Horse Trading


Was sitting with the Bossty- the Buffet Dude, J-Knee and Ru- the aerobics dudette over lunch and the discussion loomed over a sensitive topic very close to Ru’s heart. Anyways when the discussion is of female clothings (which are generally less of clothes and more of nothing these days, wonder why we call it clothing) Ru is over sensitive. However this time we were sitting on lunch discussing about the plight of a friend of ours who has reached close within the expiry date of his bachelorhood. He went for the Bridal shopping for what is currently his life (over the strong Hava, paani & Reliance network) and would soon become his wife. He told that he went to shop bridal lehenga to commemorate the occasion he would start a new phase of his life and they eventually settled on something on the tunes of 100000 INR. Yes there are no extra zeros in that figure I confirmed thrice.

So when we were discussing the relevance of the so called “Shaadi ka Lehenga” and its exorbitant price (however you can never explain this to a girl). Bossty cam up with an interesting business plan of renting the lehenga’s for marriages and saving money over that. Ru turned her head faster than Shane Warne would dream of turning the ball; and gave a look stamped “Escape; I turned into man-eater”. Scared as ever Bossty tried to fit in the logic that the attire is only meant for being worn once and it is such a waste of money and would be practical and logical to rent a lehenga. Ru’s gaze stopped her to getting into NPV & IRR of the proposition and long term returns. As evident Logic not being Ru’s major in graduation she brought in her area of expertise E-Motions. Marriage happens just for once; how can you wear a rented Lehenga on your own wedding no one would know it but you would know it. Its once in a life time chance to get married (though Bossty had a plan of keeping 4-5 wives and keep shuffling them on yearly basis) but he dared not to interrupt between Ru’s passionate speech.

For once I felt Ru scored over Bossty and the discussion goes to Ru’s passion over the subject. When Bossty asked a question collecting all his innocence which has long left with dreams of onsite –“If that’s the case every guy should buy a horse before the marriage after all it is one time use and marriage is once in a life time opportunity. Shall we ask Ru’s ********* to …........”.

Now Ru & Bossty have a new venture known as “RuBo Lehenga & Horse Rentals”

Long live marriages, expensive lehengas, healthy horses & steady cashflows :-)
