All my requirements got a check mark when I met Dragon. It was like God took my list and designed him for me. But, as fate had it, I married not Dragon, but the best life could offer me. Paresh. A guy who closes his eye deep as he fold hands before the deity, too innocent to utter anything sarcastic, speaking is not what he was born to do and yet, here I am. Here he is. Married to one another. And every single day I thank fate for getting us together. For there is not a husband better than him. You may differ with my point. Tell me that your husband is better. Paresh tells me the same thing. "How do you say I am the best husband? There may be more." Maybe. Maybe not. Not having any competition here. That said, now let's go back to agreeing that Paresh is the best husband "I could ever get".
Seeing myself with Paresh, I always think of my science teacher from school. She repeatedly made us by heart, "Opposites attract, like repel." Seeing Paresh, I am also reminded of that Bollywood movie, whose name of course, I can not recall, but it had an old man, telling the father of the girl, "jodiya toh upar wala banata hai."
It's not just Paresh and me. Everywhere I look around, I see more and more of it. Want examples?
1. Rohit-My colleague. Has been hunting his bride for 3 years or, more. 3 years and all our conversations ended with he not finding his bride and one fine day, he meets this girl. Not very attractive (according to him. I haven't even seen her yet. I swear) First look and bam! He announces, "This is the one I want to marry". No more conversation. Nov 27, 2013 is his big day.
2. Parv- Colleague again. Divorced. Folks have been hunting for long. Parv meets all these girls that the parents select. Date them for some time, but it never ends up happily. Just recently he meet this girl. Surprisingly the "pandit" too was there during the meeting and he said, "if you decide to get married, it is either Oct 12 or, Jan somewhere." Now when I say Oct 12, Oct 12, is just 4 days away from when he meets this girl for the first time. And today, Oct 15, he tells me with a hug, "I am married!"
I have more examples, but let them be.
So, I remind him again, "See how I used to tell you, marriages are made in heaven?" "How true. Isn't it?" Parv replies back saying that time will tell. "Will let you know in 6 months time." I rubbish it.
Good or, bad. Marriages are indeed made in heaven. Be blessed if your marriage is good. And, if you are one of them, stuck in what you think is a bad marriage, then get deep into your wedlock and you would see, why is it this person you wake up next to. If you are not married yet, you may be too busy to see this while you say, "I do" but, I assure you, you would one day see, how your marriage is made in heaven.
