Hey Liza!!!!!


This insight reminded me of my all time wish of having a completely simple and sober wedding ceremony of my own. As part of my own brother's wedding I realized with all the 'paparazzi' the bride and the groom end up not enjoying their own wedding! But that really is digressing from the issue at hand, which I feel your cousin has hit a bull's eye on!


I wouldn't go into details of the write up per se but rather for me what it attempted to bring out in a metaphoric sense or what an instance was true as a whole for a lot of other things: that which is true of the society as a whole! Just the other day my friend and I were dwelling on the hypocrisy with which the society expects each individual to function in the society. Where any action or reaction different from the conventional is considered rebellious and your heart's opinion is exactly what you are supposed to keep to yourself. It indeed is an irony that the very happiness and peace which the society claims to bring with its so called proper functioning is what is the lost cause for each one of us as individuals.


A great attempt from your cousin and kudos to her for that! Thanks for posting it and for the pm!

Part of the reason why I dread marriage! =))

I think we need mainstream society to read things like these!

And those fae smiles...I remember by sister's wedding...at the reception she was having a real nice loss of temper. She was shoving all the gifts in our faces. And she was smiling at the guests too.
I was openly annoyed during the reception,  remember.

The garland jaymala ceremony...well it was more of a game than anything else.
Loll...no one enjoys their own wedding...its a much proven fact LOL

As for all the restrictions...I hate that about the Indian society...always all the restrictions and "responsibility" on the woman.
