My Guest Post on marriage book website


There are so many things that you get reminded of when I say the word 'Wedding' - Bright Colored Clothing, Exquisite Jewellery, Shy Expressions,Colorful Decorations, mantras, rituals, Flowers, Vows, Delicious Food, Music, Dance and what not

Every wedding would leave us with some beautiful memories and your own one ....Its something that would stay etched in your mind forever....

Lot of moments - touching, emotional, sentimental and some funny or Stupid?

I have written a guest post on Pramod Lohia's website. The link is given below. Thank you Pramod for the opportunity.

  7. That brought back a whole of memory on my own wedding. I was so religiously keeping the thali well below, and every one were shouting the same way. Just the difference is - thali tying happens twice for us...2 similar thalis are tied one after another. Phew..that is a heart thumping moment isn't it?

  11. :D. I've attended a few Brahamin weddings. They're always entertaining. (with the little Kashi trip and all ;)) So was this post of yours.
    Thank you for taking us to your wedding. It feels like you just got married. So now -- Congratulations. :D

    PS: I didn't know that unmarried girls don't wear the 9-yard saree.

    1. Thanks Divya. Even movie-makers dont know that fact...They love making stupid jokes about Brahmin community and show unmarried girls in 9 yards ha ha

  13. Lol...cool post. funnily written. Never attended a tamil wedding. I think I did attend a half tamil wedding of my school classmate. Her husb was a Tamil Brahmin and I think it was the inlaws wish to tie the sari tamilian style. :)So, did your aunt's blessing come true? LOL..
