  • I don't want to participate in any of your rituals! Don't force me.

    Just one last time.... Please. We won't ask you again. Promise.

    I don't believe in it. Leave me alone.

    Don't break our hearts. You are a good daughter. You know we are doing this for you. It will ward of the dosha (negative consequences)...just trust us. And it's just 1 hour simple ritual ..nothing more.... Please don't say no. You will join us tomorrow morning.

    Next morning:

    Flowers in the temple. Earthen lamps glittering in the morning sun.The priests start chanting the mantras.

    Older priest says she is such a lovely girl! Soon you will find your soul mate. Everything will be Ok.

    This is not a simple ritual. This is chanting of marriage vows.

    I am marrying a God. I am a Goddess.
