The Half Time Fundas

Some says it’s the best time in anyone's life. The times when anticipation and excitement can overcome the normality of life, making you feel it’s greener than ever before. It’s like the moment before the first ball is balled in a test match, the moments you spent inside an examination hall waiting to get the question paper, the moments during those interval time of a suspense movie where the images of first half is still fresh in your mind and you are anxiously waiting for the all important second half… Yeah! I am talking about those beautiful moments towards the end of your much celebrated bachelorhood.

Many considers marriage as single most important occasion in life...’Un Comparable!!!!’ , they say. Well really??? I posed this question to one who is more matured, more informative and smarter than I myself is, my genius little Mind. As always he started to give his own fundas... yaaawn!!!

"Well look dude, many people have many definitions about marriage, for someone it’s about getting a soul mate to share all your little happiness and some bigger tragedies together, for some it’s all about adding more responsibilities to your already irresponsible pitiful life. Someone, if you ask about marriage, will say 'it’s how it always was and how it should be' and for someone it’s just a license to some free sex. And there are some morons who consider it as the first and foremost point in their list of 'How to get rich without getting sweat???' ...""Heiiii hold on!!" I interrupted. "I'm honestly not concerned about what the hell all these guys think. I am not yet a social thinker or a survey agent. Tell me what you feel!!! ".

Keeping his eyes on the infinite sky he resumed after a brief pause "My idea about this whole thing is a little different!!!”"I know it will be ... just pour out the %#%$ gyaaan out of your mouth!!""Ok here it comes. Let’s assume the average life expectancy of an average man is close to Sixty years which on bisecting will give you Thirty years. Now considering marriages of most males happening around 30 -, may be a couple of years more or less, we can safely assume that Marriage is the point that will divide your life in to two halves, right? ""Agreed ... please continue""If you go to the people who had chance to see both halves and ask them which half was better for them, I can bet that more than 90% will say the first half. Those beautiful and innocent child hood days, the sweet memory of your first love, those crazy things you did when you were young and energetic. Second half is usually a more serious, responsible and routine stuff.""So what are you coming to ....?” I again interrupted.

"For me marriage is a challenge... When you lie on your death bed with all the grey hair and lean tired old body, just moments before your journey to next world, a question will arise inside you 'Hei which half was better ?' ... Marriage for me is a challenge to make you confidently say that 'Dude ,first half was great, it was fun and memorable.. But second... it was even better!!!”"Wow ... that was not all that bad ... compared to some really crappy and boring fundaas you gave before. But is it really possible?""Well I sometimes think Marriage and communism has similarities""What the hell!!!”"Let me explain, Communism promises you of a new world, a world without injustice. But once you reach that ideal new world, communism will no more be required and people will start to ditch it. This will result in the dark capital forces coming strongly again. So the aim of communism is not to reach its ultimate destination, but the aim is to move in a path which will get you to that destination. In other words, it’s a classic case of journey itself becoming the destination!!!!... And should I need to explain about marriage in this context OR you are already confused? ""Well that’s enough for me to digest now.... let’s put a break!!!.. But finally a million dollar question.. you give all these gyaan, but are you actually prepared for this 'big' challenge in all ways !!!!"He gave me back that trade mark smile and told calmly.

"Dude... I have told you many times before... and let me repeat it again …. as far as challenges goes, I am always BORN READY !!!! ...."
