So the BFF asked me “Out of all the innovative, funky, absurd, hilarious and genuine names in this world, how the hell did you zero in on something like smdeea11 :O :O :O :O :O”.
I made a mental note to post this reason on blog.
First reason was, all the good names were already taken (Yeah,right! Isn’t it obvious!). I didn’t have a choice.
Now The second reason, SM stands for sentis and mentals, the name DeeA because of the khichdi I mentioned in my previous post and now comes the interesting question. Why 11?
It is because all three of us, PIC, Joy and me were born on the 11th of different months. Months will be told if anyone is interested and gifts are always welcome :D.
I also mentioned there that I got married at the age of nineteen. Yes, you heard me right. It doesn’t mean that it was my dream to marry as soon as I was an adult. And no, it was not a love marriage.
The reason is I lost my father in my teens itself and my extended family was taking care of me and my family. It was not decided that I would be married this early but my only uncle got a heart attack. He felt that he wouldn’t live more and wanted to fulfill his responsibilities. As I was the eldest in the family, they decided to marry me.
But me being me, never wanted this to happen. Like every other girl, I wanted to study, work and never settle. I mentally made a note that I would explore the city, refuse the guy and come back. I also was very sure that he would reject me on his own.
But destiny had other plans. As soon as I met the family, the would be FIL asked me if I was being forced into the marriage! Not only this, he also told me if that is the case, I could say a NO and they would say that the kundlis did not match or they didn’t like the girl. I was surprised! They thought I being a girl without a father was being forced, which I actually was.
Now the next twist. When I met PIC, he said the same words. He also added that I was free to continue my studies even after marriage. He promised me many other things like taking care of my family, which he is fulfilling in every possible way. He also used a pickup line which we will discuss later.
Now the ball was in my court. I am a very practical girl. I don’t believe in fairy tales and mushy stuff goes above my head! So, I decided to go ahead. I knew from his words that he was a good guy and anyways, I was not given a choice from my set of family. And only a fool could reject this family, which I was not.
So this is how yours truly got married before her voted ID card was made :D.
P.S. I was not sure of doing this post but only because of you I was able to do it. So Thank you, Visha 🙂
P.P.S. Lets forget the sad stuff in this post. I am in a happy space now and PIC is the best partner I or anyone else could have asked for.
