Today 2-6-1977 I turned 16 and this was the day from which my miseries started.
In India a girl means a waste and particularly at this time like 1977 female infanticide was much common it was great that I am still alive thanks to my parents to accept me at the time of my birth.
It would be so good if the time had stopped when i was just 15.
Why do i had to turn 16. This birthday was not only my birthday but also my anniversary(can u imagine at the age of 16 I am getting married) at this age children do not even pass out 10th grade what a shame.
My marriage was fixed a way back so its 9am in the morning I woke up and i see guests around dressed like it was someones wedding i was shocked whose wedding it can be i was not aware that its me who is going to be married to an unknown man 3times my age in around less than 12 hours i would be married to an unknown man.
