Meet Karishma Walia from Bangalore over whom the internet is losing its plot today. The latest icon of ‘girl power’, Karishma just refused to marry a guy because he doesn’t like dogs. Originally from Bengaluru, she presently works in Gurgaon with Deloitte India. Her family was recently in talks to get her married to a guy from a well-off family based out of New Delhi. All was well, until the one bone of contention arose. Karishma’s dog, Lucy. The guy stated in no uncertain terms that he doesn’t like dogs, more so his mother, and that there wouldn’t be a place in the house for her dog. Subsequently, she told him that she couldn’t marry him if that was the case. Her dog was her priority.
Here’s a glimpse into the hilarious WhatsApp conversation that ensued. Notice the timing. The guy clearly had a sleepless night after hearing this, and urging her to reconsider pings her at 6:30 am. Unfazed, Karishma takes her own sweet time and replies back to him after 9 am.
So, what was her family’s reaction? When BuzzFeed got in touch with the girl she is believed to have said that her mother still thinks she made the wrong move by bringing up her dog, and calling off the marriage to a good-looking, well-placed guy.
While family pressure persists on the girl who believe that he was an excellent match for her, the boy in question hasn’t lost hope yet. In a bid to make her reconsider he ends up making an ass of himself all over again with his superficiality and narrow-mindedness. Take a look.
In her chat with BuzzFeed, she said the guy would tell her to always prioritise family over career. But after learning about his thoughts for her dog she was utterly repelled. And decided to put the final nail in the coffin.
You go, girl!
