STAID AND BORING

March 8, 2014

I am not impulsive by nature and due to problems I have faced, I have even more inhibitions.                                                                                          Indian weddings,especially Punjabi weddings have several functions spread over three to four days and each cermony is accompanied by singing and dancing. The most free-style is performed by the  ‘baraatis’ (those who accompany the bridegroom). The bridegroom dressed in traditional attire rides a mare while his friends and relatives dressed to the nines and women loaded with jewelery, dance to the music played by the band. The dance becomes even wilder when the baraatis have had more than a glass or two. I enjoy the spectacle but for the life of me, I cannot dance.                                                                                                                                                                      Another occasion when everyone has a valid reason to go crazy is the celebration of festival of colors ‘Holi.’ People apply color  and drench others with colored water. Bad rituals have crept in, making this lovely festival an occasion to harm or indulge in unlawful activities. There is singing and dancing afterwards. I have not played Holi for a long,long time.
