How did Deb Arti Ria Chakravorty react after hearing the news of her mother Moushumi’s second marriage?
She shared her reaction on Instagram and said,” I was excited last year when I got a call from my aunt who said, “There’s a guy who likes your Mom by the way her name is Moushumi.” I was so happy when Maa found love again. I grew up at Nani’s house because after Papa died, Maa moved in with her. Maa was 25 when I was just 2. She refused even though everyone would say, ‘You should remarry.’
“She’d say, ‘I’ll find love, but my daughter won’t find a father,'” and she dedicated her entire life to raising me. She did her best as a teacher and gave me everything she could. I decided that when I grew up, it would be my turn to look after her. I wasn’t going to back down now that I had that chance. A few months later, I visited her and she told me she’d joined a music app. That’s where she met Swapan.
She had become friends with him because he was a fan of her singing. She liked talking to him, I could tell. She was hesitant to open her heart to love, but she did it anyways. “Your life isn’t over, give him a chance,” I said, easing her mind. In October, a few months later, she said “I like him too.” I was both happy and nervous too.
It all vanished the moment I spoke to him. There was something very soothing about him. He said, “I will make her happy”. I was sure they would be pleased. After both families met, the wedding preparations began. I made sure all the rituals were performed even though Maa wanted a small wedding. I went all out and went to Guwahati for her wedding shopping.
I remember on her wedding day, Maa was so nervous. I wasn’t having any of it even though she felt embarrassed wearing the red saree. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her when she was finally ready. She cried when I placed a small tikka behind her ear. After all the rituals were done, Swapan came to me and said, “You’ll always be her priority.” We smiled and gave cuddling to each other.
I can tell that Maa is very happy because it’s been 9 months since she got married. 3 months ago, all of us went to Shillong. I felt that Maa found a life partner and I too found a papa while we were exploring the streets, eating, and shopping. I’m the happiest now that my mother is happier. We’d always craved a family and finally, We’ve got it! Chakravorty successfully arranged a wedding for her mother, ending on a super happy note.
