So, if you are on the wrong side of the 20s and you are unmarried or to cut it straight 25 and still single (Hawwww…from relatives), here are 12 relatable things you are sure to feel:

Not just academics, the sharmaji ka ladka haunts you literally everywhere. Uski shaadi kab ki hogai aur tum dekho! Like seriously!

2. Look at your age

Our parents are very quick to make you notice precisely how old you are. Well, by the time you swing to the other end of 25, you know full well on any day how old you precisely are. Thanks to your mom she even counts the seconds for you.

3. Body shaming sh*t

4. Where the f**k is the Sanskaar!

Oops! There I said it! Good girls don’t swear! Leave swearing, you are not even supposed to know what f**k means? Really? Which century is this?

6. Think of your YOUNGER sister

Oh this dilemma- baby sister can’t get married because you are still single. I am forced to think who even comes up with all this crappy logic? Must take a really amazing level of stupidity to even think of such rules!

Be very cautious when your mum says that. She is not interested to hear all those mumbo jumbo stories of your friends. She is looking for a prospective bridegroom for you, right from under your nose.

8. Koi baat hui hai kya

Of course, every day when you wake up, they are going to ask you if something has happened. They keep on prying until you let them know of your illegal affair you had when you were 16 and have forgotten completely about it.

9. The dilemma of your biological clock

Even before you have been married they are already worried about when and how you will be popping a baby. If you get married late, your biological clock may refuse to offer a progeny and this shall break their little hearts, you see.

10. Beta zara dikhana

This is the warning bell. Unless you have a modern mamma why slays the internet, helping your parents understand the dynamics of cannot just be downright embarrassing but equally tormenting as well.

11. Life hai, compromise karna hota hai

Sometimes your parents will sit down and let you know that often in life, you won’t get what you want. Comprises are a part of your life.

In the end, they really do care about you. Despite the nagging and the snide remarks, your parents want nothing more than your happiness. The only thing is they believe it comes with a better half. Who’s to tell them I’m a big, fat, lovable whole in myself!

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
