An Open Letter To Those Chaar Log Your Parents Warned You About


Since the days of yore and till the doom’s day, India belongs to these mysterious four. An invisible audience who don’t surrender till you rectify your sins – the sin of having this misconception that a career other than Science is also a career, the sin of not taking ‘caste’ into consideration while falling in love, the sin of being spotted somewhere with a friend who’s not the same gender as you, the sin of dropping out of college and pursuing your dreams because you’re not interested in being better than some Sharma ji’s son, the sin of assuming that you should marry someone who you’ve known for years and not the one who’s liked your matrimonial profile a couple of hours ago.

I’ve spent pretty much my entire life wondering who these chaar log are? Are they the concerned relatives who feel pity of me as not cracking IIT makes me a hopeless, pathetic, dysfunctional creature? Are they the curious neighbors who feed on our chai samosa while hunting for my future plans – “So you’re an artist. But what do you do for a living? Are they the judgemental aquaintances who when see my hair colored and body tattooed assume I’m high on drugs? Or are they the matchmaker aunties who are uncertain about my character as I’m in my late 20s and still not married?

Whoever you unselfish bunch of people are, I’m craving to meet you. To embrace you and beg you – Please quit! Back off and cease to invest every ounce of your energy in making my life morally correct. Give up and stop making a hue & cry if I dare do something socially unacceptable. Yes, I’ve chosen a career you’ve hardly heard the name of and yes, I’m managing my bread and butter fairly well. Doesn’t matter how many times my parents yell and remind me that I exist to impress you, I might choose to break the chain.

So spare me, switch to your own kids for bestowing your advices and bless their lives!

Thanks for caring so far

P.S. – I’m not taking your priceless opinions as they don’t pay my bills. Will you accept me?

Sincerely,
A Girl Who’s Had Enough Of Your Generosity
