The fun part: It’s one of those rare occasions when Indian parents let their kids loose and are not that strict. There’s food. Lots of it. In fact that’s why 90 % of the people turn up anyway. Everywhere you go, someone or the other is playing cards. And everyone bets big money. Indian weddings have this knack of getting people to cram themselves into tiny rooms and sleep on the floor. And they absolutely love it. Stuff gets misplaced. Lots of it. Safety pins, bobby pins, make up, pooja ki thali, shagun ke lifafe, and what not! Sister-in-laws legally have the right to steal the groom’s shoes. And get paid for it too! That’s the most fun part. There are more photo ops than a freakin’ Vogue cover shoot. Seriously. A wedding is the only time when Indian aunties abandon all pretences of "tehzeeb" and dance like crazy. This is easily one of the best things about an Indian wedding. "The Baraati Dance!", You meet relatives you didn't know even existed. And then there's an hour long introduction session with all of them. By the time the pheras start, everyone's exhausted. You might even catch an uncle or two snoring away happily in their chairs. While the mantras are on, the bride’s mom and aunties are preparing their tear ducts for the bidaai. The sobbing begins. Finally, its time for the bride to leave. You need a heart of stone and tear glands as dry as the Sahara desert to not cry in this situation.
