Wedding Bells on its Way…..


Ever swore that you will never do something because it is against your character? I wouldn't -for the love of world- show that I am excited seeing food coming my way in the restaurant. Something like this.. That’s how exactly I feel now as I pen this blog.

I never thought I had even an ounce of excitement in me for arranged marriage. Marriage itself was a far cry in my to-do list. My career seemed to be hindering with marriage on cards. As means to an end, I thought I should eliminate this hurdle and the only way was by getting married.
But as groom profiles pour in, I started contemplating different possibilities. It is as thrilling as reading a gripping Sidney Sheldon novel. A page turner. A jittery high. Eyes alight. And to intensify the entire rush of emotions, came two songs.

“Manamaganin Sabatham” and “Manapennin Sathiyam”. I have been listening to them on loop for past two days. Such Beautiful lyrics with deep meaning. I am so stuck to them. I get goose bumps each time I listen to the songs. But that’s not where the emotions stop.

There is a new found excitement in me. About Wedding. The thrill to turn pages and find Mr. X. Not because its means to an end. But because it’s a new chapter in life. Probably, the most important too.  Jeez! I sound so cheesy even to myself. Many of my friends might read this with their jaws hitting the ground with disbelief. Some clapping their hands in glee with I-told-you-so look. Some with a disapproving look crinkling their nose and upturned pout.
My alter ego is flabbergasted with what is happening to me. Dreams, hopes, blush, shy (yeah, you read it right), grace, patience, nervous, expectant, happy, shocked, too-busy-to-care, lost-in-dreamland, scared-to-death, confused, excited, etc. etc etc. (No thesaurus used for word chain!)



Well. The writer in me is happy. She gets to write about different things that have never been on top of her priority list. There was a time once when I have asked with a disgusted look, “Why Love is the most frequent thing poets and writers write about. Is there a scarcity of topic?” I look like a fool now!

I am appalled with this blog itself. Sruthi talking about getting married? What more, she is excited about it! This is so not me… But then what am I? Life shapes you up differently at each stage. You look like a thorn carved out raw out of stone. But as time goes, you realize it’s a rose being sculpted. What it might morph to in future is a thriller. A nail biting gripping novel with unknown pages next. Enjoy the page, expect nothing and life will seem beautiful. Well, somewhere there has to be the style touch of old Sruthi right!


Humming the wedding vows of “Manapennin Sathiyam”, I am penning this blog with a ridiculous grin and sardonic smirk playing alternate. Fingers crossed and awaiting my Prince.. Nope.. My King! (Who wants a boy? We want a MAN!).

Warped Love!



It is abstinence that comes naturally
For I perceive this world different
Weird might it sound to all others
Though acceptance isn't in my wish list

See world from my eyes
Hear words from my ears
Contemplate thoughts from my brain
You might begin to understand- if wiser

I am no saint to renounce
I am no martyr to sacrifice
I am just another human
With different nerve wiring

It’s really intimate to say
It’s not yet another day
Sure there is another way
But honestly I am jay

Is the concept so complicated?
That love is simpler than breathing
Bundle those ancient inhibition
You will find the concept liberating

Universal is the concept of love
Imprisoning is the law of man
Keep your vision longer
Assumptions will be a dangler

Words are definitely futile
Love is personally customized
What is right in your book
Is consciencely wrong in another’s

Don’t fret over explaining
Wasting time in justifying
Free style it does take
Like the grammar of this poem

It has the sinuous flow
Like the path of a new river
It finds its own way
Defying the laws of others

It is nature
It is scandal
It is bliss
It is love!
