Hello viewers(??) :D.This time I have planned to have some discussion on one of the biggest punishments given by the society to youngsters,especially men :D.Yes your honour,you are absolutely right.Its all about marriages.Marriage involves several issues,its not just tying a knot to a girl or exchanging rings.There is a lot beyond this.Let us discuss everything in this post.
When it comes for a marriage you may experience several issues.You need to enquire about the character of girl/boy and their family with their neighbours,you have to fix marraige hall,you should make arrangements for cooking,printing and distributing invitations and so on.But all these things are just secondary.First of all one has to fix a girl/boy,which itself involves numerous formalities.Some may prefer city girls,working girls and some other people may prefer girls who are willing to be home makers(nowadays most of them doesnt want their wife to be in home ;)).And luckily(??)if u could find a girl as u wish,then comes the next big thing.The girl side has to throw some money to the boy's side so that they r assured that their daughter leads a happy life.If u r not going to give enough dowry,then ur daughter may face difficulty of any form.This is the case only if the boy's side beg sorry demand some money.Some funny cases are there,where the boy will demand some lakhs of money first.Then a pulsar(in olden days people use to demand a scooter,now pulsar is latest na,so people keep themselves updated with the trend :D),so that the boy can reach office in time(paavam ithukku munnadi avar correct time ku office ponathilla :D),then a gold chain and whatever he wants.
That too in the present scenario they may demand anything from a girl to survive the recession :D.And after the business is over,I mean the pre-marriage arrangements is over,they will tell one great dialogue."ellame unga ponnukkaga than"-everything is for ur daughter only :D.My question is dont the parents know what to do for their daughter?Why the hell such fellows demand(in my opinion asking bike and etc from a girl to marry her is begging only )so much?The worst case is even after looting so much from the girl, we are able to see gas stoves or kerosene stoves getting bursted..Dont know when this non-sense tradition will change.But this is not new tradition,this is old tradition only,then what are all those new traditions and events taking place in marriages nowadays?Read on..
This new tradition is from friends side.One of my friends was giving invitations to all other friends for his sister's marriage.Normally when we get the invitation we use to ask,"what the bride groom is doing?where the marriage"etc.This is old fashion,in new trend guys are ask'ing "Macha kalyanamna ELLAM(everything) undu la da,ELLAM undu la da :D"-means "Macha marriage means u have arranged everything na".This fellow got irritated and started saying,"See da no problem even if u dont come,if u have any other good work,pls do that,because duty is more important(namakku kadama than mukkiyam),I am giving this only for a formality :D".But anyway the recipient doesnt have any prestiege or something like that,he will come for sure..
Another thing which is quite common in marriages is "Sightings of India".Well u may argue that its quite common everywhere,but still u know marriage means something special.Because if u get caught u will get nicely from both families irrespective of whose side u belong to :D.But that happens rarely.A boy or girl above 15 yrs of age means its quite common that they may involve in such mischiefs,but what makes me wonder is the development of next generation(valarum thalaimurai :D) which is formed by kids of age 7-10.yrs. In a marriage my friend wanted to approach a girl and for that he wanted to know what her name is.She was with many girls,so he felt bit shy and he used the old tactics :D.He called an 8 yr old boy and told him to ask her name.This fellow simply scolded my friend and said "dont u have any other work?" and went off.
I thought he is a young Vivekananda,but he straight away went to that girl.Spoke something with her.After that he was roaming here and there and then after sometime he came towards us and said "anna andha akka peru priya"-brother her name is priya.I asked him " y did u scold him in the beginning and y u didnt come immediately",for that he replied,"had i spoke with him nicely in the beginning itself she might not have said her name and had i come directly to him she might know that it was he who asked the name"-Then only I thought he will become a big Premananda in future :(.
The mid-night party is the best part of marriages these days.I have mentioned this in one of my earlier posts in the same dream---life blog,that watching people when they are drunk and out of control is the best entertainment :D.The reason is that,once a fellow consumes kalyani or nepolean :P in excess they start showing their power(enna irunthalum napolean maaveran la :D).They will speak out all secrets in public and we too can get an opportunity to know some new informations like the person who is speaking while drunk might have been in love with your girl friend :D.One fellow said while he was drunk,
"macha now am in love with a girl called roopa da",another guy asked him,
"is she also in love with you?",he replied
"hahaha,ennada ipdi ketta,athelam theriyama eranguvana,mama ethana ponna love pannirkken"-(means,what da will I get into it without knowing those details,i have loved so many gals na :D)..
Like this we can enjoy watching them,but we should not drink,if we really want to enjoy others :D.
Thats it,thats all about the new tradition in marriages.I guess this is a very long post :( ,if u feel its a Mokka,kindly tell me in comments section..Soon I will meet with my next work..
