Rekha`s family has decided to strip me on the day of the marriage.
Looks like the marriage will be sanctified in a temple. But this is only the good part. The bad part is, I can only wear a dhoti during the marriage. That leaves out my fat-laden, scar-ridden, breast-hanging torso fully exposed.
Was wondering what effect it will carry on the others in the family. Especially, the girls. My belly might lead a few to think that I am a plain-clothes policeman. Or perhaps, a jalebi wala.
As of now, I am struck…. cannot go back on my word to Rekha. Nor can I oppose her father. I faintly remember she telling me that he knows kalari.
But have I zeroed in on two options. I could send a body double…just need to find one. Or I could apply oil all over my torso and use some kajal to highlight the muscles. Might look like Puneet Issar in Mahabharata, but I guess one just goes about ones duty (Ref: Gita).
My last option is something I plan not to implement on. In the three months to go before the marriage, I could join a gym. But is any girl worth the trouble? Coming..Rekha…
