Aniruddha Pathak (25.05.1941 / Godhra - Gujarat)
In heaven, or hate driven
God bless use-before expiry date,
Marriage knots if not of Pearly Gate,
Fine, but of two short years!
They are scarce bubbly beers:
The froth has a short span; so's knot's fate!
___________________________________________The law makers in Mexico are toying with the idea of
passing a controversial legislation that puts a two-year
expiry date on marriages. How should we in India react?
We, with a rising divorce rate in our metros, say Mumbai,
where two out of five marriages fail, where as in Gujarat's
Ahmedabad, contract marriages are not unknown, the
institution of marriage is perhaps crumbling fast; ‘till
death do us part' seems like anachronism, as live-in
relationships are being accepted widely.
But who am I to sit in judgment of what others do?
For now, let me live with this Limerick.
