Reena’s Exploration Challenge #92

Prompt

Marriages are made in heaven

they say
then why it’s difficult to adjust
and linger on peacefully.
crossover to another culture, language, traditions
 food habits, also
music,
crossover from
semi-classical and Hindi filmy
to Ravindra sangeet
was difficult
but not impossible
if the will is there
given the proper time and space
or
so I thought
you plant a sapling in another place
give it water, air sunlight
and also
the time and the space to bloom
so why people forget that
no can change overnight to their culture and tradition
why women are expected to change
with the marriage overnight
very few people understand
the importance of
time and space

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. You are so right. Being pressurized to change leads to a push-back. I’ve seen cases where the woman clings to her culture more than her parents, after landing in an alien place. It is a defiant statement or reinforcement of identity.

  5. Change is a process, not like flipping a switch. Patience is the key. I 100% agree that only one side expected to go through the process of change is not balanced.
