Cousin's Marriage

Last weekend, we went to Bharuch to attend Rita's marriage. Rita is my mother's sister's daughter and she is software engineer, doing job at surat.
This marriage was a bit different for me than others as most of the relatives are from village, not from city like other marriages I attended. and I clearly see the differences... There was no hotel, guest house bookings, all sleeps at Masa's home together, at night u could see people sleeping everywhere, where ever they found place n bed, in gallery, in lobby, in parking... and add on that, there was lot of mosquitoes, u couldn't sleep without blanket and yet no one complains. That's the real India I guess..... real difference between People from City and Village, City people are to more used to comfort and cosiness while Village people are just happy to being together and kick of comforts......
Marriage was good and I enjoyed every bit of that, meeting my cousin brothers after a long time...
After marriage, we came back to surat and I was surprised by see lot of Barat(Jan) in city. There was some hundreds marriages on that day in city and I wonder it is the same city where 20 people from Diamond Industries committed suicide due to Job loss & Financial Crisis.... People saying its recession time, very bad time to spend each rupee and Then there was hundreds of marriages happening in same city in a day.... I remembered one of my friend's brother said one day, He doesn't mind expenses of his wife pregnancy bills.... He is very happy to pay that.. I thought after all u have to earn that much even if u doesn't mind it.. But that's the India Buddy.....
