My elder sis said yes to this guy who had proposed to her at least 3 times. She said no, but continued dating him. He was as always hopeful.
Finally he gave her an ultimatum. ‘Either you give me a definite yes or a no or simply stop giving me any hope’. Guess the guy had lost his patience.
Okay so the thing is she has said YES. You may ask so what is the problem? Well the problem is that the guy is from a different cast. Worst is that he is from a lower caste.
Caste system is India is so firmly rooted even today, maybe not among the present generation, but with the previous ones, that it becomes a big issue if you marry someone outside caste.
Though it is quite prevalent now.
If you are a Hindu and you marry a Muslim, it is considered suicide. I agree with this somewhat. Not because of the Hindu Muslim issue, but because the traditions, customs, everyday life being so different. If you are ready for the sacrifices and the adjustments it requires, fine. Otherwise it is like you are fighting a war.
And yet again I have managed to steer from the topic.
My sis now has this daunting task of letting my parents know that she wants to marry this guy. I quite like him. The best part is he accepts my sis as she is, knowing all her quirks and qualities, good, bad, whatever. Also he is well settled and financially stable.
I know my parents will agree, eventually. But until then it is going to be a war.
