After 3 days , one of Anupam’s near and dear cousin(his mom’s family) is getting married. And we are not being able to make it to the wedding , since we took leaves for diwali recently.And plus I am loaded with work! And as a friend said just few minutes back , work during recession is precious !

I know in today’s busy world’s its tough to attend all the weddings but then still some people are special. And more over I love attending weddings of family members ! No you got it wrong !! Not because it gives me chance to dress up etc and not because I can see latest fashions etc. People who know me closely know that I am not that kind of a person. Getting ready and that too in sari and with jewellary and plus Aryan , I find it a pain. But still I love attending weddings of family members !

It gives me chance to meet people and chit chat. I enjoy the laughters in the house. I love the childhood stories that people come out with when they meet long lost uncles and aunts. And yes I love all of this , even when its Anupam’s side of family for the twinkle in his eyes. I get to hear his childhood stories , some of which I have already heard 10 times. And I get to bond with his family members. Plus this girl’s wedding is more special , coz she is the youngest of the troop and everyone finds a kid sister in her πŸ™‚

Anyways ..Cannot help it. And then there is another story. There are 2 more weddings in Feb. This time in his dad’s side of family. And we had plans to attend both. I mean atleast we have booked tickets.

BUT BUT BUT , here in office they are talking about a short project , which will save milions to company and the time line is between Jan1st to Mar 15th and I am the senior most member of the team πŸ˜› Now will I get leave for 7 days ..million dollar question!


Shalabh’s Wedding

February 9, 2008 at 5:49 pm | Posted in Photos, Wedding | 5 Comments

Shalabh’s wedding was the most awaited event in our house and every one was so very excited. This includes especially me. I was also apprehensive about Aryan and the cold weather there and his health and behaviour.

All went pretty well , atleast better than my expectation. Aryan did got fever for a day and red cheeks due to cold. But it was not too bad and he enjoyed the attention and fun. He became clingy on the wedding day , because of too many people and noise. Due to which I was not able to dance in Barat , I would have felt bad , only if I knew dancing. Though every one else felt bad for me not able to dance much in my brother’s wedding dur to Aryan , only I know that he was my saviour πŸ™‚

This wedding also gave a chance to Anupam to meet my family closely and spend time with them. Since we stay quite far from our relatives , we only get to meet out parents in the little vacatons we get. Meeting other relatives always remain on wish list only.

Its already a week from the wedding and we are still in the same mood. I am still getting dreams from the wedding , still feeling tired and sleep, laundry is still waiting and there is still a unpacked suitcase. All what we did since we are back is downloaded and uploaded pics πŸ™‚

Now that the bride and groom are back from their honeymoon too and its a monday today..I think its high time to be back to work. Before I do are some pics for you all πŸ™‚

Brother’s Wedding And Related Thoughts

January 9, 2008 at 8:01 am | Posted in Wedding | 3 Comments

Preparing for my brother’s wedding is what’s all over my mind these days. He is my only sibling and so this is the most awaited event for us after my wedding.

Wedding is in Feburary first week and we managed to get 6 days off.Which ofcourse does not sound sufficient to my brother and my parents.But we could not manage more.

This will the first wedding for Anupam and Aryan in my side of family and so perhaps Anupam is all the more excited. He wants to be at his best and wants to make Aryan a prince charming. And this has resulted in a LONG LONG shopping list.

Men are men when it comes to shopping.So inspite of everything, shopping is irritating for both the men in my household. I really wish to order and get delivered , apparels and accessories just as grocery πŸ™‚ As of now , every weekend goes in shopping and handling two irritated and tired men πŸ˜€

Aryan will get lot of attention. I am thrilled at the thought of his reaction to the attention and the people. At the same time I am worried. As of now he demands lot of attention from me. If he gets clingy to me during the wedding, it will be tiresome. Being the only sister , I would be needed in almost all the ceremonies and it will not be fun for anyone if I will have a clingy /crying toddler with me. Just hoping for the best.

Having a new member in the family is always a mixed feeling. She is sweet and cheerful. She is mature and smart. I hope ,I wish and I believe that she would gel along well with our family, Keep our fingers crossed.

My brother is not too younger to me.In fact we have never shared a Elder Sister-Younger Brother kind of relationship. But still , inspite of me being married , it is hard to imagine that he is getting married. I mean , I never thought he is such a grown up boy. I know he is 28 , I know he is mature , I know he is intelligent, I know he is settled in his job , but MARRIAGE ? It is funny , and I wonder how would my parents feel to see us getting married , when even I feel the way I do πŸ™‚ And I wonder , will I be ever able to imagine Aryan growing too old to get married. Infact , I guess now I know why mothers get insecure with daughter in laws …hehhehe.
But fact is life moves on faster than we can imagine. No wonder I would be writing the story after their wedding in an year or two πŸ˜‰

As of now , I wish them all the best. May they continue to find love , happiness and solace in each other’s company forever.
