I am sitting with a friend and highly annoyed. She is going on with her rant as I continue with this stupid post because she is pissing me off with her rishta bakwaas: [Urdu and English]
Mera rishta aya.. Main nay na ker di. Waisay I wouldn’t like to get married because men oppress women. Per mera rishta aya. His family was like this and that. They asked me this that questions. They rejected me because I am fat. O God, my parents wouldn’t let me breathe because of these rishtas. I am clearly not interested.
I entered home and my parents were like lerka daikh lo. I went out of house right away. Then there was some other rishta. O god, so many rishtas. I didn’t say yes. They rejected me. I have been rejected. I can’t go through this painful rishta thing. HAHAHAHA this rishta I had, man such a funny family. I am sharing my rishta story here. O god, the potential rishta’s father asked me beti what you plan to do? I was like yeah as if you really care. Then there was this rishta.
Rishta. Rishta. Rishta. Rishta.
Sounds similar, no? I bet one of your very good/close/obnoxious friends would have such a never ending overwhelmingly bullshit story to share every time you meet her. “Her” being very exclusive because I haven’t seen men boasting about it. They only work on making up stories like ‘Yaar wo bachi, ek dum fit. Number day gayi bhai ko”. Yeah. All my friends do that. I like how they wouldn’t shut up about it knowing that I clearly know that no such thing has happened.
Anyways, so coming back to this friend of yours. Yes I know how things go about when it comes to getting woman a husband in our society. It isn’t easy. You have to fake everything about your personality to make an impression that you might turn out to be a very good wife or bahu which you eventually fail at because things aren’t that dreamy in a married life. I am not married but I speak out of many cases around me. The typical showing up in front of random people and wait for their rejection/acceptance and their extremely weird questions is an excruciating task but one has to go through it.
But OMYGOD with such women who would go on and on and on AND ON about their rishta stories. I mean if you are in so much demand and there are so many rishtas around, why don’t you get married my child? Why making someone’s life hell with your stupid extremely stupid rishta jargon which eventually ends on ‘Oh I was rejected”. You know what? People might not be very interested in knowing your rishta episodes because they are so lame and useless. Don’t you wish some privacy regarding such matters? Do you really feel comfortable sharing your rishta episodes with an end result of rejection? Or are you trying to gain sympathy for something that happens to hundreds of girls here in Pakistan? You see, you need to calm down friend. Yes, rishta hai. Yes you are good looking. Yes you are fat. Yes you have been rejected. But hey, there is nothing so noble about it that you would go about it on and on and on.
What kind of behavior is that? Why wouldn’t you shut up? And that too, forever? No, please don’t give me a PMS excuse because you can’t possibly be PMS-ing at every rishta episode.
