C for … Court Marriage

‘Four people, two garlands and two pens. That’s all I want at my wedding. A simple court marriage. Plain and simple’.

‘Bro, have you even discussed this with Nidhi once?’

‘What’s to discuss? She does want to marry me, right? And everything in those stupid wedding ceremonies are only about status and showoff. It’s what happens later that counts. No?’

‘Umm, I really think you should talk to her once, Anuj. She might not be OK with it!’

‘Chill man, I know her. I think she’ll be just fine!’


‘Oooh look! A palatial kinda wedding! Me likes! I want that! Complete with scented rose petals being showered from the air and orchids at every table and boy, it needs to be grand! I want the works, momma!’ Nidhi exclaimed, her eyes shining with excitement as she pored through the wedding planner’s catalog.

Nidhi’s mother looked across the room and caught her husband’s eye, a slight disapproval in her gaze. Shaking his head in amused disbelief at his daughter’s fantasies, he proceeded to slink down his chair and move away from being drawn into the discussion. Hiding behind the newspaper, he let out a soft chuckle. He couldn’t wait to see Anuj’s expressions on hearing Nidhi’s grand plans. Anuj was a fine man, but he was going to have his hands full with Nidhi. This was going to be fun!

I would love to hear your views!
