Not all scars show, not all wounds heal. Sometimes, you can’t always see the pain that someone feels.

-Lisa French


Every woman dreams of marrying a handsome, smart and independent guy, with a brain of his own, who will fall on his knees to court her, and who would do anything to win her heart.

And yes, I found my man! Aravind is the name!

I’ve been crying uncontrollably for two weeks now (July 15th, 2015), trying to figure out why Aravind called off the marriage with me a day after we were engaged.

The engagement was scheduled on June 29th, 2015.

The mehandi function happened two days earlier. Mom was moistening my hands with lemon water. I was so excited!!

This was the first step to the rest of my life with Aravind. I was already dreaming of long drives with my sweet heart, kissing him all the time, late night movies every other day, my brain could not contain all the reveries.

But now, he was no longer mine. Why? Was I not beautiful enough for him? Was I not intellectually exciting enough? Why me? I love him like no one else, and I know I will marry no other man… No one else but him…
