I speak less, I feel more. I find solace in being alone. So to be in love and want you, it takes a little effort. This isn't arrogance, it is my raw honesty. My heart finds comfort in silence; my voice isn't the strongest around people. See, I haven't let many into my life, and so I cannot tell you what I fear. I can however, lay bare my heart and tell you what I have to offer. Come find me if you understand.

I've always dreamed about my wedding day. Not because I'm big into weddings or getting married or anything, but because of the promise that came with walking down the aisle (yes, guys, I grew up watching waaaaay too many church weddings on screen). The vows two people in love make to each other as they look into each other's eyes and make the decision to stay in love forever. The promises aren't always big. They are tiny, but filled with meaning. And that's what made them beautiful.

Growing up is overrated and I think most of us would agree to that. Well, what's even worse is the fact that once you're out of college and you start working, people take it for granted that you'd definitely be interested in getting married and would like to settle down. Once they think you're ready for marriage, they start sending rishtas without even trying to know whether you're interested or not. Here are 10 thoughts you have then.

1. “What? Rishta? But why?”

You're plain tongue tied. You don't even know how to react to such a situation.

2. “I’m too young to get married. Or wait, am I old already?”

You feel as though you're way too young for marriage. Come on! Marriage calls for some maturity and you know for a fact that you haven't reached that stage. But you do realise that you're not a kid anymore.

3. “I am not ready for marriage yet. I can’t even think about it.”

You know it for sure that you aren't ready for marriage yet. You feel you need more time to take such an important decision.

4. “How can someone send a "rishta" for me? Huh! They definitely don’t know my true colours.”

You can't help but wonder as to why someone would want to get married to you or even send a rishta for you. You then tell yourself how messy you are.

5. “Shaadi! Wow! Shopping, dressing up, dancing and having fun! Sounds so exciting.”

You imagine yourself dancing to your favourite songs in your own Sangeet. It gets your super excited.

6. “Hell no! The functions would get over within a week and life would be doomed thereafter.”

After planning your wedding in your head, reality hits you hard and you realise that all the ceremonies and functions would end in less than a week.

7. “Marriage comes with a lot of responsibilities and I can barely manage to manage myself.”

Marriage obviously isn't a cake walk and it is bound to change your life drastically. You've somehow managed to look after yourself and the thought of actually having to take up other responsibilities scare you.

8. "Everyone around is getting married. Mera time aa gaya!”

You scroll through your Facebook and Instagram feed and you see at least one of your friends' wedding/pre-wedding/engagement pictures. You tell yourself that the time has come for you to step into another phase.

9. “So what? Let the world do what they want and I’ll do what I want to.”

You convince yourself that you need not follow anyone else's footsteps.

10. “I think I’m freaking out way too much. It’s just a rishta!”

You soon realise that it's just a rishta and your wedding isn't fixed yet.

I grew up watching waaaaaaay too many romantic movies. Movies that had me wishing for a fancy, foreign, white wedding. But then I actually started attending weddings and I quickly realised that traditional Indian weddings, with all their fun, music and colours is where the REAL goals are at. See, Indian weddings aren't just a celebration of love - they're a celebration of family, of lifetimes spent together, of fun, promises and new beginnings. They're everything weddings are supposed to be, and honestly - they make me want to have one even though I'M NO WHERE CLOSE TO READY. AT ALL.

I always thought weddings made for exhausting evenings of fake-smiling in uncomfortable clothes. Or at least that's what I learned from well...every romantic comedy EVER. But then the internet proved me wrong. Of course, I haven't gotten married yet, but I'm guessing that it's not all fake smiles. That the hopeless, romantic part of romantic-comedies...well that's true. Of course, I also learned that almost everything's better in black and white. Even true love.

I've always loved mehendi. It was literally my favourite thing about weddings till I found out that Parsis, traditionally, don't really wear mehendi. Of course, that didn't stop me from getting it done whenever I could. So I decided to stalk every mehendi page I could find on social media and find photos that filled my soul with glee. And also, you're welcome.
