In this process we  has  to face so  many obstacles   i.e. harassment from our  kadoos  boss in office , in-laws emotional harassment from  brothers to do so odd job   and emotional blackmailing from our  parents side  as they  try too palm us off to XYZ  strange without knowing our apprehensions and fear in this regard.
