Rendezvous with the mafia!!!
Enjoyin some cool drink
I have found the time to blog after a long interval.I shall narrate to u the incidents since june 1.The kelkars(chinmays family) had arranged for a bus frome thane to pune.It was to leave at about 1:30 pm, but due to some problems we were an hour late.We were to pick up friends and relatives along the way.As we had to pickup the kulkarnis in panvel (kelkar,s family friends) , so we could not connect to the expressway before panvel and had to go into the city.We picked them up and made our way, but there was a hell lot of traffic.
After an hour in the traffic we finally got through it.Just then a group of ruffians got into our bus and stopped it.They claimed that our bus had scraped their car.They even called 15-20 goondas(mafia men) with lathis to beat the driver up.After half an hour of haggling and reasoning with them they accepted Rs.2000 and let us go.We had to give them our address and phone no.s.We were 3 hrs late to pune and the ladkiwaale feared that we might be backing out of the marriage.
We changed our clothes quickly after entered the hall and the bhattji(wedding maker)
started the ceremonies quickly.After the puja was over we had dinner and then their was a classical music program after that.It ended at !2:30 AM.Then we went to Sunanda Atyas flat nearby with Grandpa, Grandma and the Apte family.
