Realization

From what I see, I am nothing special, nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing has happened to me my whole life that hasn’t happened to nearly everybody else on this planet. Except that I met Brian. Being in his arms were some of the happiest times I had ever experienced. I could look deep into his eyes and be enchanted forever. Being with him changed my soul. I felt his love prying apart the hard shell of shyness that encircled me. His trust, his love and his support for me lifted me from the earth and gently sent me into the clouds. He cast off the chains I had given myself. Through him I learned a new insight about the world. It was as if a tall, dark mountain had stood in ...view middle of the document...

He cast off the chains I had given myself. Through him I learned a new insight about the world. It was as if a tall, dark mountain had stood in front of me, and out of nowhere, he provided the wings to fly over it. We met at my work. We started dating each other and seeing more and more of each other every day, not knowing that we were falling in love. Soon we became a couple. Our relationship was everything it should have been, almost as if our time together had been written for a novel. We grew closer and closer during the school year. We would go to the movies, go out to eat, go shopping and most of all be with each other for a long time. I could hardly sleep at night, just anticipating the next time I would see him and the upcoming weekend we would be together. I shared everything with him, even things I kept from my family and my best friend.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Just like every other day, I went to school, saw Brian and came home. I was in my own little world, living a fairytale life, when my parents called me in their room, and told my brother to go outside to watch T.V. “Sit down Minal.” My dad said, with a disappointment in his voice. I looked at my mother mother. We exchanged a bazaar look. My parents had found a picture of Brian and I. His arm was around me in the picture. We were sitting right next to each other. From where I come from girls are not even allowed to have guy friends. In our culture we have arrange marriages. You first get married and then learn to fall in love. Love before marriage is forbidden. We have to marry someone who is Indian, not only that but he/she must be from the same cast as you are, or the society doesn’t accept you. I saw my parents holding the picture that they had found in my purse. My heart was beating faster by the seconds. I didn’t know what to say. “Who is this guy? Why is his arm around you? Where did you meet him? How far have you gone with him? Are you pregnant?” My parents started asking questions, and they jumped to conclusions without knowing the full facts.
The fact that Brian is white made them even angrier with me. “How could you do this to us? You let us down. You were our pride.” My mother said, with tears in her eyes. I hurt them. I lied to them, just like every other time I had, when I went to go see him. “Mom, I am NOT pregnant. I wouldn’t do anything to let you guys down. I met him at Shannon’s birthday party, and I took a picture with him.” They were still upset with me, for the fact that I had taken a picture with a guy. I had let them down. My father raised his voice, “Do you know what this means? Do you know what would happen if anyone of our relatives were to find out about this? I would be kicked out of this society. Do you know what my friends and relatives think about you?” They thought that I was this perfect Indian girl, who doesn’t go to the parties, doesn’t associate with guys, and believes in Hinduism. It really hurt me when my...

As previously noted, the fact that Lady Teazle and Sir Peter aren't independently funny doesn't damage the efficacy of the humorous realization made in the wake of their separation that they actually do love one another. In this case, the characters involved seem to take a backseat to the setting of the joke and its impetuous nature; School is a comedy of situation. As much as the temperaments of the play's characters lend to the success of its attempt at humour, it is predominantly the droll circumstances and the background of the jokes that make them funny.
