Abstract.... and nothing else.

A Lot of dirty water seems to have flown under bandra Creek since the last time I blogged .. (oh the side effects of living in Mumbai!!!)… and the blogosphere is buzzing like never before…

I had the immense fortune and misfortune of visiting my native town… misfortune … coz my parents were outta town and I was welcomed by a locked and dusty home… but then home is still home… :) …

In what will be a precedence for all of my friends.. a dear friend got married in what was a typical Punjabi marriage.. lots of fun( I was the unfortunate soul entrusted with the responsibility of buying condoms for him.. a “gift” from all of us .. he he he).. lots of friends… lots of cocktail and finally on a chilly January early morning my dear friend abhishek got married and doomed… bhai… teri life khatam… di end :)..here is hoping him all the very best…

They say no one knows how to party like the punjabi’s … and I couldn’t agree more.. the zeal.. the enthu… and the will to party is unmatched… this is a gujju saying this… Punjabis do rock!!!

Its amazing to see your friends getting married off… I mean… one moment you see them doing all sorts of stuff with you… playing cricket… going to school… exchanging xeroxs just b4 exams… and the other moment they are exchanging pleasantries with ppl they remotely know in their reception.

Anyways… here are my five quick “must haves” in a North-Indian Wedding:

1. Thou shalt have a cocktail party b4 the reception.. (to appease the tipsy sponges of the town)…
2. Thou shalt have a DJ playing at your reception.. ( playing ONLY Punjabi numbers and Vengaboys.. braaaaazzzeeeeelllll )
3. Thou shalt have your wedding in a huge farmhouse/banquet with 5000 ppl attending :)
4. Thy wedding MUST go on till atleast 4 am in the nite.
5. Thy Baraat MUST play these songs “Ye desh hai veer jawanon ka” and “Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai “… these songs rock in a baraat!!!!


Anyways… I am back in Mumbai. That’s the end of that.

Now… lets talk about my favourite topic… L……O……..V……..E

Yeah.. its strange coming from a guy… but guys also do have feelings… and I daresay.. more than the gals out there…

I have been in love twice… once it was beautiful…. Before I broke it off… coz she was lying to me all along… and that’s something I cannot tolerate.. no matter what… and the second time I fell in love was unfinished… bcoz I fell in love with my best friend… and she didn’t.. well.. wish she did…

And then I look around me .. and then I see love everywhr… two of my best friends fell in love and got married… and just seeing them together and happy together fills me with glee…. But then there is this other friend of mine who has fallen in love four times in 4 years and has got her love all the time!!! So the deduction is that some ppl are plain lucky in love… while some are not…

Loving love… living love… wanting to be in love… all over again!


Cheers!

vitruvian said...

yea,....u ARE a hopeless romantic....

and i couldn't agree more with u on punjabi weddings...i'm a south indian and i ALWAYs complain that tho the food is gr8 our weddings as such are VERY boring...

about friends getting married..well i'm only 21 and have witness a batch mate getting married already...but currently thats only freaking me out..
i guess in 3 more years i can start feeling happy for them...

and totally true..some ppl are just lucky in love...they always get whom they want...its somehow always ThEIR game..*sigh*..

cheers!

Cool post...and gotta know frm one of ur comment that u r a Piscean...DITTO :D
The part abt marriage...playing "ye desh hai veer jawaanon ka" had me in splits. Till date I hv failed to understand why they play this song in Indian baraat??!!!

gunj said...

MiNi said...

yeah sure the punju rock n booze the wedding off.. infact they can booze netime in the given year :P
So all i can construe is Mr rahul loves to be in love.. but pity others who marry :P
Nalayak :P

Rahul... in City of Dreamz said...

@Nidhi: Welcome Back ma'am! :) .. and yeah this song is the baraat anthem of sorts! i guess shaadi kar raha hai is liye to veer hai :)

@Gunj: Arre Google Image search hai na! photo copy karo aur template pe upload karo.. simpul!

@Mini:Arre waah! u got me thr buddy.. i guess thats why they say its shaadi ka laddoo :)

Kalyan said...

Rahul... in City of Dreamz said...

@Kalyan: I agree sir! Just that eternal love is in short supply these days :)
