My bestestestestestestest friend from childhood is getting married this weekend!! Yay!!!
Its the time for waxing, facials, threading, make-up, sarees, mehendi, dancing, nostalgia, more memories and awesome food!!
Presenting a sneak peak into the mehendi!! Less design owing to a drive back home on my moped!!
When my friends get married, nostalgia invariably has to wash over me! And today, I am remembering a lot:
two chotis; a makeshift punjabi dress out of frock, leggings and mums duppatta and bharatnatyam classes;
silly gossip aka whose mum is more dangerous when you don’t study (mind you, we were cheering our own moms to top the danger list!);
a secret group of 5 people with identification badges, agreement (yes sir, this CA was into agreements way before I became a CA!), recorded meetings, a treasury box; friendship bands; plank-chit (bhoot-bulao-karyakram);latest gossip sent across saat-samundar (7 seas) after she moved to US via hand-written-longer-than-our-exam-supplementary love letters!; discussing biscuits (code name for guys) classified into parle-g (regular nerdy guy), vanilla flavor (boy next door), chocolate biscuit (the dudes) and khari-biscuit (desi versions trying to be videsi) and the bitter biscuits (vulgar ones)!!!; silly code names given to class-loafers and teacher-chamchas; ooooo! The list goes on.. This is the weekend of fun, dressing up and memories!! See ya all soon! I am sooooo excited!!
