Preps for the Big Day

In 4 days i will loose the tag of a Bachelor, preparations are in full swing for the D day. Ever since Monday last i have been going around inviting people, things now are in the advanced stage where arrangements are being finalized and confirmed. The final touches and checks are being made. Wednesday should see the "Full Ahead" signal and final dash to the ocassion.

Amid all this hectic, crazy (mis)adventure what’s extremely difficult is to maintain ones cool. There are ten different people advising you and some telling you what needs to be done. Worse is when they expect you to 'do as advised' and want their own way through. I feel like a punching bag where everyone from both parties pouncing on me and expect me to smile and say " My pleasure". Seriously! Since past so many days i am picking up arguments left right center and am seeing my self being trodden over like a doormat. Nobody listens to me and my opinions is never considered. A game we used to play as children comes to my mind, where each player had to hid the center top with ones top point and make it fling. I feel like the center top! What the bloddy heck. On second thoughts ....i should'nt be having second thoughts though still i wish i could skip this rigmarole and simply be at peace instead of these pieces.

Well... Que sera can i survive the remaining 4 days is to be seen.

"Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed

We vowed our true love though a word wasn't said
The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
Except for the few that were there in your eyes.
The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn
The sun shone anew but the dance lingered on
Could we but relive that sweet moment sublime
We'd find that our love is unaltered by time."
- lyrics to "The Anniversary Waltz," composed by Dubin/Frankl

Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him. ~H.L. Mencken, A Book of Burlesques, 1916

Final Day of Invitations

Today was the last day of going around inviting people, friends and relatives for my Marriage 10 days later. Ever since Monday i have been saying "16th is the reception at Gorai, Please do come". Today Morning Mom, Dad and Myself made a beeline for Thane and formally Invited Andrew Mama. Thereafter by 1230 i dropped in at Waynes and Invited his parents and then scooted to invited Junior college Teachers. Miss Rekha, Lata, Mitra, Manisha and Rita were so happy seeing me (I so gleeful that they recognised me at first sight). Then by 1330 I visited a place in Interface to put a face to a name (happy  faces there too). later after some shopping in D-Mart i went to Mhada (malvani) to invite a old so called friend. Thank God i didnt meet him but got his latest number and messaged him.

By 1630 I was home and then 2 hours later i went to Uttan to invite my school friends. Oooooooo How delighted, suprised, thrilled and joyous they were to see me and that too inviting! Looks like they have been waiting for my Invitation all this while (some for years). This day is the best of days in and i would like to reiterate  " there's no other relationship in the world like Friendship!!!

Three Cheers to Friendship!!!
