I am left to wonder; did this just happen or I conjured up a fantasy;
For it was just a few months ago, the assent was taken for my candidacy.
Questions were asked and the recipe defined,
Arranged it would be for me, for I did not have a love life of any kind.
Indian way is for arrangement of souls to love for life,
Elders get a vote and aspirants get to decide.
Bio datas were looked up and photos scrutinized,
I too was under review and every movement of mine analyzed.
Qualifications asked and salary details were requested,
My hobbies and aspirations were threadbare dissected.
Someone I didnt approve some my family declined,
Lets take it easy there is no rush, was all that I whined.
Then it happenned and the sequence is still a haze,
Did I first say yes or the other way round was the case
We talked for a little while and doubts were clarified,
She wanted to work and I wanted my family to be satisfied.
Religious she claimed she is, gorgeous I certified,
We want our life partners to be our friends we specified.
The saga still unfolds and I will keep you updated
The dates I am told are still to be decided.
