Her family was planning her marriage. She resisted and opted for M.A. Statistics only to realise it was not meant for her.
“Dad, any marriage proposal for me?”
“Yes, but he is a divorce`.”
“It’s ok dad. It will work.”
Her semester was coming to an end.
“Dad, any other?”
“Yes, but the age difference!”
“It’s ok, dad.”
“He drinks too.”
“No worries, dad.”
She got engaged.
Her exams were approaching.
“They are asking for an early marriage.”
“It’s ok, dad.” She chose the lesser of two evils for that was the only way to skip her exams.
