The story of my life or marriage or whatever…

12 Aug

I fell in love with a girl quite late in my life. Till then my love affairs have been strictly restricted to computers, games and gadgets.

So much so that when Haimanti, my wife, who was my fiancee then, came to visit me in Bangalore for the first time, I nearly threw a fit when she let go of my laptop an inch from the ground.

So much so that after 3 years of marriage Haimanti still thinks that I sometimes love gadgets and my laptop more than I love her.

So much so that I sometimes think that she might be just right !!!

But this story is not about that….

I’ve been lucky to have some of the best friends a man can have in the world… Having studied in a all male school and then a college where females were a scarcity I had a group of all male friends and they were and ARE the best and we’ve had some amazing times together hanging out, so much so that my family knew everything they had to know about them and liked them too.

This story is not about them either…

This story is about my sister, Evana.

Well she’s five years younger to me and has been a darling both to me and my parents. We fought with each other so much so that my parents had to get involved every time, but we loved each other and still do. We still have the occasional tiffs even now, and now my wife get’s involved to sort out the mess πŸ™‚

So it was quite sometime after I was seeing Haimanti, I decided to break the news to my sister. This is how the conversation went :

Me :
Bonu (sister), I’m seeing someone πŸ™‚
Evana : OH WHAT ??? OK ????
Me : Yeah πŸ™‚ (blushing…)
Evana : Does mom know about it ??? It is not one of your jokes right ???
Me : No dear, serious, it is a female.
Evana : Oh really ? How nice !!!
Me : Hang on I’ll break the news to mom & dad too. Let me conference her on my cellphone…
Evana : OK
Me : Done, hey mom how are you ?
Mom : Hello ?
And then my sister, unable to control her excitement blurted out :

Evana :
Mom, your son has a girl now, I mean a real girl and all the time we thought he was GAY !!!

    You have a sibling?
    You always come across as a single child. But you *have* a sibling. A sister at that.

    You mean you are not?? Bummer d00d…!!!

  • Evana Bhattacharya

    I don’t remember you giving me much options to think otherwise. All my friends used to flaunt their brother’s affairs and their shopping for the Bro’s marriage. Oh!!! BACK THEN…How I wished I had a straight brother. Because parents would have never let you marry a guy and when I came to know about Hemu I obviously had to get u married….my shopping was at stake. And I m SO glad that I succeeded.

  • Yep, absolutely remember πŸ™‚ And Raj shot that with such a “matter of fact” voice that I was stuck with nothing to say πŸ™‚

    Potter: To whom or what? πŸ˜›
