November Bliss

It seems the other day when I wrote this downright crazy poem for R and this absurd code of conduct for myself. In this world, however, several years have passed. It was in November 2009 when I first met R. It is November again and a very special one at that. For my best friend over the years is now also my fiancé. R and I got engaged on the third of November, to be wedded on February 23. Yeah, in less than four months from now. Is the world real?

I have been bombarded with questions from friends and family. Half of them can’t believe I am having a “love” marriage. They can’t picture the *allow me some vanity here* class topper, spectacled, pig-tailed girl marrying someone who isn’t a Bengali and is apparently someone she chose herself. This half overlaps with the other half that is smitten by R’s apparent patience, intelligence and poise. Okay, I am only kidding.

I am overwhelmed at the direction life has taken. It seems surreal that I am going to soon marry my best friend over the years – the one who has been my most trusted confidant and my most effective support system. While R and I have never shied away from talking to each other about anything under the sun, I am certain that most of our engagement pictures will see us staring at the ground, cheeks red as crimson.

So yes, ladies and gentlemen, yours truly is engaged to be wedded. How about you start planning the wedding gifts right away?

  1. I loved this post & I love your blog. Wishing you a happy life ahead. There is nothing half as pleasing as marrying your best friend. You are lucky. I feel relatable to what you write and I specifically come here to read you.
