Does love really need a proof of education, a job, and a bank balance?

“Look. You both know we are going to have our final semester exams starting next week. They will get over in a month and in the next few weeks, we will get our results. I’m sure if not great, we will get satisfactory grades, except you Farhaan. There’s no doubt that you will top the university, but I’m talking about me and Zyan. So ultimately, we will get our degrees by the end of this year.”

She paused for a while, looking at me and then fixing her eyes on Zayn. “What’s new in this. We all knew that,” he said, folding her hands.

She leaned forward, resting her elbows on the table like she was challenging Zayn to keep on sitting. “Yeah, you’re right. We all know this but do any of us know what we are going to do with our MBA degree.”

Stark silence as soon as Sania put forward her question. I pondered on her question for a while before answering.

Did we really know how a degree in business management would help us shape our future? Did we really require a piece of paper as a proof of our education? Did it help us realize what we really wanted to do? What was the purpose of education? Did we spend half of our lives studying just to show people we were educated enough to secure a job, afford a car, a house, and a family?

How was it? Did you like it?

This is just a tiny excerpt from my upcoming book The Wedding Singer. The book touches some untouched chords of life. Especially of younger generations—The millennials.

Dreams, goals, aspirations, desires, insecurities, inhibitions. And yes expectations. Not only the ones that you set for yourself but also those set by others for you. Especially from your loved ones. Your parents, your siblings, and yes from your current partners (boy or girl).

Do you think it’s always mandatory to fulfill the expectations? If not what do you do to get rid of those nagging conversations at home, in your family, with your partner?

Is it that difficult to live life on your own terms? I mean why it is important to study, secure a job, and have financial security before you think about falling for someone.

Does love need a proof of education, a job, and a bank balance? Why don’t you or the world just keep this strongest human emotion away from the shackles of responsibilities, expectations, and worries?

These are the questions that I think every young millennial faces today. And the book The Wedding Singer deals with the problems, the guilt, the apprehensions of today’s young generation.

Meet Sania, Zayn, and Farhaan as they embark on their journey of finding their purpose in life, meeting expectations, and falling in love.

The Wedding Singer is releasing on October 30, 2018. The pre-order is LIVE on all Amazon marketplaces. And the book is available on a special promo price. The sale runs till the release day.
