@ Ravindra Palli Pooja Park, Lucknow.
You all are cordially invited to share the joy and fun.
~ Mohul ~
I am Mohul Ghosh. Currently working as an Online Marketer and Writer, and wish to become an entrepreneur very soon. And this is my first marriage. More about me here.
In little more than 48 hours, I am going to get married. And believe me, it’s still sounding strange to me. May be because this is my first marriage, and maybe because I am a bit nervous about this whole thing, called marriage. A sense of ‘transformation’ is being experienced by me, at this particular time. As if, I am moving from one state to another. For me, this is a crazy time, and this is big deal. Just imagine you will be officially responsible for another life, for the rest of the years you are alive. Just imagine you are now, officially, a husband. Big deal.
When I was kid, I always used to regard marriage as a waste of resources, and time. For me, it was all a show off, a customary thing to do, for everyone. I was totally against this whole drama, and always fought with those who advocated marriage as being a necessary event in one’s life.
As I look back to those years, I can’t help but smile.
~ Deepali ~
Deepali is a passionate fashion designer, whose only dream is to open her own boutique and sell her own designs. Until she fulfills her dream, she is gaining some corporate experience by doing a 9-5 job in Gurgaon. She too, wants to become an entrepreneur. She is a typical girl from Dehradun: lively, chirpy, cute, fashionable and funny as hell. And I have found her as the most beautiful lady on Earth.
She is very excited about her marriage. She has spent zillion number of hours matching the saree’s border with the right colour and formulating the best zari work for my sherwani. All the dresses which would be used in this wedding have been designed by her. I loved the passion and dedication with which she has created those lovely pieces of garments. Hours and hours of toil, hard work & creativity have been invested in these dresses. It’s a story in their own right. We have explored dark alleys of Chandni Chowk and poshgalleries of Emperio Mall in Vasant Kunj to create that oomph. Thanks to her, I now understand what it takes to create designer dresses. Sorry, pictures only after the functions.
We met four years back, and the moment I saw her, I knew that she will be going to be my partner for rest of my life. It was love at the first micro second. And after five years, we are going to get married. I always believed that I am a good convincer, a person who can negotiate things out. And boy, what a negotiation I have accomplished. I still feel that she is way too good for me. But, it is said that marriages are made in heaven. And, I am proud of this heavenly creation: our marriage.
Controversies & More Stories: Thank you mom and dad & mom-in-law and dad-in-law.
I am a Bengali, and she is not a Bengali. Yes, it is an ‘inter-caste’ (a weird term invented by weird people) and ‘love’ (aren’t all marriages supposed to be loved? Arranged sounds more mechanical to me) marriage for which several of my relatives have whispered and talked about. Many have famously denounced this marriage, and rubbished its beauty. I am very sure that the same have been discussed in Deepali’s home as well (She has never shared the details). On top of it, she is a Brahmin, a caste which is regarded as being the highest among all castes. I am not a Brahmin, which is, again, a controversy. But thankfully, her parents and mine both have shown extreme support and cooperation, and without their consent, this whole event couldn’t have been arranged (did I say that I am very good convincer .
As far as my own, personal opinions are concerned, I don’t regard caste, religion and such divides as a thing to talk about. It serves no purpose at all, in overall scheme of things. God, is a very special entity in my life, and I believed my God when He Himself asked me to marry Deepali. Thank you God.
Rest everything is secondary.
So, that is the whole story of my marriage.
Thanks a lot for reading this, and being my friend and my well wisher. Your support and love is always cherished.
Now, off to “Mohul weds Deepali”….
I am coming home!
