Monsoon Wedding!!!

Two of my friends are getting married today - to each other! And since it is raining Cats and Dogs, I can safely call theirs a Monsson Wedding!

Hope they have a great life together....

Since I am not attending the wedding, a lot of my other friends are, I was thinking about them and how the announcement of their marriage surprise (actually shocked !) us all. Some ppl actually thought this was a gag! And since my wandering mind never stays on one topic for long, I thought about some other marriage announcements that came as a surprise...

The one that takes the cake is the rumor that a batchmate had come back from his 10 day holiday with a bride in tow! Now why should that be a shocking announcement? Because I was in school and in class four. So the grrom in question could not have been more than 10 years of age! Though is remained a rumor and was never confirmed by the boy, it was spicy enough to keep speculations on. I wasn't friends with that boy, we were at an age when girls hung out with girls and boys hung out with boys and if the teacher made any girl and boy sit on the same bench, the term was doomed miserable for both of them! I doubt even his 'friends ' knew the truth, not that he had many. He was a shy guy and wore baalis in both years. Salman Khan had yet not arrived on the scene and a guy with baalis in both his ears was not a cool dude then - he was wierd! I left the school the next year and lost touch with all the friends there.... so I don't know what happened to that guy.... in fact I had forgotten all about him till this morning, when I was thinking about the monsoon wedding I was about to miss today. Just thought, how did a guy of 10 years handle all that pressure then? Even if he wasn't married, he wasn't doing anything about the rumors and jibes. And if he was, Gosh! Grown ups find it tough to handle an arranged marriage.... and they were just kids!

The second - this guy in my class gets married in the eighth sem and tells us only after the result was out. We suspected he was engaged, but marriage is something else! And save for three four chaps in his group, the rest of the class knew about his marriage a good six months after he had been married. And he sure was embarrased about it!

And thats it for now - haven't suffered so many shocks you see! But if there are anymore coming my way, i just might blog about it....
