Exactly! It’s a good thing the Covid lockdown happened. Take
it as an ominous sign, Jeevan,”

“How can you
say that, Ma? It’s just bad timing.”

“Perfect
timing to call it off. Eh, if they cannot even afford to spend lavishly for
their only daughter’s wedding, how will they …” The rest of her sentence
trailed away under Jeevan’s scorching glare.

“Anyway, we
found you that match. We’ll find you another,” said Pa, with a note of
finality.

That night,
driven by a renewed feeling of commitment, and a desire to disregard societal
expectations, Jeevan and his newfound-love Anushree eloped.

sometimes , har cheeze ominous sign hee lagtaa hai. You just need to realize that kitnaa pee rakhi hai and then take decision in 10 mins, if it fails then take next one in another 10 mins. I tell you , koi na koi sahi baithegaa.
