    It has been just over a month since I got married. Several people have asked me how it feels. One of the things that has certainly changed is the amount of cupboard space I have.

    As a bachelor I had the entire house to myself, things strewn across all cupboards. I am however proud of the fact that there was a serene-ness to the chaos. All the cupboards had my things in them, but there was no real randomness to the distribution. Clothes, books, photographs, household items, bills/vouchers, bank transactions etc. everything was arranged properly in separate shelves and I could easily retrieve anything I wanted without having to use a lookup table of the nature I created to remember which TV channel was on what channel number.

    However now, I'm resigned to owning just 50% of the cupboard space. Relatives and friends have however warned me that they all started off with 50% and consider me lucky if I have 25% of the space in a years' time. Cometh the kid and the cupboard space shrinks further, they sermonize.

    The other fascinating observation I've made in the last month is the influx of myriad shades of pink, orange, yellow, red, blue in the house. Its not just the cupboard where the clothes provide as many colours as a 1024 x 768 desktop can hold; sofa cushions/backrests need to have at least 2 hues, "bommai" potta mugs/cups make their entry, curtains need to be multicoloured and matching the shades on the bedspreads, the bedspreads and bedsheets need to have cartoon characters or cuddly animals splashed liberally and so on, so forth. Thus far, the blessed refrigerator has escaped this treatment although I'm not sure how long it'll succeed in keeping at bay the hordes from the land of Multicolouria.
