1. Why is it that the boy’s family is considered oh so superior in a traditional Hindu set up?
2. Why is it that the girl is given wise advice on how she should bend over backwards to adjust? I am sure the groom gets no such advise ….
3. Why is the food always fried and if not – dollops of ghee/butter is poured into it?
4. Why do weddings happen always in winters? It is so chilly in the night brrrrrr!
5. Why does some one always throw a tantrum? It is full on drama time, with tears, sulks and tantrums, followed by the jhappis and smiles
6. Why do the pheras have to happen in the wee hours of the morning – in this weather?
Ahhh the long commutes to farm houses, the frazzled nerves, the meetings with long lost and forgotten relatives
one never wanted to meet ……
Ahhh the kulfis and gol gappas and gajar halwas and piping hot gulab jamuns …
Ahhh the dhol beats, the tired sleep deprived but fun filled nights
The booze drunk on the sly, the stolen puffs of cigarettes …
The bottles of alcohol hidden in car boots, along with ice, soda and glasses. Apparently this set up is called car-O-bar
Big Fat Punjabi Weddings are the best – especially if they are in the family.
Now I better get dressed and leave for the pheras
