Since, we all know that winters is usually a shaadi season of almost all the Desis out there and Desi shaadis without a doubt are most amazing ones as they provide you all the fun and free food, most importantly.
To be honest, it’s easy to get married but it’s too tough to survive in this relation these days, especially. But oh! Who cares about this factuality when wedding and its festivities are going on in shaadi season?
Everyone is into having matching shoes with banaarsi lehenga and kundan’s necklace with golden jhumkas. Some are upto deciding their favourite songs to rock on at mehendi and yes, consequently no one gives a dime at that time about what’s going to happen after lavish walima?
But there is for sure one thing about which everyone cares and that is, “oh! You are single till now, tch, tch! Let me find a nice rishta for you right here.”
Like, relax! Ask me first whether I want a rishta even or no before initiating your not-even-asked help and quest.
So, all the singles out there, in between all the sound and noice of band baja, shehnayi and fireworks, we know what you feel during shaadi season.
1. Facing “why single till now?” hundreds of times
Every other aunty at wedding is concerned about your single status for no reason and keeps on asking you this on repeat that “why the hell you are single till now?”
2. Also dealing with “koi rishta nahi aya?”
Yes, unfortunately you have to deal with “koi rishta nahi aya?” at every wedding you attend and things suddenly become awkward.
3. Being terrified by “next is yours turn, heheha!”
This one phrase is not less than any horror story and you become irritated by it very often. Like come on, stop making me leave this wedding.
4. Coping with the parents’ “falan ne kar li, ab tu bhi kar le” phrase
And alas! Your parents become worried suddenly by seeing girls of your age getting married and you are still roaming around like a free bird. It’s more like, “dekh Anushka ne bhi kar li, tu bhi kar le.”
5. You are at shaadi for food only
Prime reason of attending wedding is to have free plus good food. The best part of any wedding is muft and delicious kababs, biryani and halwa.
6. Answering “30 and unmarried?” too
All brown and white people have got this standard age of marriage which is any age below 30. As soon as you are 30 and unmarried, you are answering very often that, “why you didn’t marry anyone till 30 even?”
“Er, because I don’t want to. It’s this simple.” This will be followed by haws and hayes of everyone at you.
7. Forcefully smile on “let me find a rishta for you” to show fake gratitude
The rishta aunties are always ready to offer their free service to bachelors. Like hold on aunty, your taste sucks and I don’t wanna go with it.
8. Listening to never-ending benefits of “ghar basaana” in every shaadi season
Every discussion by ammas, chachis and puphis ends up with endless fawayid of ghar basaana; like you will become mother and oh! You will be having your “burhaapay ka sahaara.”
9. Rocking the dance floor but oh! Couple song got played and you are blank now
Desi weddings are all fun because of shaadi songs unless a romantic song plays on and oh! With whom you are going to dance?
10. You silently leave the dance floor when couple song played on or else, start rocking on it too with another single cousin or ALONE
It’s better to leave the floor silently on couple songs or wait, you can rock it on with your other single cousins, if you don’t find any then my friend! Be your own partner and set the dance floor on fire ALL ALONE.
11. Your all cousins and friends are getting married and you kinda feel lonely
It’s natural that you kinda feel “akelay tanha” when your cousins and friends are busy in their weddings and preparations but relax and be self-sufficient.
12. Lastly, when you leave, you start developing this feeling of “maybe I should get married too.”
Mostly weddings give you this feel that wow! Shaadi is all romance and fun and laughs. You end up deciding high in emotions that you are going to get married sooner and start imagining yourself as dulhaniya.
13. Plot twist: plan of getting married cancelled as soon as you hear the news of couples’ nasty fights
It happens; actually it happens very often and sooner these days and hardly, people are happy with their married lives. After listening about couples’ miserable married lives’ tales, you end up cancelling the plan of getting married and again start roaming like a carefree awaara paanchi.
So, we concluded that despite all the awkward things which singles face in shaadi season consequently, they end up being winners as there is much happiness and azadi in being a single than in any other thing. Cheers!
