Permanent Roommates

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 50; the fiftieth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. In association with ​Soulmates: Love without ownership by Vinit K Bansal. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

Being the founder of this event, it gives me immense pleasure to be taking part in its fiftieth edition. And what an apt theme that gels quite well with a series of comic strip I am sharing on Facebook daily for the past three weeks. Permanent Roommates, as I have named it after a web series on YouTube, is a light-hearted take on my year-old marriage. It has become quite popular among my wife's and my friends and family. I hope you all — my family on the blogosphere — too like it.

Another day in the life of Uttara and Vipul

When Vipul questions Uttara's attire

What Uttara feels like doing when Vipul acts like a dictator

What Uttara feels like doing when Vipul finds fault with her cooking

So these are a few glimpses from our life. More in this series are available on my Facebook page. Here is one bonus strip I have not posted there yet.

So, all those who have not tied the knot yet, don't get afraid: it's all in good humour ;)

Hi Vipul, congratulations upon completing an year! :)

I absolutely love the way you have defined living together being a married couple in contrast to BAT's topic this time! The bitstrips were a great twist. I feel living together with each other for years. Knowing when your partner snores or plays his symphony is also being a soulmate. :D

I liked the fourth one the best.
Nice work and good to see you at BAT again :-)

Hi Vipul,

Congratulations upon completing one year of marital bliss. I absolutely loved the comic strips and some of it made me roll on the floor laughing.

Enjoyed it.

Welcome Back to your own Home :-) Now we know why you were absent on Blog-a-ton :-) I liked the eye brows comment, I never miss to say it whenever my better half returns from her customary trip to a beauty parlour.
