“ This is not done mom, I am not ready to meet this guy. Come on please I still have to complete my college. “ I said in one go trying all means to stop my mom from thinking about my marriage.
I am not a person made for marriage. Especially not after what my mom had gone through when my father left my mom and got married. I don’t hate my father. We are in good terms even after knowing the sufferings of my mom. My mom never asked us to not talk or meet our Father.
“ Go and get ready Radhika. I am not getting you married right away. I just want you to meet him and his mother for once and then decide.” My mom said with pleading eyes.
I cannot fight with my mom. I love her more than anything in my life. I don’t think I am that beautiful that this guy will agree for marriage. Nor do I have something like money or good job. I am just a college student who goes to college and comes home with not much excitement as I was raised with my mom and my elder sister with no man in the house. Even my school and college were strictly women. There is no denial that I did not talk with my father, I do talk to him occasionally but not that much aware of what men really are?
Mentally preparing myself, I went inside to get ready. Somewhere I was calmed that the boy will not like me. My sister Riddhima was helping me. She came from her house especially for me. My sister, well she is a happy married woman with a daughter. She did not had a same fate as my mother. I am happy for her.
I got ready with green and maroon combination Anarkali dress with little make up. My mom and sister were preparing table and cleaning the house to welcome my unwelcomed guests.
Based on true events. It will be a short story.
