abt a divorcee and a widower getting together. Dialogues like, "Your nose is suffering from a jet lag, George" and "That is a great body. Male or Female. Uh, Dunno, I am watching the rear end" had us all in splits. Cant go in depth here, as the humor is all circumstantial. But my friend was sore that there were no gr8 romances in the film. His wish was also granted with two kisses. :-) The female lead was a complete hottie, and had our attention till the very end. ;-) The lead actors were all good with the one playing the friend character, THE BEST!!

The play did drag a bit in the later half, but that can be excused. On the whole, I would give it 9/10.

P.S: To top it all, I got a surprise gift; A stress buster.
