The arranged market scene is like a game

Being a display item in the Indian Arranged Marriage arena has been an incredibly humbling experience, bordering on disappointment. Getting rejected hurts less with each day. It’s a big league game. Everybody is carrying a checklist; just one strike against and you are out.

I started off with a checklist that read: interesting, intelligent, good looking, and chivalrous; and finally came down to: not a creep, not bossy, and not an idiot. But nonetheless I had my share of laughs, awe, and bewilderment.

The guy with the glasses

My eyes have a blue tint in the sclera (the white part of the eyeball is bluish because it is thin. Not a good thing).

I was supposed to meet the guy at a local coffee outlet.

Conversation starts:

Guy: Whoa! Are you wearing contact lenses?

Me: What? No. I have eyesight of 20/20. *repenting the statement immediately, as the guy is wearing glasses*

Guy: Oh! Well, they appeared bluish.

Me: That is sclera. Contact lenses are worn on – umm – the iris.
