It was a time to meet new people also, at least for me. Most of my relatives stay far, only a few close relatives are near. So, frankly, I didn't know who is who and was surprised to see lot of unseen faces who claims they are living just a few meters from my house. I wonder, how they managed to hide themselves from me or how I managed to hide from them? I don't want to talk about the marriage 'coz it went like any christian wedding. I was frequently going in and out of the church when I get bored by the priests, to meet my friends.One another interesting thing I felt is the change in people, their mentality and attitude towards us and ours towards them. Right from our childhood we learned that certain neighbors are our enemy 'coz they argued with us for simple things, which sometimes even reached police station LOL. we never talked to them, despite the fact that some of them were our relatives. This enmity started before even we were born and just continued till now. But, now times have changed. We grew up. Their kids grew up. When their kids' marriage came up, they invited us, putting a break to the long lasting enmity. We also responded in a similar manner. It is said that there is no injury that time cannot heal. So, it is proved. But, I guess, certain injuries will leave scars that even time cannot erase. So, in short, it was a time of change, unexpected change and surely that was both exciting and surprising.
Now, about my cousin, she and her bro grew up with me and my bro. We were like sisters and brothers. I mentioned about our kid gang in one of my previous posts, no need to say she and her brother were the members of the gang.
Someone who had played with us, who was one among us, just on one day, became someone else's. Its strange, what all things we need to face in life. 'N my bro too is moving on to another phase of his life. My parents had already started harassing me to marry, where as I don't think I'm ready for it :). Why can't they allow me to live in peace? LOL
I don't know whether I am able to express my feelings for my bro and cousin. I don't believe in perfect or ideal partners, problems are sure to creep up sometime. it's all about how you prioritize and value each things giving each what they deserve. Well, I am not blabbering more 'coz I don't have the experience or maturity to advice people about these things. After all, I do believe in fate.
