At Last I Am Married

So at last I am married, after trying for the same for almost 7 years. There were so many negotiations with the families of so many “prospective brides”, so many “rays of hope”, and finally “unsuccessful endings” for all of those negotiations. Finally, on 29th November 2009, I at last tied the knot with Debyani Dey, a marketing professional working for a Delhi-based newspaper. The wedding ceremony took place at Konnogar, a small town near Kolkata where Debyani’s parents live. The wedding ceremony was followed by a Reception Party in Kolkata, on 1st December.

Needless to say that the marriage has marked the beginning of a new chapter in my life, though it is certainly not that the post-marriage life is drastically changed from my pre-marriage life. I find my life to be more-or-less the same, except the fact that now I have somebody very special in my life.

Now we two are enjoying our married life in Delhi, trying to make the life colourful through small and simple funs. But our marriage has not made us take shelter inside a cocoon, where we are deliberately cut off from the rest of the world. We both are social persons, and are maintaining (rather retaining) close touch with all relatives and friends. We do not believe in the concept of “getting lost in the private world of our own”. Rather we find it much more enjoyable to share our fun and pleasure with our near and dear ones, while also maintaining our privacy and enjoying our own private moments.

We sincerely appeal for everybody’s love and wishes, so that we can have a simple, happy and peaceful married life.

Kolkata Guy Marries Two Sisters

Something interesting has happened in Kolkata (or Calcutta) in eastern India, the city where I grew up. I just felt I should share the incident with my friends who are unaware of it.

A Kolkata guy, named Kaushik Dutta has married two sisters – Jhuma and Shoma. And now these three (one husband and his two wives) are staying together in a single house.

All three of the “dramatis personae” are reportedly well educated and belong to the so-called upper class of the society. Jhuma is a post-graduate, while the younger sister Shoma holds a doctorate. The three jointly own a publishing house that brings out text books.

Quite naturally it has caused sensations in the city, with various prominent personalities (sociologists, authors, etc) expressing different views. Apart from being against the Hindu Marriage Act, this marriage is also being accused of being unethical. However, there are some who are supporting what Kaushik has done, saying that his act reflects the basic human nature.

I will not like to express any personal view, as I feel I am not intelligent or knowledgeable enough to make any analysis of this exceptional incident. Rather I will leave it to my friends to make their own analysis.
