Indian festivities, come and go in the blink of an eye! Be it gruhapraveshams, naamkarans, shaadis, and of couse, the IPL, “India ka tyohaar” !
Each one of these, is a celebration of opulence and each in itself, is a festival of colours 🙂
I chanced upon a wedding last week, and since it was my cousin’s, I also happened to be a part of all the backstage drama!
What I observed and ROFL’ed 😀 about can be surmised in just about the following few points:
1) If you are 20 years old and above, unmarried and belong to the human race, rest assured, you are the next bride/groom 😛
2) It is a bad idea to go partying the previous night, because, ostensibly dozing in the mandap is unacceptable!
3) Else, make sure that the muhurtam (Auspicious time for performing ceremonies) is to be kept for late afternoon, or better still, the evening!
4) The lesser you eat, the more you are fed, the more you eat, well, the more you are fed! 😛
5) When your invitation says “No Presents Please”, get prepared to be flooded with flower bouquets of all sorts!
All said and done, Indian weddings are fun!
A celebration of style, grandeur and traditions, of glitz, glamour and jazz!
From the groom’s entrance, to the bride’s exit, I enjoy each one of the rituals and more 🙂
So here’s a toast,
to all the fun and food,
to all the music and dancing,
to all those aunties who wink and say, “you’re next!” and to all those colourful sarees and sherwanis.
Here’s a toast to all that makes a wedding what it is 🙂
