For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
The other day i attended a marriage ceremony after a really long time. And after being a part of the ceremony and celebrations i realized what i had missed on for so long. The priest who preached the sermon narrated true life incidents in such humour that the entire crowd in the church just burst into laughter at times. He did stress on the importance of God & Prayer in a successful married life.
One of the humorous jokes which i had heard before but nonetheless brought a smile went something like this:
A married couple had an argument some days back and they hadn't been talking to each other since then. However, they were giving each other written notes. One evening the husband gave his wife a paper where it said: "Wake me up tomorrow morning at 7 am.” The next morning the husband woke up and saw that it was 9 am. He got very angry, but as he turned around he found a note on his pillow saying: "Wake up honey, it's 7 o'clock!"
Also after going to the hall the compere out there also had some advice for the husband. He said if you want to have a successful married life, honestly accept when you are in the wrong to your wife. And when you are right............. just stay quiet.
It's really wonderful being part of such a wonderful ceremony...The vows which the husband & wife take in the church wherein the groom says: I (...), take you (...) to be my wife. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life. And the bride responds by saying: I (...), take you (...) to be my husband. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.
Marriage is really one of the most wonderful events in a person's life. Someone has rightly gone on to say that "Remember that a successful marriage depends on two things: Finding the right person and being the right person". Love between couples is definitely important; however i feel a happy married life surely calls for a lot of commitment and concern for each other.
So what do you guys feel?

The other day i happened to be at a bus stop near Santacruz signal in the evening. There was a couple and their child who were sitting on the road behind the bus stop. The woman was cooking food in the open by lighting wood and papers. I cannot even call them slum dwellers as there was basically nothing around them for cover. That's when i seen the husband speaking on the cell phone and then passing on to his wife. It looked really strange and people at the bus stop definitely gave them a glance or two. Sensex crossing the 18k mark and all doesn't make much sense to me. Don’t know if i can even say India Shining or whatever makes a difference to this road side family. Really can’t understand how these guys afford a cell phone when their lives itself is MOBILE living on different streets of Mumbai every day…

It's really a pleasure watching you smile,
Though my PJ's are really sad most of the time,
It really feels as if the day has not been worthwhile,
When you are at a distance away from me a mile...
Ur smile could really brighten up anyone's day,
And this is not something i am pretending to say,
So remember a smile from u is wat some people eagerly wait for,
Hence getting to be around you, i consider myself lucky all the more...
So please keep smiling is all i can say....
