The Big Fat Indian Wedding

This was taken on 25th Jan 2007 - the day my friend Trita got married. The reason I mentioned the date is because a Hindu wedding normally doesn't happen in just one day, and though the ceremony started on 25th, I guess by the time I took this shot, we were well into 26th. Thankfully the wedding was in Bhopal, which is around 700 km south of Delhi and the chill there was bearable. The only people who weren't feeling sleepy were the two pujaris (priests) who were chanting endless mantras. But the good part about the wedding was that I made a bunch of cool friends there and we had a ball while Trita looked absolutely bored going through all those rituals.
