The Big Day


Brimming with fear, Pari took slow steps towards the dais. The day she had always had elegant dreams of, was here. Her ‘Big’ day. Only that it wasn’t anything big for her to celebrate. After pushing her heart towards undoable damages with a series of ups and downs in relationships, she had finally given in to her parents’ request of settling with a groom of their choice, a choice which she was completely unsure of.
Sitting down at her place facing the holy fire, she felt all her desires and dreams, which she had been watering all these years, gradually dulling away in the flame. A tear escaped her eye, but before she could feel it on her palms, there lay a strong hand. Totally perplexed, Pari turned towards the source, only to meet two deep eyes, full with love and assurance to pour into her hollow life as Akshay gave her broad smile.  At that very moment, she thought that may be this is the perfect epilogue to her dreams.

And she knew , her parents can never go wrong in finding her the right.

  1. Very nicely written Srish! But there's one thing - parents do go wrong sometimes. I know a situation, in my very own family where my aunt made a terrible mistake of finding the wrong groom for her daughter. Of course she thought he was right. But now, she repents as her daughter is considering divorce.
    Marriage is a holy bond and one has to be sure of what he/she is doing. :)

    Hugs!
