Engaged – Chapter 6

Since our last blog we would like our readers to know Mr Laakhi Singh have been extremely busy doing photo shoots for various magazines and he gave his first live interview to BBC Asian Network on the 11th April 2017.  Laakhi Singh, the author of Take A Walk In My Big Indian Heels spoke to BBC Asian Network about his relationship with Amrit and his mother-in-law before marriage and after marriage.

As you all read in previous blog, Laakhi Singh’s kindly hearted mother-in-law took her son Amrit’s marriage proposal to Laakhi.  She asked Laakhi to speak to his parents about this proposal so they can get married very soon.  

For those who have read the book, you must have known how adorably Amrit proposed Laakhi.

Let’s find out how Laakhi felt when the love of his life Amrit proposed Laakhi.

It was lovely weekend when Amrit had arranged surprised for Laakhi Singh in Edinburgh’s most luxurious apartment where Amrit had a chef prepare meal with beautiful scented candles and rose petals to show his unconditional love to Laakhi.  Amrit proposed Laakhi Singh in most perfect way, Not even for a second Laakhi  expected that wonderful evening will become most meaningful moments of their lives.

After those magical and sweet moments Laakhi finally said “YES” to Amrit.  Laakhi told Amrit how happy he was with his proposal, Laakhi was feeling top of the world, he felt secure in Amrit’s arms and what more would he ask for?

Amrit said: “Laakhi, my soul, tells me with every breath I take, that you are the person that completes me”, “I know, with you by my side, I can make my dreams become a reality, will you marry me?” I looked at him, as his grin, and kind face looked at me, I screamed: “yes, I would love to marry you”.

After Amrit’s proposal, Laakhi decided to call Amrit’s mum and let her know he has accepted Amrit’s proposal.  Amrit’s mum was very proud and happy with Laakhi, she said would like to introduce Laakhi to Amrit’s Brothers, Sister-in-laws but there was no mention of Father-in-law (Laakhi didn’t understand why).  

Days were coming near for Laakhi to to meet the rest of the family. Laakhi, Amrit and Mother-in-law were very occupied with engagement shopping, guest lists and rest of the preparations.  Laakhi’s Mother-in-law suggested him to wear EXTREMELY RAVISHING saree for his engagement.  Laakhi was very puzzled but he knew Amrit loved him whether Laakhi was dressed as a man or a woman as Laakhi would do anything to keep Amrit happy.

CHAPTER – 5  Mother-In-law’s Proposal


On our last blog we discussed how Laakhi met his mother-in-law 1st time, how she approved Laakhi and Amrit’s wedding.  Laakhi took very special place in his mother-in-law’s heart and from there she decided to give Amrit’s hand to laakhi.

After the 1st meeting with Laakhi, his mother-in-law very quickly decided to meet Laaki again.  Being over the moon, Laakhi could not wait to have 2nd meeting with her but lots of questions were running in Laakhi’s head such as “Why does she wants to meet me again?”  Amrit finally bought his mum to meet Laakhi where she was very open to Laakhi about how she feels for Laakhi and Amrit, she came with wedding proposal gifts (shagun) and asked Laakhi to marry Amrit according to Sikh culture.

“Laakhi if you accept this proposal it does mean you would be a daughter in law in my house and not Amrit’s boyfriend or partner. I was a little puzzled to what she said at first, but when I looked into the baskets, I noticed they had ladies’ Indian garments and clothes in them”

Wedding Proposal

After getting wedding proposal from Amrit’s mum, Laakhi asked her to give her some more time to think about everything.  Laakhi’s mother-in-law was very kind women and very thoughtful of her to ask Laakhi to speak to his parents about this proposal.  Words spoken from Amrit’s mum seemed very meaningful and true, they melt Laakhi’s heart and after feeling loved and respected from his mother-in-law, Laakhi was overwhelmed.

“I would lose Amrit and then probably never move on in life. As it was I was getting older, and everyone in my family was moving ahead with life, Marriage, kids ETC and I wanted to go ahead with my life, I wanted all those things other members of my family had”.

Laakhi was worried about his parents and Sikh society.  Laakhi knew accepting his mother-in-law’s proposal would give lots of shame and pain to his own family. Marrying Amrit Laakhi would have to be the daughter in law of the house. Finally Laakhi accepted the proposal and decided to get engaged.

We had some fantastic response from everyone in our last blog, Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences.  Share us your proposal stories and how did you cope with your family?
