Got married

by Manshu on February 11, 2010

in Opinion

Most of you know that I was on vacation almost whole of last month, but what I didn’t disclose was that I was getting married in that time.

I just kept putting it off, until it got too close to the wedding and I got no time to write about it. Now, I am finally back and thought I’d write a quick announcement type post.

I got married on the 23rd of last month; the wedding was in Goa, where my wife is from, and then there was a reception on the 30th in Delhi, where I am originally from.

Both ceremonies went really well, and it felt great to be surrounded by so many loved ones for such a long period of time. I realized how lucky both of us were for having so many people who blessed us and shared our happiness.

As I left Delhi, I thought about how lucky we humans are because we can bring smiles and happiness to others by letting them share our happiness, and that is primarily why I wrote this post today.

I am looking forward to married life, and life itself feels a lot better now that I have a companion to share this journey with.

.. and thanks for sharing your good news. It’s good to know occasionally that in addition to blogging about financial matters that you’re an “ordinary” person with a real life. I think it’s why the best bloggers succeed (certainly compared to anonymous newspaper and TV journalists).

All the best,


Manshu February 12, 2010 at 7:02 am

Thank you very much Tony.
I am always in two minds about writing stuff that is not related to financial matters wondering whether people would like it or not, so I really appreciate your encouragement.


Hema February 12, 2010 at 8:09 am

Well…. heartiest congratulations to the both of you!!!!

and yes, we really appreciate you writing such stuff, it makes us (atleast me) feel included in your happiness πŸ˜€


Manshu February 12, 2010 at 9:53 am

Thanks Hema, in fact I wrote a few drafts at different points of time and then ended up deleting them because I was not sure whether to publish or not. I wasn’t sure how or what to write, but finally settled on this short announcement, and I am glad that I did that.
