Baraat Aayi Kya?

By Priyanka Swami

Besides the action-packed band baaja, and animated baraatis, what else does seem to characterise a north indian wedding these days? Tick. Tick. Tock.

Awedding is a wedding but a North Indian wedding is more than a wedding! These days, beyond being a wedding! Wink. Wink. Well yes, weddings in North India can get super confusing. So much so that our very own jyotish can’t figure out if it’s because of the ever-furious shani or occasionally frenzied mangal. But from where does the confusion come from?

Well, I can only say, “Main samay hoon”, and Mahabharata begins! Indeed, time is what we want most, but what we use worst. And North Indian weddings are an absolute testimony to this ever-lasting maxim. Oh c’mon, your own brother’s baraat entered the wedding venue around 12 AM! Remember you were annoyed with your brother’s friends dancing like there’s no tomorrow, and the bride’s sister asked for more shagun since she waited for long to grab the juttis! And the stubborn fufaji, the one who got mad at a waiter just because ras malai went ‘out of stock’. Oh, how can you forget the tantrums one of your sisters-in-laws threw after she wasn’t received by the bride’s family at the entrance! What was she thinking? That she will turn in at midnight and she would be welcomed to flower showers. Somebody please tell her that attending a wedding is not a life goal, and people have to get back and sleep to welcome a new dawn every day. Your brother’s wedding is no exception to this rule. Not even mine.

Such are North Indian weddings—high on antics and drama! Family and friends are invited to a wedding not to just drink, dance and dine, but to bless the couple. And by the time a North Indian baraat reaches the venue, half of the guests have left already. So, what’s the point?

Have we ever thought that we trip time vehemently while drowned shamelessly in the dhup chik dhup chik of the moment? But who complains, right? Of course you are unmarried and get to dance out all the vodka at your friends/relatives’ weddings, if you think like this.
