Coming of age ?!

At times, I am known to make provocative, ill thought out/ill conceived, controversial statements.
Though I rarely regret making them, friends definitely do have a blast having me around and picking holes at what I say :-) (What are friends for eh ?!)

One of the 'golden oldies' is something I said in first year of college within the first couple of months I think : and this has been repeated, quoted and passed around - with multiple interpretations & variations over the years since then.

It was related to a discussion we were having w.r.t marriage - what is the right age to marry ?
If I recall correctly, out of the blue I made the comment 'Eda, you should marry only after 27 - you will not be mature enough for handling the responsibility of marriage until then'.
And voila, did I not have the flak for that - immediately responses were like
'Mridul will wake up on his 27th b'day and say - I suddenly feel mature : let me marry !' to more unprintable ones.

Vipin's idea yesterday was that we will go stand in front of Devatha plaza ('cos of our usual eating place - casa picolla) and he will proposition to girls walking by : I know a 27 year old who is mature enough to handle responsibilities of marriage, are you interested ? :-P
The reason for this ? I turned 27 this week ...

And no, I dont regret making that statement : and yes, it was inaccurate - I feel I should have said 30 :-D
