Why do we Indians try to be modern and liberal in the way we dress but not in the way we think?
On one hand, the uber-modern generation proudly uses social media to preach how we need to be liberal about relationships, living-in, hook-ups and sex. On the other hand, when it comes to marriage, everyone wants a virgin bride. Our standards completely flip when it comes to marriage.
All our past karma becomes our deleted business while we get ourselves ready to be served ‘pure’ in the market.
And it’s worse when we want to force these prejudices on other people — irrespective of the fact that two people are at peace together.
Dimpy Ganguly. Remember, the cute, little girl who won Rahul Mahajan’s swayamvar to become his wife and later on, became a ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant?
She later divorced Rahul and found love in the arms of her high-school sweetheart Ronit Roy.
While she had a story straight from a Bollywood movie with a happily ever after, the haters found reasons to troll her anyway.
Dimpy recently shared the news of her baby with the world and a lot of jobless people on the internet took to maths to judge how Dimpy got pregnant before marriage.

Our baby girl Reanna decided to come to us early with 100000 hugs 2000000 kisses and million cuddles waiting for her on 20th of June early morning..lighting our world up like eternal Christmas! I would like to thank all my friends and family for being with us through this journey and God almighty for blessing us and praying that He guides me on this new journey of parenthood every step of the way! Dugga! Dugga! Thank you daddypie @acidxxx for capturing this moment! Love you!❤
The couple got married on November 27, 2015. June doesn’t ideally make nine months to have the baby.
Irrespective of the fact that Dimpy wrote how their baby girl Reanna came early, no one should have bothered to troll her. Soon, pretty harsh comments started pouring in to criticize Dimpy’s character and bring her past back.
But her husband showed her support by posting strong comments against the trolls:
”Stop spreading your filth around. May be you come from a world where a man doesn’t defend his wife when a stray dog barks at her. But unfortunately I have had the good fortune of belonging from a place where I have seen family stick together. So If you ask me who I am to interfere let me tell you you are trying to trash my wife and the mother of my daughter.”

A year back on this very day we decided to be a part of each others life for the rest of our lives..Can't believe how time flies! Feels like it was only yesterday that I thought I had lost everything when you came along to hold my my hand and gave me everything that I had ever hoped for and so much more.. I thank God everyday for sending you to me – my guardian angel, my lucky charm, my best friend. But today I want to thank you, thank you for being YOU! Can't tell you how happy you make me Rohit Roy! Love you infinity times infinity and yes, Happy One Year baby! ❤❤❤
We can’t talk of going the western ways yet totally ignore the progressive thinking which comes with it. If two adults can fall in love, get married — they can also very well have a child before, after or in fact even never if they wish to. When it comes to taking decisions for children, the parents have the last word in it.
It’s time our conversations move ahead from shaadi, bacche aur izzat.
