Hear Thy OJ: In Conversation with Women’s Web

24 Jan

Have you ever wondered what it’s really like for me, living with the Boy? How we are at home when there’s just the two of us? Who cleans up, who takes out the trash? Whether the toilet seat is left up or down, and who obsesses over micro-particles of dust?

If you haven’t, clever you. But if you have, here’s your chance to find out.

Amrita, from the now sadly silent Indiequill, asked to take a peek inside my marriage of 13 months and got me talking about what it is to like to live with The Modern Indian Man.

In one word: socks.

For more, head to http://www.womensweb.in/articles/modern-indian-marriage-1/ and listen to Episode 1 of the Modern Family podcast.


I love how sane she’s made me sound.

Maybe someday I’ll even believe it. 😉

    Ah, heard you two yesterday! Loved hearing your voice again. And both of you sound very sane, socks notwithstanding:)

    Off to listen. She got me to say stuff on the internetz that I will no doubt regret in later years but that’s Amrita for you!

    dipali: Oh but it’s true, it’s true! Those darn socks…

    Sue: 😉 I heard.

    loved the podcast.
    more layers to the OJ than in a curry puff from Bangsar Village’s bakery.

    I demand weekly bulletins.

    Lovely to hear your voice for the first time.
    And yes as you said I do believe times are changing & so are expectations.
    Incidentally, I had an arranged marriage
    It didn’t quite work out but unlike my mom’s generation of women who grinned & bore it ,finally mustered the courage to opt out a few months back after 13 years .It hasn’t been as tough as I imagined it would be.I must say in some way the blogs of women like you & the mad momma have helped me rediscover myself.

    This was so much fun to listen to! Amrita, if you’re reading this, I MISS YOU!

    But you are sane, love:-) Either that or its a sock OCD!

    maidinmalaysia: I’m definitely more potato than onion, hon.

    rajni: Thank you for sharing and for that seriously overwhelming compliment. 🙂 You are a brave spirit, lady. Good luck and love to you and the kids.

    Mom Gone Mad: They’re bloody littered like landmines, those socks! 😡

    So, THAT’S what you sound like… 🙂

    Great fun!

    Broom: No, no, Broomie, that was some sane woman posing as OJ. The Real McCoy was tied up and gagged in a basement. 🙂

  10. rajni February 8, 2012 at 6:40 am #

    🙂 I mean every word.

  11. Orange Jammies February 22, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    rajni: I know you do. 🙂 And that is very humbling.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
