Barbaadi.com

"Ah you?" ; she gave me a dirty look alright. She always does. But there was something very different in her tone today, something refreshingly different.
"Oh! Uncle's not at home? I'll come later" ; And I always do this....Yes, I try to run away. It's difficult I know...but then, she prefers it that way I guess. Modern day ladies. Sigh!
"No wait, come in..."- Did I hear it right? Can't be...I guess I have been plagued by auricular hallucination. 
But then I decided to take a chance....as if the vintage Yash Raj Films... "Palat...Palat...Palat" saga had transformed me into a believer. Believe me, it worked. She was standing right there at the door-step, her chortle didn't bear a characteristic glimmer of acrimony. That was astonishing indeed.

It all started about a month back when the match-making saga through Barbaadi.com managed to connect our families together; it was a general "parent-driven initiative"..pretty much superfluous you can say (though they claimed that this was the perfect age to get married). The lady (I must agree to this) was extremely pretty...and to quote my parents she was "Roope gune Saraswati" (Perfect in looks and endowment). 

Fair enough...off we went, our first real "escapade" and yes the "interview" session went pretty well...but the lady, my gut feeling said, didn't seem to be too impressed. Not that I'm a certain Desi George Clooney, but of course that doesn't strike me off, does it? Then why this serial ignorance?

"I hated your raunchy stubble, dude...I hated it from day 1...!!!" ; She explained sedately as I stepped closer...My clean shaven look had bowled her over.

*Goodness gracious me...it was all about that rugged look?* - I rubbed my cleanly-shaven chin in utter disbelief.

Barbaadi.com :- That's the moral of the story..
