Miss.UnmarriedToSociety

My beloved Uncle T rang me on Sunday. His daughter (my cousin M) gave birth to her first baby 2 weeks ago. We are all so very happy for her. She and the baby are doing well. Now guess WHY my Uncle T rang me? To give me a lecture for being single! *rolling eyes*. Here's that 16th-century conversation (don't get me wrong, I love my dear uncle..this is just how I really felt through the convo anyways):


Uncle T: Hi Keshi how are you love?


Keshi: I'm good and you guys?


Uncle T: We are doing great. Now that M has a baby, when are you having your own babies?
*says that with a sense of seriousness in his voice*


Keshi: *pause*....*pause*...*pause*
(what I wanted to say: Uncle T, since I haven't got a man yet, maybe I should ring up a Sperm Bank?)



Uncle T: When are you gonna settle down with a nice guy and give us good news?


Keshi: *my blood pressure reaches the peak of Kilimanjaro!*...
Uncle T I haven't found him yet. I'm settled down the way I am. I'm enjoying life you see!
(what I really wanted to say: Cos I'm quite busy 'settling' few Baboon jaws right now!)


Uncle T: hmmm...we are waiting for the big day Keshi...


Keshi: *pause*...*spit*...*puke*...*pause*
(what I wanted to say: You'll be waiting a very long time Uncle T...better quit waiting now and perhaps go on a trip to meet the Zulu Tribe in Africa?)


Uncle T: Why can't you find just any nice bloke and tie the knot?


Keshi: *pause*...ehhh I don't know Uncle T...I can't just get married for the sake of it, can I?
(what I really wanted to say: ANY nice guy? Ok Uncle T, tomorrow I'll ask the Milkman if he's single alright?)


Uncle T: You are not sad about it now cos you're young right now...but some day when you're old and grey, and you're all by yourself, you're gonna regret not getting married...


*at this point I wanted to dig a whole in my own living room, jump in it and bury myself to death...cos of the 16th-century-woman-needs-a-man-to-breathe convo that I have being forced to have on a Sunday!*


Keshi: I don't wanna think about my old age and how I'd feel then. What matters is how I feel right now, and right now I'm happy Uncle T...
(what I really wanted to say: When I'm older, I'd prefer being single than cuddling with dentures and wigs on ewww!)


Uncle T: Keshi my dear, you can't live without a partner in life...

*at this point I wanted to scream so loud that Uncle T would hear me across the seas and open his door thinking I'm there!*


Keshi: *pause*...do you want to speak to sis?
(what I really wanted to say: If I continue this convo any more than this, I might break this phone and pull the socket and wires off the wall electrocuting myself to death! So my dear Uncle T, please save me from looking like a charcoaled (and yes, single!) chicken stuck on the back of a faulty fridge!)

*hands over the phone to sis and I can sense that Uncle T is asking a question from my sis*

Sis replies: I haven't found him yet Uncle T... *sis makes a spooky face at me that looked like she wanted to kill me instantly!*

LOL the same convo seem to repeat with sis! *rolling eyes infinitely*


How can you convince some people that staying single or not having a partner (perhaps through your entire life even) is not a such a shame/crime? My pet peeves are when relatives and friends ask me when I'm getting married (and I haven't even found a guy!), when I'll have my babies (and I haven't even gotten married!) and why I can't find a guy (as if it's a question that can be answered in a way people can understand!). And worse, recently a married friend of mine told me this...'Keshi if you don't get married and have babies some day, it's like you were born invain into this world..cos your purpose as a woman on Earth, which is to be a wife and mother, would not be fulfilled and that's sad'. FYI her husband beats her up and she's still with him cos she doesn't wanna end the marriage! I didn't say that cos I wanted to laugh at her, but what is she going on about advising me why I should be married etc, when she's not having such a splendid marriage herself? Just cos I'm single right now, am I a waste to this world? Enlighten me please.

Why are people always trying to live by the SOCIETY and not by their own values? I puke at that! No, I'm not pretending...I'm truly 'single and happy'. Why can't people get that? A woman's life isn't ONLY about getting hitched, making babies and becoming mothers. If that's the case, why is it that there are so many orphaned children, cruel mothers, millions of happy single people and millions of unhappy married people? So please don't nauseate me with your 'You should be married in order to be happy and to be useful to the world' kinda fossil-menatlity of you'rs. I'm not married to the Society, neither am I gonna live by what it demands...nor am I hell bent on finding someone and seeking that perfect life!
I give a damn about it. Leave me alone! *pukes on Society's face*


Off topic: I just want you to give me one reason why I should continue to blog. I know I blog for myself, but sometimes I just want to leave all this and disappear for good...all I can say is I'm not perfect. Just tell me why you think I should be here, without glorifying me ofcourse. Thanks!

Hey.. there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be single... And I am a married woman speaking..

My elder sis, 2 years older than me is single and is in no hurry whatsoever to get married... She goes through the same stoopid routine with our relatives as well.. where they say, "Oh you poor thing, ur younger sis is married and ur not.." makes me wanna plunge a knife into them...

My sister had breast cancer and to remove the malignant tumor had to have a mastectomy.. She reasons that to marry someone, she needs that someone to be mentally strong to accept her the way she is, and to be prepared for a cancer scenario later on in life...

And if she does not find that one person also, its good.. She feels she should not be a burden on anyone else.. she makes good money, has great friends and a wonderful life.. she does nt want a marriage...

She is my hero.. And Kesh, u don need anyone else to complete u either.. Ur fantastic as it is!!

P.S. Sorry for hogging ur comment space..

Whitesnake said...

Just tell ya uncle that I haven't asked ya yet.....better still send him to my blog and maybe he will stay quiet...........sssshhhhh be very very quiet it's marriage season.

Tarun said...

First of the topic.

I want u to blog so that I can come to know.

1.When u get engaged.
2.When u get married.
3.When u come mother/grand mother /great grand mother .........

Well as for married vs single, well me too is getting flaked.
My perception is married guy and gals (if gals are working) are perceived to be responsible and mature when they get married.
Single people are (perceieved to be) irresponsible, immature, high nosed, lame idito, duck brained, fool, insane, naieve, idiot, uncaring, unwanted....

*still thinking of adding few more "highlights"*

g-man said...

i know soooo many people who have had the same conversation with their relatives. all i've got to say is, its their choice, and nobody gets to push anyone around. if i ever find someone who i love and who's willing to spend the rest of their life with me, i wouldn't bother looking at religion or what anyone else thought. its my life, i get to do what i want with it. if it gets screwed up, i'd much rather screw it up than have someone else do it for me. n hey, whatever makes you happy, you go n do it!!! its pointless getting your dander up when talking to relatives whose brains still reside in the dark ages

why should you continue blogging? i don't know...that, again is up to you. i think blogging is such a release, especially since you can be yourself without any issues. its pretty difficult to be open to people who you have to see and talk to every day, and i guess blogging is the only thing that keeps some of us going. if you ever decide to quit though, please do stay in touch, mail or im

Anjuli said...

I could so realte to this post :)
and as usual it was so hilarious!


and continue to blog, 'coz I love reading what u write :)

maverick said...

ha ha ha ha...tht was such a cute conversation...the look on ur face during the conversation must ve been priceless.....

well i gues thats a standard indian subcontinent family conversation....n im sure not ur first one too :)...so just let it go :)

mayz said...

**'Keshi if you don't get married and have babies some day, it's like you were born invain into this world..cos your purpose as a woman on Earth, which is to be a wife and mother, would not be fulfilled and that's sad'

i cant believe someone can say that...n that too a woman...which era is she livin in???

n believe me this is not only limited to girls...have jus turned only 25 n relatives have started askin...its d most irritating thing...gives me homicidal tendencies

**I just want you to give me one reason why I should continue to blog.

1)there r somethings u cnt always talk wid ppl u kno...this is d perfect place
2) not all emotions can b spoken...sm need to b penned down
3) coz words live on forever
4)for ppl to kno u better (read me :D)

Sanchit said...

:) good hain.. love the portrayal

Arv said...

I have been hearing this for quite a while now. they make me feel as if the entire family is living with one goal - to find me a good woman & get me married. But I cant just marry a girl cos its 'time' to get married.

I dont wish to be single all my life (hell not even for long) but I just need time to find a woman with whom I can live a good life.

As you rightly say Keshi, they are doing it out of love and their intentions are good. So dont hold any ill feelings towards them (its ok to be pissed off though). :)

Things will come around and eventually it will fade away or you may find some guy and get married. Either way, all will end well for you girl.

as for your other question... what would a lotus (facing south east) do in a vast pond all alone?

humbl devil said...

bcoz u cant give anybody the reason that you stopped blogging bcoz of uncle T...
hahahah

and you were telling me to continue blogging???

p.s.
the question about unrequited love...

Hemanth Potluri said...

Keshi love u yaar ..wat a post i had good time reading it out ..lol...i am single want to get mingle hahaha lol..just kiddin ...ur uncle is true in some cases ...ur point of view is absolutely correct ...but see the other side also findin a perfect man may take more years also..so i m ready for u hahaah lol..kiddin buddy..but from ur post i came to know wat a single women thinks for the absulute person she want ...thnks buddy...

urs..hemu..

SMM said...

I got married at the age of 23, while my cousin sister (who is 10 years older)is not yet married. She (as well as her parents) prefer to skip family functions and weddings since they don't want a repeat of this conversation. All I will say (like I tell all my single friends)- Don't bother about what people will say (yes I know you will say that's easy for you to say - your married). When you meet the right guy you ill yourself want to get married. Till then just hang on and tell Uncle dearest to fulfil his duties by hunting for someone for you.

And why should you continue to blog -
1) Its a release of emotion which you can't always tell people who are very close to you.
2) Its way cheaper than paying for a shrink.
3) And yes you do make a difference - I really thought about the answers (when you had put up all those 25 -30 questions about oneself) and so did all the others before answering. Made us think about our goals and our means and our aims and ourselves.
4) You have made friends in the blogworld.
5) This blog is a part of you.

PS: You seem to be pretty upset and low about something judging from the current post. If its about the conversation with your uncle, throw it back at him. Tell him to find you someone or next time tell him that you prefer Miss Right (and not Mister). Should definitely shut him up.

Chakoli said...

U blog fr urself:))

very true...

but then u need that u (read it as I) be also known to others...not only good qualities..anmd bad... but everything:)))

about being single...its all indivisual choice I think...if its nt in ur mind...dnt go fr it:))

Vrij said...

LoL Keshi :))

U should check this post of mine a couple of years ago.. I too went through a similarly tough time.

http://o3.indiatimes.com/vrij/archive/2006/01/04/400773.aspx

Sometimes, all we can do is laugh at such people..

Die Muräne said...

Hahaha, cool pictures! I love this 'the voices tell me to kill you' :DDD

Common Keshi, it's really time to marry someone! You must try harder :D lol

Sweetstickychewy said...

Loved the pictures you attached together with the post! Funny.:D loved the kilimanjaro part as well!;)lol

***'Keshi if you don't get married and have babies some day, it's like you were born invain into this world..cos your purpose as a woman on Earth, which is to be a wife and mother, would not be fulfilled and that's sad'.

I think thats bullshit.

Cheerios Gurl!:)

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi-you know what?Rather than trying to push you to matrimony,your Uncle was trying to convey his happiness at the birth of your cousin's baby.And,in that happiness-sharing mode,he wanted to tell you how much delight a baby's birth gives.

But,take it with a pinch of salt,and,go with your own instincts.Wait for the right guy,get married when your instincts say 'Yea,he's the one'(Albeit,it's always a gamble..hehe),and,inform Uncleji accordingly.

Till then,happy bachelorettehood!(Incidentally,I'm also a happy (forced)bachelor again in Dubai,u know-and,the freedom feels great at times,it gets irritating at time.Aaah..life and it's vagaries *goes off into musings mode*.TC!Cheerio!

Cinderella. said...

I so know this girl. Its very irriating really....

Just get done with the convo n forget it. Thats all.

Divkiran said...

***maybe I should ring up a Sperm Bank?

***perhaps go on a trip to meet the Zulu Tribe in Africa?)

You are such a good girl not to really say those thngs...i sometimes do say it you know....lol

Infact i have a post regarding this whole mariiage business too

I agree with u that there is so much more to life thn just marriage and this holds true for both men and women. But at the same time, companionship is what both genders need in thr life. And so it becomes a trick question... since companionship is vry important in life you obviously cant share it with just about anyone...and sighhhh!!! good guys are rare!!! lol

And why should u continue bloggin....simple, cuz i love readin it...!!! Hi hi hi

Divkiran said...

And i forgott to mention...i love the cattty catty pics ;)

Priya Joyce said...

hey budds.
had a gud time reading ur post luvd cat pics too.
wanna have some laugh visit ma new blog sharing my experiences

got me

vishesh said...

well just imagine this...i have ppl telling me i shld attend more weddings as i need to know the relatives to invite to mine! I mean i am only going to turn 17! anyway i already decided i will get someone i LOVE!lol :)

hmm...why u shld still blog?

1) you are the most truthful blogger :D

2) you have the best wealth here-friends...and you are also a part of wealth...and i don't want to lose you( ya sounds too materialistic doesn't it )

3) you are a fellow alien i know...are species is threatened and we need to keep in touch as much as we can :)

Southpaw unplugged said...

I can understand how irritating it gets when somebody gets on to this topic especially someone close, u cant even reply bluntly or even share what you exactly feel abt living single...

the_thinker said...

Umm...
I can only guess how giddy you girls might feel when ppl try to make you believe that you ppl cannot do without a man.
m single and my mumma keeps nagging me for getting married. She has given me an ultimatum saying if i don't get married then.....
As far a reason for you to blog is probably bring some smile to morons like myself whose life is otherwise dull.

Aneesh said...

The only thing I didn't understand keshi is why your friends all are getting husbands who either beat them or misbehave or ask dowry or whatever?????????????

I have lots of girl friends, I mean FRIENDS, and most of them are married, some are getting married right now, and I still keep contacts with lots of them, I never heard this type of experience from them, trust me and we were close enought so, they simply won't pretend they are happy.

BTW, living single is not a sin and it's completely a personal choice how to live. But my personal opinion is to live each and every stage of life, as a kid, as a teenager, as a youth, as a father/mother ........

'coz there is only one life and to enjoy it we'll get only once chance and by the time we regret it'll be too late.

Urv said...

The best reason to blog is to write a post like this and "accidentally" give the blog url to uncle T. Loved the 'What I wanted to say part' and the pics :D

Anindita said...

You are not alone in this! There is waay too much pressure from people who refuse to/ don't understand! Singledom rocks in my opinion but then again, it is just my opinion! =P

I am new to your blog, but I would say, since you blog for yourself, that is the only reason you need to be here! :)

Cheers. ^_^

Anindita.

Meghna said...

Hi Keshi di,
ummm.....maybe u shld find a good guy...if u d9ont mind me saying LOL!
Off matter:

Okies....I say this frm th heart....u shld continue coz ter r many otrs like me who mst have become kinda attached 2 u an ur blog! I actually dont have a elder real sis....so I take u and otrs as my real sis and seeing that I'm a teeneager an in that phase...I'm quite attached and used to u di and ur blog.....so please dont quit.....if not fr anythng else....for the sake of me...ur sissy!!!

Whitenoise said...

It's unfortunate that some people always have to impose their values on others. Good on ya for being yourself.

DewdropDream said...

ermm... try telling 'em that you've converted to a religion that doesn't allow marriage :D

Occasionally, I think it helps to show people the real picture of things, bursting their bubbles. They see marriages and babies as hppy events they want to be a part of. But how involved will they actually be if your marriage isn't working out, or those nights when the baby is keeping you up and you're basically unhappy with this decision you made? Sometimes it's best to be blunt and point things out rather than suffer in silence.

And hey, you've got a ton of fans here, why would you want to quit blogging? Sure you're blogging for yourself, but maybe what you need is a break, not a permanent out. What think you?

Hiren said...

u know wat ... i can so very totally relate to this conversation ... i too get subjected to a lot of such advices/sarcassms/warnings etc etc :)

reason to continue blog? Why wud u need a reason to continue doing something that u like ?? anyways if u want one - u shud continue blogging as now there are many others for whom "keshigirl.blogspot.com" has become an integral part of their lives :)

hv a gd day !!!

PrAcHi said...

Keshi keshi.. We live according to what society says.. what societies rules are. This is an unwritten rule! Sad but very very true!
Anyways, just let ppl around u go to hell. The most important thing is u live ur life in ur own way. And you will be happy. Not with or without any guy!
So don’t get pissed of.. More u will get irritated abt the things, mopre ppl will like to take out the topic. So chill and have happy happy life :)

Btw, i dont like cats much.. But loved all the pics :)

Nora said...

Keshi, relatives are all the same... I was asked the same question when I was single. Now that I'm married the question has changed to: When are you going to have kids? :)

Nora

Cinderella. said...

And as to why you should continue blogging, coz girl, you love it, thats all...!!!!

All else can go to hell !

Asha said...

They ALL do that Keshi! They even ask about my 17yr old girl whether we have anybody "in mind" for her! They tried to match make for me when I was 16yrs old!
Just IGNORE! Do what you want to do in life. We, who grew up in India, succumb to that pressure. I regret marrying at 22 sometimes, although life is now isn't bad.
Anyway, be yourself, that's the most imp thing!Happiness comes from within you, nobody brings it to you or you don't have to "settle down" for that!:)
Hugs to you. I am on blog break from tomorrow until Sept. Got LOT of work to do I have ignored so far. See you once in a while here, hugs. Enjoy blogging!:))

Nadine said...

You have such a good sense of humor. Hold out until your find the right man that will make you happy and you will love with your whole heart. It's only the way.

La vida Loca said...

ur uncle is righ dammit! and ur friend! what is the point in having a vagina if u dont have children, esp male children? modern scmordern! whats w/ ppl?

u need to stay coz we love u!

Aayushi~ said...

When are you getting babies?


Whoa.did he mean without marriage? lol..dirrty mind.eh :D

life will lead you to marriage..sooner or later.hehe :)

and don't ask me for any advices on sex/love/marriage
I'm hopeless :D

Jeevan said...

Wow cute keshi out there :)

women haves comes out of demand years back from the force of ignorance by there parents and society. Anyone can’t live with a partner? Sometimes we need to live the life to be born in the world as an individual for the purpose.

I have that thought many times alike u, but still life moves on. If I was thinking more about perfect, am not to do anything.

Priya said...

People can never keep their mouth shut and like to know everything isn't it. Curiosity is too much and giving advice is damn thing. I hate that.

Live your live. Either single or married everybody gets older oneday and look for secondhand teeth. Keep blogging as long as you enjoy writing Keshi.

Outdoorsy Girl said...

You should keep this blog because there are those of us out here still reading it (even if we seldom comment lately) and feeling exactly what you are feeling. (And man, can I ever relate to the conversation you had with your uncle! Add that plus my desire lately to find the one and you turn out feeling pretty crappy and wondering what the hell is wrong with youself!) I think you should keep the blog up for yourself, too, as it is a good way to vent AND you have all us out here who can relate so you know you're not alone in your feelings! :)

I hardly ever blog anymore. It's about once a month or twice, at best. I have thought about quitting all together, but I continue because I don't want to lose touch with all the wonderful people I met through this outlet of blogging. (you included!)

Metrosexual Monk said...

what?! no no no don't go away man!
you are one of the few who actually seem to talk sense be it anything.
it will be very disappointing if at all you do go away.
I know the 'dissapearing for good' feeling; Its your choice in the end.
although I can assure you the many times I've had it, all it does it temporarily blinds me into making things go the way they normally wouldn't and often ending regretting it.

so don't go! you're not perfect? who is, anyway! we all love you.

and don't even get me started on the whole society and its martial woes; google would have to buy extra data storage centres just to store my comments on it.

Dalicia said...

i love myself so much. that i don't think anyone could love me more...

hahaha...enjoy the life to the fullest. besides, being married is overly rated. in US, the divorce rate is so high. and you don't want to go through with your ex husband shit

Prakhar said...

"at this point I wanted to scream so loud that Uncle T would hear me across the seas and open his door thinking I'm there!"

LOL LOL!!...Good One :D....u go gal...being single too rox!!

Ria said...

Oh leave aside all tht crap tht the relatives force thru! I hav got such innumerable no. of questions from all around...i m glad my parents r cool abt it...else i wud hav gone mad!! And abt u being here.....i knw u want to b here gurl coz of the immense amt of love and admiration tht u get from all of us...and u so deserve it! So y leave something tht u so deserve. :) ;)

Jay said...

Well if it would make Uncle T feel any better I'll marry you. ;-)

But, you're pretty much the only one I'd marry. I might get married someday, but I kind of doubt it. I don't see why it's such a big deal. Maybe when I'm like 70 I'll marry some 22 year old babe and scandalize the whole town? hahaha! ;-)

Of course running off to Australia to marry a hot chick from the internet would be pretty scandalous too.

Why keep blogging? Cause you have so many people who love you who come here each day! And people who you love too! It's like a big blog family!

Helen said...

Keep on blogging if it's familiar, fun, and grounding. Stop when it's a chore, you get no enjoyment out of it, or you're putting up w/ abuse, but as with anything you have to work through the downs and enjoy the ups. It's a commitment to maintain bloggy-relationships

Marriage is like that, too, tell Uncle T, "Uncle T!! I blog, do you really think I have time to get married?"

Neeku said...

we gotta do something for such Uncles... Girl !

I have one too...

Aaarrggh !

stony said...

**...all I can say is I'm not perfect.**

Who is?

**one reason why I should continue to blog**

Because you are passionate about it. And you cannot run away from people who love your mesmerizing scripts.

**Staying single**

Why are you still...Why are you not able to... You are so well settled then why... Think of your younger sister... What will neighbours say... Look at all your friends... etc is all bullshit and deserves to be ignored.

Being married is not bliss in most cases. It is just a social obligation and the bullshit cited above is used just to cajole unwilling youngsters into marriage.

Your uncle may have faced similar advise perhaps at the age of 18 years. He is just continuing tradition. He cannot be blamed. But those who hurriedly agree should be.

Ghost Particle said...

because you blog for the moment, you blog what you want to blog and you make sense. i never have thought that you blogged to make others happy. you are just you. and this blog is keshi more, the rest of us less, like you said. so there is no reason to stop right?

:)

Anu said...

I feel as if I am in Ani's blog again! :).. Some pointers from a gal who was there 2 years back - just quietly says :its all in God;s hands and who are we to make desicions for him "..beleive me that shuts up 50% of the folks. Then the next 25% continue - say as per my astrologer its only when i am 40 (beleive me you'll love the drop dead silence) and to the final 25% say I dont know if all guys like bisexuals :D...hopefully that will clear up most questions

Please continue blogging, I thought your last two posts were mind blowing and its really nice for people from across the globe to get a glimpse into thoughts that mirror their own

comfortably numb said...

let me give u an analogy...
life=blog
marriage=widget/add-on

the widget serves its purpose only when it blends in well with ur blog seamlessly and works efficiently...similarly marriage has the potential to be a nice add-on only n only if it works well in ur life
just as v don't add a widget for d sake of it, v shud'nt marry for d sake of it.

y shud u continue blogging???
coz u have so many ardent readers n think about it..if u dont blog,then where would u write those things which u cant say to anyoe???
eg...ur inner thots in "pink' in dis post:)

comfortably numb said...

btw...chck comments section of ur last post
wrote a reply 2 u

Harry said...

Hi..don't get upset. I can understand what u would have gone thru while conversing with ur Uncle..it has just reminded me my sister's situation..
see u can't shut anyone's mouth..People will def say what they want to say... Either u really change them or let them the way they r..

I can understand that this disturbs, irritates the person...but u cannot escape from that situation..listen it and try to forget it...let them say what they want to say and let urself do what you want to do...

Why I want you to blog..coz I really love reading it...and afterall, this is the blog through which we know each other...right..

tkcre...

Harry

comfortably numb said...

also have a peek @ g-man's blog where i have replied to u as well
all for a healthy debate...*peace*

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

Girl I hope your Uncle does not get to read this! :P

Glad am not in India,or else would be hearing this question from somebody or the other all the time.Once a girl is on the higher side of 25 and still unmarried,it seems such a crime!

Well,some people will never change.Best thing is to just "mute" them when they talk such crap.Lol

Btw,cute pic of yours there :)

Coco said...

Why continue to blog?
To continue the friendship from afar!
Do what ever is best for you...
blog because you want to-
not because of what others say!

Do you feel you need a "break" from blogging? OR maybe change your blogging "style"- shorter posts AND don't feel that you have to respond to everyone's comment either!

Just be yourself!! : )

I come here, to your site, to see how Keshi is doing...
to see what my friend in Australia is up to these days : )

Hugs & Blessings

ps
tell your uncle that it's much easier to buy a house, or a car, than it is to find a "good" man who will love, treasure, and respect you!!

Ne said...

I have to agree with most of the people here! DON'T get married until Keshi Girl aka my sis is ready!

I am happy single and with someone! I decide my happiness! Let the phone conversations go in one ear and out the other! I still do with my ancient Jewish family members!! haha!

They want me married like Yesterday! haha!!

You cannot stop blogging, I run to get to your page to see what is popping off for the day!! I love the realness and the fun I have over here! I unwind very well here after work.

Love ya sis!

Ne

mutleythedog said...

Well I will marry you just to shut them up ! And ...obviously just on paper ahem...

fingers said...

You must keep blogging until you meet a man, get married and have many, many, many children !!!
Blogging will occupy your mind, protecting you from impure thoughts...and typing will occupy those idle fingers, which may otherwise stray into forbidden areas...

I have just realized that there is NO way you can satisfy people. Have been saying this to too many people lately, and here goes again.
The minute you are born, they want you to recognize them. then they want you to smile, then they want you to walk and talk and go to school. then they want you to get a job, then get married, then have kids, then ask you when your kid is going to walk and talk and go to school...arrghhhhhhhhh!!!!

I have been married for 6 months now, and have been getting the "when-are-you-giving-us-good-news" for the last 4 months or so. EVERY time they ask me that, I tell them point blank (the same ppl, over and over) that we don't want kids, so please do not expect it from us, and don't ask us again. But I guess they have short term memory.

Last week my sister was going on and on about how she is worried about her son, he doesn't listen, he's not doing well in school, blah-blah-blah, and in the very next breath, so do you have any good news for me. I asked her, didn't I give you my answer the last time you asked me? and what is "good" about it, you tell me? you want me to rant about kids too? you feeling too lonely doing it alone?

sorry keshi, am totally blasting off here, this just hit a raw nerve. because someone asked me half an hour ago, at work, when are you having kids!

aneri_masi said...

and you gotta keep blogging, girl! how else are we going to get our daily dose of "sense-mixed-with-humor"!

deepsat said...

sometimes their concern becomes a selfish obsession. just hug them and pacify them. tell them not to worry!!! i have been thru this and even now when my uncles & aunts ask me, i tell them "oh i got married long back. didn't you know? didn't you get the invitation"!! They get pretty disgusted, but then shuts them for sure!!

why u shud be here? well, this is ur space u share with others without prejudice. ur words r honest! and that makes all the difference!

cheer up!!
;-))

Suma said...

awww...girl, this is always gonna happen...people assume that they have a right to your life...even tho they think they are being concerned for you...so do what feels right and bear with them, 'cos they do care for you too, however misguided it feels

as for blogging... its a good outlet and fun too, it is where you have met so many of your pals...in the end it does depend on you...

aneri_masi said...

ok, and now that I have cooled off a little bit...totally loved your post :)
I can't believe someone actually said it to your face that your life's in vain if you're not a wife and mother! yikes!

lets see...when Uncle T asks you the next time...just tell him, the milkman refused your proposal!

Silvara said...

A friend just posted a note realting to EXACTLY this on Facebook - I'm gonna share coz I think you can use this. Just make sure you say them with a stright face :P

Some Great Answers to That Stupid Question:

* I was hoping to do something meaningful with my life.
* What? And spoil my great sex life?
* Because I just love hearing this question.
* Just lucky, I guess.
* My fiance is awaiting his/her parole.
* I'm waiting until I get to be your age.
* It didn't seem worth a blood test.
* I already have enough laundry to do, thank you.
* Because I think it would take all the spontaneity out of dating.
* I'd have to forfeit my billion dollar trust fund.
* They just opened a great singles bar on my block.
* What? And lose all the money I've invested in running personal ads?
* We really want to, but my lover's spouse just won't go for it.
* I don't want to have to support another person on my paycheck.
* Why aren't you thin?
* I'm married to my career, although recently we have been considering a trial separation.
* (For Single Mothers) Because having a husband and a child would be redundant.

Hahahhaha


And why u should keep blogging?? Because it's a part of you... :)

Ashu said...

Last thing first, i feel you should blog cos you are honest, you dont have any inhibitions, you call a spade a spade. you give a damn to thhe messers around you and above all you give a lotta strength to many ppl out here.....

and abt the convo, ignore it. marry when you want to, not for sake of relatives. (No offence meant)

Keshi said...

ok Dee I cried reading abt ur sis. Not cos I felt sorry for her, but cos she's my hero too! HUGZ to ur sis. plz say that I ADMIRE her courage and great outlook to life, besides what she had to go through.


And she's right. She does not need a Marriage to make her happy. Cos she's seen more LIFE than many ppl wud ever see in their entire lives! Ur sis knows what true HAPPINESS is.

**My perception is married guy and gals (if gals are working) are perceived to be responsible and mature when they get married.


does ur perception mean it's the truth abt every married person?




**Single people are (perceieved to be) irresponsible, immature, high nosed, lame idito, duck brained, fool, insane, naieve, idiot, uncaring, unwanted..

at 23? wow thats so young! And d u think u made a good decision? I dun mean to question ur marriage. Im just asking. R ya happy in Marriage, than u wud hv been when u were Single?



** She (as well as her parents) prefer to skip family functions and weddings since they don't want a repeat of this conversation.

r ya serious?? omg thats soooo lacking self-confidence! I pity them. But it must be harder in India. The Society is a total Bitch there, like in Sri Lanka.



**1) Its a release of emotion which you can't always tell people who are very close to you.

so true girl!



**2) Its way cheaper than paying for a shrink.

haha cute one! I agree too. And I did a post on that too..a while back.




**3) And yes you do make a difference...

aww what u said means alot to me SMM. tnxx n HUGZ! I feel there's a purpose here too. We all make a difference in each others' lives by sharing our lives thru posts.



**4) You have made friends in the blogworld.

yes definitely! Friends that I can count on 24hrs, anytime, anywhere! unlike offline friends hehe.



**5) This blog is a part of you.

**Rather than trying to push you to matrimony,your Uncle was trying to convey his happiness at the birth of your cousin's baby.


I know that...I cud sense it that he was overjoyed by the birth of his new grandchild. But that doesnt give him the right to make me feel like a product on the shelf that should be bought soon by male product, right? LOL Amit!

Mystique Wanderer said...

hmm hmm hmm...jst imagine what if one day u pick up the phone and tell him...uncle i've decided am having babies (while u're still single)...now that is something that will be rocker to the old chap.... :P

The old chap does have certain points...and he speaks from his age old wisdom...dudette ure right now young, energetic living wid folks...blah blah blah...one day ure frnz will get married and get busy wid their own families...and u'll find ure folks are no longer there...and that being a topper at ure job isn't such great fun...and at tht point of time...u will not be able to turn back the wheel...

i agree with the lady also...being a mother is a single most important thing a woman can do...coz no matter how much he tries...a man has not been given the power to do it....

Now talking some contemporary stuff....i have a whole bunch of frnz who are in their early thirties and have just started to get in the realm of wanting to settle down...its the dynamism of the changing world...from girls getting married as kids...to just after school, to jst after college...to now well into their professional careers...its something ure uncle may not fathom...but thats how things work..

and then there are plenty of ppl who are not getting married at all...earlier their used to be a lot of dependencies...work wasn't so much...so after work u needed time to spend wid someone...women couldnt work..so they needed 'a provider' to take care of them..but now with work pressures heightening...and women as financially independent as men...the 'need' to be in a relationship has taken a slight battering (given that it is estimated last night 25000 marriages happened in delhi..i wont say too much of a battering...jst slight )

lastly as a personal view...i'm not sure i want to bring kids into this world...i really don't see what hope do i offer them...pollution...corruption...wars...blah blah blah...i'd rather go to an orphanage and give some hope to those unfortunate enuf to have entered this world...

and my personal stance on marriage is well known...i'm thinking of persuading bush to quit the manhunt for laden...and start a woman hunt for me...

Keshi said...

o cmon not ONLY me. U TOO VISH!



**2) you have the best wealth here-friends...and you are also a part of wealth...and i don't want to lose you( ya sounds too materialistic doesn't it )


lol d u feel sad for sounding like a HUMAN (materialistic). dun worry, its a need...a precious need...FRIENDSHIP I mean. HUGZ!




**3) you are a fellow alien i know...are species is threatened and we need to keep in touch as much as we can :)

Keshi said...

ty Aneesh!


**The only thing I didn't understand keshi is why your friends all are getting husbands who either beat them or misbehave or ask dowry or whatever?????????????


not ALL Aneesh. SOME of em are. And they totally confide in me. And some of your friends may not be telling u the TRUTH. Alot of ppl in India/Sri Lanka dun confide that easily abt their personal lives. But ppl here do :) They dun care abt judgements.



**I never heard this type of experience from them, trust me and we were close enought so, they simply won't pretend they are happy.


ok...maybe ur married friends r much BETTER off than mine?



And yes I do hv some very happy married friends too. but there's nothing to blog abt them, is there? :)



**But my personal opinion is to live each and every stage of life, as a kid, as a teenager, as a youth, as a father/mother ........

so ur follwing a pattern? boring. :)




**'coz there is only one life and to enjoy it we'll get only once chance and by the time we regret it'll be too late


Not everyone regrets Aneesh. Cos everyone thinks differently. If we go to follow what someone else is doing, then it becomes a chore...not a passion.

**try telling 'em that you've converted to a religion that doesn't allow marriage :D

hahahaha good one!! Im really gonna use it next time. I really am!




**They see marriages and babies as hppy events they want to be a part of. But how involved will they actually be if your marriage isn't working out, or those nights when the baby is keeping you up and you're basically unhappy with this decision you made?


so true! And I dun mean I dun want babies cos of that. But ppl ask u to get married etc but the same ppl LAUGH at u when things go wrong. And even if they dun laugh, they cant really help u when things go wrong. Only u can help yourself.




**Sometimes it's best to be blunt and point things out rather than suffer in silence.


I agree. Next time Im gonna ask em how happy they r in thei r Marriages. Cos I know some arent.




**And hey, you've got a ton of fans here, why would you want to quit blogging? Sure you're blogging for yourself, but maybe what you need is a break, not a permanent out. What think you?

**being a mother is a single most important thing a woman can do...coz no matter how much he tries...a man has not been given the power to do it....

**i'm not sure i want to bring kids into this world...i really don't see what hope do i offer


Ur point above stated that the single most IMP thing a woman can do is give birth, and now u say u dun want kids? So it's not so IMP after all is it?

52 replies later she finds time to reply to me...and then she wants me to dart off arrows halfway across the world to her...grr grr

***now ain't u glad ure single rather than deal wid all the emotional tugs love comes wid :P

i think i shud have written less ambiguously...the first part is where i comment on why the ppl spoke wat they spoke...

though this mother thing i do agree wid...but let me rephrase...i'm not saying it is absolutely essential to do it...but it is the single most powerful thing they can do...give life...come's quite close to being god don't u think...

the last two are my perosnal point of views...

not sure if the ambiguity has cleared up or increased :P

crasiezt said...

LOL your uncle is haliarious!

And as for why you should blog... Girl what kind of a dumbass question is that?

KAYLEE said...

Thanks it was a suicide unfortanately :(

Divkiran said...

Hey...Firstly...catty Keshi is the Cattiets!!! lol

And secondly, marriage is more like a name or rather a social approval given to you to be with the one u chose as ur life partner... if u don wanna get married as in the ceremony and all the jazz but still find someone to spend ur life with, thn go ahead...

As long as u n ur prtner are ok with it n r not havin kids...its all good...complexity arises the moment a child comes in to the pic... and well, thts a whole new topic - bringin up children so lets not go thr :)

Keshi said...

hahaha Crasiezt yeah I can be a big dumbass sometimes. HUGZ!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

awww Kaylz thats so v sad! :(

Keshi.

Keshi said...

lol Divkiran how abt staying single after all? :)

Keshi.

Aaarti said...

hey Keshi

1st off,keep blogging, cos you write about all the stuff that we enjoy reading and most of the times are able to relate to~~ :) i wish i could make time to write abt all the stuff going thru my head...

2nd, i completely understand how you feel[abt the whole world talking about marriage like its the do all, end all.] am sick n tired of the que's as well.. and nowadays people know the answer they get, so they dont broach that subject with me.. i jus give it back to them saying "dont u have anything else to talk to me about?" Aaargghhhh.

we shd all form a group and go live life our way and tell "buzzz off" to the rest of the society~~~ [Gawd, i hate that word- society= keep having tifs at home about how we are the ones who created the damned society and how today we are scared n living life to please the F@#**&^ society..."..]

KAYLEE said...

Yep it is :( Wrote a post on it!

Keshi said...

hey Aarti HUGS!


**"dont u have anything else to talk to me about?"

thats actually a good line to use. tnxx for that! :)


yes the Society is fucked up big time. LOL!



**"buzzz off"


haha I like it! Mebbe we should call our Group the 'BUZZ OFF' group so the Society gets the msg when they ask us who we r and we say 'BUZZ OFF'. :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Kaylz I'll come ard soon.

Divkiran said...

Keshi said...

Keshi said...

Stygian tnxx!

But why is ur comment in caps? r ya screaming at me? LOL!


No I dun agree with what u said. AGE has nothing to do with it. A Mistake is nothing more/less than a mistake. So if someone older than u did something wrong to u, saying Sorry wud be GRACEFUL.

Its not a matter of not being VERY NICE as u put it. It's a matter of really feeling sorry for what happened, irrelevant of AGE.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

And u deleted ur comment Stygian? WHY?

Dun u believe in what u say?

wut r u hiding from! Im actually sick of it. :)


Keshi.

utopia said...

of course u shud keep blogging keshi. its ur way of expressing yourself, your creativity and maybe even a vent out for your emotions and a way of expression.
pleaseeee there'll always be people who'll question your choices and beliefs. if you know that u r sure of what u want then u could turn a deaf ear.

to be honest i don't fancy myself single at the age of 45 but i do know people who'd happily do that cos they are happier. its better living your life alone than living with a mistake for the rest of it.i also know women who are unhappy and dissatisfied cos they never got married for whatever reasons and loneliness is killing and the "i am so happy being single" facade really doesn't seem to work cos people see through it.
i think its just the choices we make. if u r happy just don't bother. there'll always be wagging tongues.
cheers! :D

maverick said...

@keshi....hmm...u really want to scratch around on ur blog :D

Pinku said...

hehehe!!!
If I were u I would tell him 'Unk there is this girl in my office and i really like her, will u be sweet and talk to her parents. I would love to live with her.' Beleive me he will never ever speak about marriage again.

AmitL said...

Haha..Keshi,of course I enjoy being freer,but,than,that's not all of the time.:)

Re. the answer to your question,why I think you should be there at ur blog,well,the answer's simple- where you're concerned,it's a nice outlet,a nice way to express yourself,and a nice place to know that there're people round the world who care.From my side,well,it's great knowing someone who writes well,someone who's warmhearted and frank in expression!:) Does that answer your question?Hope to see u around for the next few decades.:)

PrAcHi said...

hummm.. what to do.. ppl around us like to pock in our lives! Esp. a girl's life.. *sigh

Sun Follower said...

I think you should be here because you want to be here!

Aayushi~ said...

Without marriage?

Don't you think you'll have probs on adjusting or actually the other way rnd..the society of India/Sri Lanka won't accept it?

Deepti said...

I can absolutely relate to this .. each time I see my relative's number on my phone, I dread this damn routine . If after non -stop questioning I snap at some "poor soul", it is attributed to my growing arrogance due to " financial independence". Its stll 13th century mind set :(

τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя said...

sissyy

abt ..married or single :O

hmmmmm
hmmmmmm
hmmmmmmmm

still finking...:-s


and to the ques y shud u b here???
ans: coz I love u loads ....simple :)
*hugz*

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

I forgot to add why you should continue to blog.It's because :

*You cannot run away from who you are

and

*It's injustice to oneself to stop doing what they love

Scribblers Inc said...

damn thats mad!!!go on...enjoy your singledom...you would definitely enjoy a lot of attention from envious souls who are married, OR better still want to marry you!!:)

Aneesh said...

keshi,

Yah, I agree. But, I'm not following the majoriy. it's what I like. I don't let anyone else decide my life but me. I've lived the way I wanted till now..Yah everyone's have their own likes, dislikes, right.

"ok...maybe ur married friends r much BETTER off than mine?"

Haha, I would like to think that my friends got better husbands than yours :)

"Alot of ppl in India/Sri Lanka dun confide that easily abt their personal lives."

Yah, may be, but not my friends, I know them :)

"so ur follwing a pattern? boring. :)"

Haha, very funny, I don't think following a pattern is boring, as long as we know how to keep it interesting :)
Yah, when we were a kid, we use to go to school everyday-- that's a pattern, now was it boring to go to school?
Then we went to college, got a lot of friends-- that's a pattern, was that boring?
Now, we all are having cell phone, we all are blogging-- that's a pattern, is that boring?

"Not everyone regrets Aneesh."

Frankly I don't know, or think anyone will know, any person who never regretted in their life. And we all are too young to regret :), we are yet to see life, isn't it?

PS: Just my views, keshi, Be cool :)

rayshma said...

a. honestly? u shouldn't get married till u find the person that's right for you. someone that you don't want to live without - though u very well can! and heyy, i was single and VERY happy.. so i don't think that being married is the only way to be happy. marriage makes you happy only when u marry the right person.
b. been reading ur blog only recently. but it lends a different perspective. it makes me think. and i think u shud continue blogging coz i like to read what u write. yeah, yeah.. very self-centered answer that. but heyy, it's true!

Am In Trance said...

Hehe.. Don't Worry..

Friendly Stranger said...

Hahah!
Every household has the same story.....
When you are single at so called marriageable age, people consider you as if you are an alien.(Not my own experience though:D TG, I still have plenty of time to take my kids to school..LOL)

Why Dear Keshi should keep blogging?

Well, there are plenty of reasns for the same...
1) Blogsville will truly miss the charm of above-board posts if you quit.
2) I'm (Infact many bloggers are) so much used to see you commenting on my (their) blog(s) on the same day that our blogs wouldn't sustain without you.
3) Bloggers wouldn't have any role model to look at if you leave. (My unresolved query from past few decades is how do you manage to get over 200 comments on every post?:D LOL)
4) On personal front, I would miss my first blogsville friend and a true well-wisher :)

So be there and keep bringing smiles on our faces!
