I am not an attractive face and to many, I am a woman who came from the jungles – dark, uneven skinned, frizzy unmanageable hair, weird body structure, average height, thick lips and a big nose. I am not a brainy either that I can impress people even with my intelligence.
When people see me with my husband, I am laughed at, more often mocked at, and asked a repetitive question – “Sudha, how did you manage to get hitched?”
And somewhere in their deep-dark question, buried a bitter truth.
15 years have passed by, I have two children but there isn’t any spark to the relationship I share with my husband, Shekhar. Marriage moved at a roller coaster speed, faking how beautiful and wonderful it is on the social media and elsewhere.
