How to scuttle a marriage proposal! GO!!
I want to live in a world where there isn’t a hierarchy of relationships, where romantic love isn’t assumed to be more important than other kinds, where folks can center any relationships they want whether it be their relationship to their spiritual practice, kids, lovers, friends, etc. and not have some notion that it’s more or less important because of who or what’s in focus.

After all, I’m turning 30 this year.
My ex sent this the other day. It’s exactly what I would need to survive this weekend: my cousin’s apparently never-ending matrimonial events continues with a _mehendi_ tomorrow and a reception on Sunday night.
Too bad Starbucks has only made it to Mumbai so far.
Hopefully the chocolate truffle cake ordered for the reception will suffice to keep me sane during all the inevitable prodding about my single status.
