Khem Cho? MajaMa? Thank God 2018 is coming to an end. No more big fat Indian weddings or load shedding to look forward to!
Yup, Those very same weddings where ladies drape slippery sarees with more shimmer and shine than the sun while men are attired in more colours than those in the rainbow. If you don’t have the fragile dance floor gyrating frenziedly to the latest Bollywood chartbusters, it ain’t a celebration!
The Big Fat Indian Wedding is about everything except the actual ceremony. It is about flaunting the hitherto unheard of picturesque destination, an A-listers guest list, lip-smacking world cuisine, the bride’s designer lehenga, and the groom’s sherwani.
It is all about creating that Perfect Internet Moment of a spectacular show!
What untold stress really! Don’t agree?
Let me explain.
The big fat Indian wedding, therefore, isn’t just an ostentatious celebration of money. It is also about acing the competition and asserting power.
Pan them all you want, someone is laughing all the way to the bank!
No clue? Err SabyaSachi? Manish Malhotra? Lake Palace?
On a serious note, this writer wonders, in the wake of farmers’ chests being flattened, if only the above mentioned excess fat could be trimmed and some of it used to adopt a few villages? Too much to expect maybe when your 27 floored Antilla overlooks the largest slum of Asia.
Just ditch this list, invest in education, get a terrific degree, learn a skill set that can make you financially independent. Put the money saved to good use by buying yourself a warm nest.
Because marriage is the wonderful solemnizing of love between two equal partners That is the key.
Now back to some normal weddings!

Chetan Bhagat had no business slut shaming Uorfi Javed or any other woman. If he wants to 'guide' young men in the 'right direction' then he should take accountability for his words.
Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s bestselling authors, thought it was an ingenious idea to slut-shame Uorfi Javed, an Indian actress and influencer, at the Sahitya Aaj Tak literature festival.
“Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”
Uorfi Javed responded with a video on her Instagram stories calling out Bhagat’s bluff. She shared the screenshots of his previous chat conversations with Ira Trivedi, author and yoga instructor, which came to light during the #MeToo movement.
While boys are taught to naturally own the space they enter, girls are taught to give up, to accommodate, to adjust since "it is their primary responsibility to keep families and relations together."
Yesterday, I was watching these 4 young girls around 16 – 17 years old play badminton. They were having fun, goofing around with all 4 of them equally involved in the game.
In some time two of their male friends joined them, and as part of round robin, the 2 boys replaced two of the girls. All good.
As the play continued, I started noticing a change in the way the game was being played. The shuttle was played most of the times between the two boys and there was a sense of competition and aggression brought in. The other 2 girls playing soon starting losing interest in the game as they hardly got any game time. Even if the shuttle came towards them, the boy in their team would move and play that shot. They soon moved to the sidelines as the boys continued to play.
