Indian society’s obsession with marriage is quite overwhelming. Not just us, recently, Olympics gold medallist, Neeraj Chopra also spoke about it.
In a recent interview, India’s first Olympics gold medal winner in athletics, Neeraj Chopra spoke about facing a unique problem. He shared how he has to train in the US because it’s the shaadi season in India and he was getting too many invites.
It would be safe to assume that there are more reasons behind this decision, but just the fact that weddings happen to be one of them is quite something. In a recent interview published in The Tribune, Neeraj was quoted as saying:
“The shaadi season is on. You get a lot of invites from family and friends, besides Patiala is really cold these days. The weather here is perfect. My only focus here is on training, rest and diet. I am back to spending the normal life of an athlete, where you only focus on sports and nothing else.”
We are no world champions, but this is totally understandable.
Even though Omicron cases are on rampant increase, there have been so many weddings happening around us. Indian society’s obsession with marriage is so crazy that neither it sees someone’s passion, nor it takes health alerts seriously!
