Recap: So finally after a year and half year of struggles, lots of crying, misunderstanding between families, and the chaos in the society and all my extended relatives, we were finally getting married. I was finally getting married to the person I love, not from the same sub-caste (which was the reason for major issues from my side). Can you imagine? In 2020, when people were dying of corona, the only concern my family had was the sub-caste of the boy. On the contrary, his family was cool and had no demands (dowry) and issues. So, when Vivek and I gave them the ultimatum that no matter what, we want to get married to each other, they were left with no choice. They fixed the date in march but got postponed in November due to lockdown. So as soon as the unlocking procedure started, Vivek’s mom aka My SasuMaa (Mother-in-law) fixed the first day of mahurat for our wedding.

So we directly went at 3rd floor where the hall was allocated for our wedding. The hall wasn’t looking the way we had asked him to do. We tried calling him but he call kept ringing. We saw few boys who were the caterers confirmed that the hall is ready and the decorator left due to some emergency at his place. I called both my sisters, Priti wasn’t picking up as…..
