Okay,lemme tell you a story. A very short one, okay?Even though that’s not my forte. Finishing a story in short, I mean.-.-
Well,yeah. So,there’s this guy. He studied in one of the best business schools of the nation. IIM,yeah? He is from north India. He met a girl there who was from an eastern state of India. They became friends and fell in love. The girl’s parents came to meet the guy’s family. They have an arguement. Girl’s family storms off. And then the guy’s parents decide that it’s not worth it and their kid’s happiness is what’s most important. So,they meet again and sort it out. Now, the marriage is on. In less than a week the ceremony would take place in the bride-to-be’s state. The guy’s extended family is going to attend the wedding. Hope they have an awesome life ahead. THE END.
Now,does that sound familiar?Bollywood buffs?Story of a b-wood movie?2 states,yeah?
Hmmmmmmm. Exactly that. Slight little variations here and there. The guy’s my uncle. And the place the girl is from?KOLKATA!!! And I am a part of the family going for the out-of-state wedding!I am so excited.*squeals*
I have only ever attended the north Indian weddings, ofcourse. The weddings here are wonderful. Rich and with deli-freaking-cious food. Mm hmm. *sighs* But I have always wanted to attend weddings from different cultures. And I heard the Kolkata weddings have those crown thingies and the leaves covering the bride’s face and men wearing dhotis and stuff. And finally!*smirks smugly*
Now, Kolkata peeps?I want this to come off as a suprise. That’s why I am so excited. I want to experience the rituals of different cultures. I am assuming, this would be fun. *grins* But tell me seriously. Should I know something before I set foot in the foreign territory? I have visited Kolkata before, yeah. But the wedding is going to be altogether different from a touristy visit, I suppose. What’s special about weddings in your cultures,people? If you wanna,do tell me. I am so excited!*excited squealing*
The differences in cultures are so exciting!*squeals again*
And I am getting too excited and squealing too much.-.-
Don’t mind me.*waves her hand dismissively*
I am just…excited. *grins widely*
