11th Feb Sunday Morning 11:00 am
Maahi, a girl in her mid 20’s, her innocent face and her coy eyes itself explained a lot about everything that was running in her mind. While on her way to a Stranger’s home(Sahil’s home), she kept on murmuring
“Who the hell wakes up so early on pretty Sunday morning? Oh God..What am i gonna ask him? In next few minutes i would be scanned by everyone.I hope this one ends in one round itself”. The road to Sahil’s home was still 30 mins away so she chose to shut down the thoughts and take a nap.
On the other hand, Sahil just like Maahi was not prepared for the arrange setup. In between all the leg pulling was going at his home, he heard his excited brother screaming, “Bhaiya bhabhi has arrived”. Hearing this Sahil shouted at his brother and asked him to keep mum for next few hours.
At the Entrance, Elders started greeting each other and just then Maahi’s eyes met Sahil’s, and they smiled a little and glanced away.
While elders were trying to connect the dots of each other’s family, Sahil’s mom took consent of Maahi’s parents and asked Sahil to show Maahi his room(The common plot for the round 1 meeting).
ROUND 1: Sahil’s room
Sahil (Breaking the ice between them) : Hey Maahi, you know what, only thing I liked about arranged meeting is finally a girl has entered my room.
Maahi(Chuckled) : Her fear had now disappeared, Sahil’s ice breaking attempt succeeded. They both smiled.
Sahil : Maahi, let’s do 1 thing. You might have gone through my bio data and I almost have mugged up your’s so rather than asking the same things. Lets try something new. Let’s have a round of test.
Maahi: Sounds interesting..!! So you mean, we will ask the same set of questions of course has to be the one described in our bio data’s and will see how much we know about each other. Right?
Sahil: Exactly, just an attempt to make this “Arranged Setup” easier for us. Ok, so Ladies first.(Sahil passed a pen and paper to Maahi and took one for him)
Maahi: That was cheezy. ha ha..! Lets have a round of 7 questions and we can note it down and can give the score cards at the end.
They started shooting questions about each other like:
D.O.B, Place of Birth, Native, Siblings, College Certification, Hobbies, Current job and the last one being a blind question for both of them.
They asked each other what were their opinion for a life partner. Maahi had to answer Sahil’s choice of his life partner and vice versa.
The round of questions was now over.
Maahi: So Mr. Sahil, please reveal my score card. I am pretty sure I might have nailed it.
Sahil: Mam, you sound confident, well then you are right. 6 out of 7.
Maahi: Wooho, see I told you. By the way you are no less. 6 out of 7 for you as well.
Sahil: Shall I pinch you? Haha just kidding. We have mugged up our bio data’s pretty well.
And just then, Sahil’s mischievous brother knocked and informed them that snacks had been served.
Sahil and Maahi smiled at each other and joined everyone in the Dinning area.
After this, Maahi’s family left for their home. A common settlement had been decided of “We will let you know our opinion in a day or two.”
13th Feb (Tring Tring)
Maahi and Sahil had made up their mind for a round 2 meeting and the same had been communicated over the phone by each other’s parents. So 14th Feb was the second “DATE”
14th Feb, 4:00 pm, The Iris House
Sahil and Maahi reached the venue right on time, they greeted each other. They seemed to be more comfortable this time.
Maahi (Looking around the cozy couples holding hands in the coffee-house): Sahil “Why did our parents choose this day. I mean Its Valentines, A day for couples and what are we doing here, trying to be a couple??”
Sahil: Ha Ha..!! Maahi relax relax, forget the day and date. Lets just enjoy each other’s company as we did in the first round.
Maahi(Blushed..!! As she was again impressed by Sahil’s way of handling her): Well ya, you are right.
Just then, waiter arrived, they ordered coffee and started chit chatting about their likes dislikes, the way they want to see their life, how their families are, what would they expect and on and on
Maahi’s phone interrupted the ongoing sweet conversation and it was a call from her home. From the other end, her mother teased her asking: Maahi Would you be returning back home today or not? Shall we finalize the dates? Maahi blushed and hunged up the phone saying “Maa, I am coming home, we will talk about it later”
Sahil: Wow, its been 2 long hours, and we did not realize it. So Maahi What next?
Maahi: Looks like, some one is in hurry to get the answer. You will get your answer in a day or two.
Sahil: Ok Mam, I will be waiting.
And here with, the second round ended well. Smile of sanctification was seen on their faces.
Maahi’s parents conveyed the message to Sahil’s parents, that they were ready to move ahead. They even asked their consent for letting Sahil and Maahi exchange their phone numbers if Sahil wanted to move ahead.
16th Feb, 9:00 pm
Maahi’s phone beeped.
A message from Sahil: So mam, I now know your answer. ha ha..
Maahi: Smart enough Mr.
And later on their phone conversations kept on going for a month.
Round 3 (So called meet, which is set up just to finalize the Dates)
20th March, Maahi’s home
This being just the formal one. The comfort level between both the families was now on next level. Everyone present there knew that it was a YES from both. Sahil and Maahi throughout the third meeting kept on blushing and had already started talking with each other by passing some eye signals or the so called love signals. Everyone present there had their eyes on them and teasing went on for the entire day with sounds of laughter inside the room.
Sahil and Maahi tied the knot a month later and were now a happily married couple.
P.S : Some processes in life are to be accepted the way they are just like one being the Arranged Meetings. Things will definitely turn out to be great sooner or later.
So, just Take it simple silly..!!
