Of wedding season and My involvement



Yes, this is whay has been keeping me busy and unabling to catch up with all your blogs.
It was my one of closest friend's wedding this 15th of Feb in Chandigarh. With this, all my friends are married now and the
'peer pressure' has reached the danger level. Now another wedding and it will overflow and flood.
Anyways, coming back to the post, the wedding was in Chandigarh, and since my friend's father-in-law is
deputy registrar in Panjab Univ Chandigarh, the staying arrangements were made in the University Campus guest house, and to add to the excitement, the youth festival was going on- Valentines day special. :D
We reached the campus on 14th Feb in the evening and it was time to check out the stuff, gawk and have some fun.. ;)
Divya- another friend and I started for a stroll in the campus and wow!! what a campus. We are proud of our GND Univ campus at Amritsar, but the pride kept sweeping away every second we looked at the PU campus. It covers a large estate- almost 2 complete sectors of the capital!!
Now, first place we landed at was the Giant Wheel :D, bought tickets and stood waiting for our turn to get on and cherish the childhood memories..
It was damn fun, loved every bit of it, though Divya was a li'l scared in the beginning, but with increasing velocity, she too started enjoying it.
As we walked more in the campus, the Rose garden had Rose festival going on too, had loads of fun over there- lovely flowers, lovely people- baby show was going on too :D
Check out some clicks..




Okay, since we were both newbies to the campus, we thought of asking someone if there was something else worth seeing in the campus, we saw a guy approaching us and before he could say something, I shot the question at him, I guess it was a blunder, the guy was he- Basanti (of the legendry Sholay). Once he started talking, we could not find an escape. OMG!! I had a funny thought about him- that he might have had a notion that if he shut his mouth even for a moment, it would stick so he kept talking to avoid that :P
Finally, I had to tell him that we ll see him some-other-time..

After a long stroll, it was time to get ready for the function- ring ceremony, we went back put on our dancing shoes and reached the venue..
For those who are not acquainted with what a Punjabi wedding is like, it is huge, grandeur, pomp and show, food, dance and drinks!!

The function was good, the USP was the powerpoint slide show they ran of the growing up pictures Bride and the Groom since their birth till date, celebrating togetherness.. :)

Next day was the wedding, it was really grand, here are the pictures..




For a change, the bride did not cry at all at the time of vidai.. Albeit all her family was crying, and for a change, I found myself tearful too though I despise public display of emotion and I dint shed even one tear at my closest friend's wedding few months back!


And for all my girl friends, the main attraction of the post is- finally, I managed to get my hair curled!! Since I have very straight hair, that curls dont ever last even 30 minutes and I badly wanted to have a different hair do, for I have been monotoned with my hair. But this time, hats off to the hair dresser, they lasted one whole day, though he had guaranteed the spirals to stay till the next hair wash, but I knew, one brush down and they ll be gone.. But anyways, i loved them :)
