Titled topic is only about the expense we Indians we incur in marriages.
We can’t deny the fact that Indian parents care more about how grand the marriage should be organized than the bride and groom.
Starting from Invitation card to expensive one time costumes- Grand halls to unlimited varieties of food all their savings are lost for other unwanted celebrations apart from marriage. Let me highlight…
- 1) World’s Costliest suit for Groom and ultra pro expensive Saree for Bride both stays in the cupboard for eternity after the day of marriage.
- 2)Mighty Make up… Sorry for taking dig at this essential whatever… I am not mentioning cost here but sure we can estimate an average individual’s one month salary…… for ruining a healthy face with multi-layer creams into a 80’s white ghost.
- 3)Food – I am talking about typical Indian Veg recipes that has more than 50 varieties of side dishes which obviously people don’t eat all at once and ultimately goes to dustbin. Please note this is current generation atrocities. Back in 90’s and early 2000 our grand parents followed simple yet mind blowing dishes. There were just vada, payasam, green veggie, sambar, rasam followed by curd and its awesomeness can’t be matched now.
- 4) Photography – I agree photos are memories and we cherish for capturing those moments for rest of the life. But the cost of pre wedding, post wedding photo shoot.. My point here is celebrities can afford it, normal people can’t but they don’t understand this fact and want to create their celebrity moment.
Affliction : Spending all your savings for one day show off
Boon : Show off.
“Life is simple and so we are.. Its better and peaceful if we understand the difference between WANT and NEED…”
Meanwhile I am happy to announce that my marriage date has been fixed on 4th of November…. Excited😊😊😊
