My friend Beta wedded Pavethra last Friday, the 29th of December. The wedding took place at Nagercoil. Beta was right about the warning on how the actual wedding will be. He said that it will be a circus and he will be the clown, well, I can’t say that I was disappointed. Circus it was! Yes, there was a band, and two funny looking dwarf men dancing around the band with colorful ribbons tied to their hands; and lo, behind the band, gallantly walked the groom with a blue suit and a huge white garland.
Pavethra was clad in a cream coloured saree and the church wedding was all of 20 mins! From Chennai, six of us attended his wedding which included, Deepu, Suzy, Arvind, Prasita, Smrithi, and myself.
Apart from us, there were nine of Beta’s other friends who are all part of his aquarium hobbyists community. Beta and some other aquarium hobbyists run a community called http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/. It is an open forum for all aquarium hobbyists. Feel free to visit it if you’re another one of those fish/sea creature fan!
After the wedding, Arvind, Prasita, and myself joined the nine of them to venture out into the tiny town. Purpose? To collect sea creatures, coral, et al, what else can it be? But since they could'nt find anything, we finally found ourselves on the sands of a sparkling beach at 4:00 in the afternoon getting roasted under the sun like retards!!
All in all, it was a great trip.
Will try get hold of some pictures of the couple and the wedding, and post them in my next post.
