These are some pics of my bro Chinmays wedding.This particular picture consists of their family, consisting of Ujjwal mavshi (xtreme left), Manasi, R.D. kaka, and Chinmay himself.
This is just a flowery* ritual.

Bright lights for a bright future.
The Couple at Kelkar's house
Got up at 6:30 and stood in line for usage of the toilet and the bathroom.(Sunanda atya's flat=1 room kitchen;no. of people= 11 !!!).My turn came a about 8:30 and i was ready by nine.We reached the punyai hall by 10 am.Almost all of the rituals were over by then.Had breakfast.After loitering about for half an hour we discovered that the bride's cousins had stolen Chinmays shoes and had hidden them in their room.Since it was unethical to enter their premises we could not retrieve them.I had lunch at bout 1 pm.All the close relatives were to eat at last at about 2 pm.Then the bus arrived at 3:30 pm and we reached Chinmay's house at 7 pm.After some more rituals i had a light dinner and i went home.Finally the day had come to an end.
Marriage is the perfection of what love aimed at,ignorant of what it sought.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.
To keep your marriage brimming;
With love in the wedding cup;
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.
A sucessful marriage requires falling in love many times,
always with the same person.
