As we stand on the threshold of thirty years, dear husband, don’t think that the time to make promises is long gone. Don’t think that efforts in relationships are made by the young and heady ones. Don’t think that we can take each other for granted even though we are comfortable with each other. Yes, dear husband, it’s time to make a fresh batch of promises to me. Here are the kasams and vaadas that I would like you to make to me…
Each time I will leave the bathroom dirty,
you will not turn around with a frown
not tell me I can never change
and ask me to wipe the counter or pick the hair.
Each time I will watch a sappy Hindi movie,
you will not tell me my taste is bad
I know those movies are stupid
but my intelligence also needs a break 😉
Whenever I will buy one more sari or salwar kamiz
you will not look shocked or say I have so many
you will understand that I am helping the economy
and that I am keeping your money in circulation.
When I want to change my cellphone
because the neighboring Mrs. Khanna has a new one
you will understand that I am your pride and status symbol
and you need to keep me up-to-date always.
When I drool at holiday pictures in magazines
and ask to go somewhere yet again
You will know that traveling makes us kind and wise
and that we only have this one life to live it up 🙂
So, my dear husband, these are the fresh set of kasams and vaadas that you have to make today to nurture our loving bond forever. Thank you to the world of blogging for helping me express so many of these deep feelings and emotions in such a constructive way. It is a great medium and way to explore what we feel and present it to the world out there. And what makes it special is that today is women’s day! Let me end this post with this beautiful quote:
A spiritual partnership is between people who promise themselves to use all of their experiences to grow spiritually. They use their emotions to show them how to create constructive and healthy and joyful consequences instead of destructive and unhealthy and painful consequences.

And Now, I present the wacky Ranvir Singh to you! 🙂
