If Queen were an Indian soap….

  1. The groom would have made his decision just before the phreas.
  2. Instead of gracefully retreating, the neighbours would have stood in a circle blaming the girl, her character and her family for the issue. (How could they let a young girl go around with her fiancee for years without getting married first?)
  3. Dadi would have blamed Mom for raising a characterless daughter and Mom would have taken out the frustration on the daughter, while brother, father and uncles would have hopelessly watched.
  4. The girl would have been dehydrated after shedding hundred kilolitres of tears over several months.
  5. Then a random out-of-the-blue character would have emerged who would have encouraged the girl to take her fate in her hands and given her a brilliant idea.
  6. The girl would have donned a sexy avatar and met the guy in a night-club.
  7. Due to her make-up and new dress the guy wouldn’t have recognized her as his desi-girl fiancée and would have fallen hard for the girl donning strapless and high heels.
  8. They would have met in the night-club repeatedly, until she would have gotten into some trouble.
  9. The trouble would have been such that it would have made guy suspect her character and suddenly that part would have been very important to him.
  10. Another random out-of-the-blue character would have emerged whose sole purpose in life would have been to bring the soul-mates together.
  11. With some random plans of this random out-of-the-blue character, the soul-mates would have met and would have fallen in each other arms equally randomly, making them realize their soul-mateness.
  12. But they would have held off, started fighting, until the random-out-of-the-blue character would have gotten them drunk and made one of them confess.
  13. There would have been awkwardness and some other subplot would have derailed the reconciliation.
  14. Couple of years later another random out-of-the-blue character would have made another person drink bhaang on holi and finally the soul-mates would have united. Until the evil mother-in-law or sister-in-law entered the plot, of course…

I got carried away.

Thank God, it wasn’t an Indian soap. Go, watch it. It’s nice 🙂
