Blogger Love: Part 2
The broker went to the girl's house in the pretext that someone had told him they have a daughter to be married. He gave them our friend's info and some other 'soplangi cases' too. He praised our friend, saying he is also working in US, good family, blah blah.. He got her 'jaathagam' and quickly got it matched. Porutham besh besh.. and that was conveyed to both the homes. Our friend was constantly calling the broker and he was very happy to hear that one major hurdle got cleared. The parents then met and decided that they will ask their children's opinion.
One morning, our friend woke up and gets this e-mail from his parents. He knew that she would have got it too. The parents had provided both with the phone number of the other person. And he calls her up one fine day: (He is X and she Y)
He: Hi.. this is X.. Is it Y?
She: Yeah.. speaking
He: Hi.. uhm.. I got your foto and number
He: umm.. hahn.. my parents had sent it; they said you should have received mine too..
She: Oh.. you are talking about that case?
He: *DUH* case-a?
She: I mean, some alliance.. yeah yeah I got it too..

they talk about where they work, their education, life, future plan, etc.. and our friend is getting very nervous now..
They decide to meet someplace.. She asks him to come and meet for a lunch on Saturday, in a restaurant..
Each minute passes as if it is a month and, then came the saturday.. he dresses up his best and goes to the meet-point.
They share a warm hand-shake and start to talk again..
