Author Frank Sonnenberg rightly said, “You can tell a lot about people by the way they treat their pets.” And dogs are the first animals we can think of when it comes to pets. So what happened, and why did Karishma Walia, a Deloitte India employee from Bangalore reject a marriage proposal of a well to do, good looking guy from Delhi over the issue of her pet dog, Lucy.
A story which has been trending since past few days is something which should be known and read by everyone around. It not only gives a boost to woman empowerment but also says a lot about how equal and important animals are and should be.
Take a look at the WhatsApp screenshots below, go through them as many times as you want and can. Did you notice how a girl rejected a guy for the reason that the guy who wanted to marry Karishma, the protagonist of this story but had an issue with her pet, Lucy?
The chats clearly depict how badly he wanted to get rid of Karishma’s pet and even went onto saying, “..please marry the dog” when his wish wasn’t complied to. He even said how his mother didn’t like dogs and how he didn’t want to share the same bed as Lucy.
Karishma’s prioritizing Lucy over a guy who didn’t like dogs clearly shows how important it is to have a guy who not only loves but also accepts you the way are, with what you have. You must be wondering, what about her family, how they reacted. Well, when she was interviewed and was asked about her family’s reaction, she said her mother is totally against the decision made by her daughter and thinks Karishma made a wrong choice by rejecting a good looking, well to do guy over the issue of her dog.
With the ongoing family pressure, Karishma still stands firm on her decision. In the same interview, she shared the guy’s opinion that how she should take the family over career and how right after knowing his views on her dog, she was utterly repelled which lead to the final NO and ended the marriage proposal then and there.
On your face, narrow-mindedness.
