Memories of a Wedding 2

Thursday, October 07, 2010

A week before we were to leave for Bombay Mummy arranged a full day Get-Together of all my School and Childhood Friends----and cooked up a fabulous Meal for us.I still remember the Fun I had that day----I was the first among the group to get married----and there was so much Excitement and Noise when we all met----Daddy said that the house sounded like a Fish Market!!!That day my Friends applied "Mehendi" or Henna to my Hands and Feet and all of us had a Ball---Singing and Dancing till after Dinner---that was when they all left amidst a flood of Tears-----the poignant sadness of Parting and the end of an Era for me---I was finally leaving my Childhood behind!!
Finally all packed and ready,we boarded the Train----and the slow journey to Bombay began!!!For me each second was bringing me nearer to the best day of my Life---while my Parens were weighed down with the anxiety of getting everything to move smoothly----without a single hitch!!Our private compartment was full of Rice,Dry Fruits,Ghee and Trunkloads of Clothes and other stuff---luckily there used to be very large 1st.Class Compartments those days---or we'd have needed two of today's size to fit everything in!!Thanks to the heavy Rain and Flooding in certain regions our 26 hour Journey turned into a 36 hour one----the Train had to crawl at a Snail's pace in certain places---the three of us sisters along with Daddy would stand in the Doorway of the Compartment then---holding conversations with the Locals much to Mummy's dismay---she was worried sick about being robbed!!I remember this Journey so well---every detail is indelibly imprinted on my mind----while I wanted to reach Bombay really fast---I was also paradoxically enjoying this Journey a lot---each Station on the way had it's own culinary specialities to offer----and not people to lose such an opportunity we literally gorged ourselves---we were spoiled for choice--and besides Train Journeys anytime,anywhere always make our Family ravenous!!Besides the sight and smell of everything was very appetising----the preparations were extremely tasty and wholesome---everything was organic and pure---and we were happy!!!
It was an experience I still cherish---our slow travel helped me spend a longer time drinking in the Beauty and Essence of rural India---to reach out to total strangers with a smile and a wave of my hand----to really experience the Heart of my beloved Country!!As we finally drew into Bombay Central Station---I was gripped with a totally different excitement and longing---to meet Sudhir again after a gap of two months!!!

    Your blog not only transported me to another place and time, it swept me back to the romantic excitement of being 17 and in love, when everything was supercharged with romance without the guardedness and skepticism that can creep in with the hard knocks of life. I'm not sure how you did it, but this blog really does feel like it comes from that young, excited Komal of 40 years ago! It was a joy to spend time with her! Can't wait for the next installment.

Memories of a Wedding--1

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

It is nearing our 40th Wedding Anniversary and my mind keeps flitting back---specially with the Festive Mood of the approaching Navratri---9 days 9 nights----beginning to make itself felt!!We were married on an "Ekadashi"---the day after Dasra (Dussehra)---the 10th Day of the waxing cycle of the Moon!!
I was 17 years old---hopelessly,madly in love and Sudhir was a 1000 miles away----just imagine our plight!!Those days to hear each other's voices we had to book Trunk Calls to each other---and those Telephone Operators loved eavesdropping on Conversations---specially of people like us---having a long distance Love talk!!Not just that---the Telephones were kept at places easily accessible from all parts of the House---so not in the most private of locations!!In Sudhir's case there was an extension in the Bedroom---so he at least had some access to privacy---in my case there'd be 4 pair of inquisitive ears straining to catch every nuance of our conversations---not forgetting the Telephone Operators!!Without going into too many details I guess my Readers must have realised how difficult it must have been for either of us to say "Something Stupid--like I Love You!!!" a la Sinatra style!!To resolve this situation we resorted to writing Letters---loooong ones---so thick and heavy that they needed to be sent by Registered Post!!!Daddy used to tease me mercilessly about how my Letter writing was a such drain on his Finances----that too with literally a Letter a Day!!
Mummy travelled to Mumbai to finalise all the Wedding arrangements---and buy my Gold Ornaments.My choice was not taken into consideration at all---at my age what did I know about Patterns and styles???Funny isn't it?I was old enough AND responsible enough to get married but was supposed to be an imbecile otherwise!!Not that it mattered---to me the only Jewellery that really counted could be counted on my fingers---the most important Gold Chain strung with Black Beads---my Mangalsutra----a proclamation of my married status--followed by items of lesser importance--a set of 4 Gold Bangles, Diamond Earrings ,Silver Anklets and Silver Toerings----a different variety for each toe---all a daily requirement!!!Buying my Trousseau was another Farce!!!Our local Cloth Merchant was instructed to show us his prized Stuff---on a Sunday when the Shop was closed to the Public.The 3 of us---Daddy,Mummy and I were escorted inside from the Shop's back door and then one after the other the Magic of Weave and Colour unfurled!!!I had never even imagined that that rustic little Shop housed such a magnificent hoard!!Reams of richly woven Gold and Silk Banarasi Brocades,French Chiffons,Kashmiri Chinons,Mysore Crepes,South Indian Silks and such just streamed past my wonderstruck eyes to land in an iridiscent Pile of shimmering Fabric at our feet!!My presence there didn't mean that I had a say in whatever was being set aside for buying----I just sat there in the middle--my neck swivelling left to right or vice versa--my mouth hanging open in wonder---and except for saying once"I like that Sari" to Mummy---which was quelled by a ferocious look by her---I subsided having understood that it wasn't mine to question why!!!After a 4 hour stint some 70 Saris were kept aside---a mixture of plain Cottons for Daily and Casual Wear along with Silks,Crepes,Chinons and Chiffons out of which the French Chiffons were plain---to be hand embroidered in Silk and Gold Thread!!!My parents had an awesome eye for Stuff----Daddy was also an Artist who enjoyed Painting on Fabric---there were a few Pastel Orgadies which he bought to paint on-----all in ll a very rich Collection of Saries----in every concievable Colour and Fabric---we all came home replete with Satisfaction!!The next day the Embroiderer---an old lady who knew me since my babyhood came over to discuss the Embroidery Patterns and Motifs---again it was Mummy who had the final say!!!All these things had to be readied well in advance as we were to travel from Chandigarh to Bombay as it was called those days!!My Trunks were packed with Saries,Sari Blouses---each with three quarter sleeves and Sari Petticoats one for each Sari----I needed plenty of these because I was to stop wearing my Salwar /Churidar-Kameezes after the Wedding.
These were not the only things that we were going to carry.Mummy also was carrying 50 kilos of old Basmati Rice and Canisters of Pure Ghee(Clarified Butter) for the Wedding Banquet as this was extremely expensive in Bombay those days---besides being of an inferior Quality!!!To add to the tension Trains weren't functioning regularly thanks to a Flood having inundated the Narmada and Tapi Regions of Gujerat----a part of our usual Train Route to Mumbai!!!

    Komalji - I don't know how you remember past events with so much clarity ..that is amazing! Sometimes I don't even remember events from the previous week LOL

Although I have to agree with the comments, that many times in the Indian weddings, the only one that does not truly enjoy it is the bride to be. I have to honestly say that it was like that for me, a lot of it is a blur because I was quite shy at the time. Now, I don't think anyone would call me shy LOL

    Congratulations on your anniversary!

Heheh, you're story about the phone and the letters reminds me of when my husband and I were first dating.... I was in Mexico, and phone calls were rare and expensive--and not private, as I had to take the calls in kitchen, which was the busiest part of the house. So I wrote him many letters (expensive letters, as they were sent by air mail). Thankfully I wasn't in Mexico all that long--we still had a long distance relationship, but 10 hours by car is a lot easier to handle than 10 hours by plane! (There were no direct flights at the time).

I bet the saris had been a sight to see! Though I can't imagine having so little say in your own wedding--I know that for my mom's wedding, grandma took care of most of the arrangements, but I made most of the decisions for our wedding, even though I delegated a lot of responsibility (as I was back in Mexico right before the wedding).

  Funny, I was just going thru my wedding suits yesterday, trying to see which ones I could alter.
We had gone to Amritsar to choose my wedding suits- mainly salwar kameezes- and imagine this- the WHOLE extended family went with my parents and me to choose those!! My mom's brother and his wife, my mom's sister, her daughter and grand daughter, my own sister, my cousin sister ansd brother and their mom, everyone chose one suit!
So each time I wore one of those suits, I remembered who chose them and the whole incident!

Sudhir and Animals

Sunday, October 03, 2010

Mary Anne's Blog reminded me of two separate incidents ----both connected to my darling Sudhir---a total Big City guy!!Having never lived in the open countryside he's extremely wary of any type of Animals---domestic or wild!!They literally scare the Hell out of him!!
This incident goes way back---May of 2003.Our younger daughter was living and working in Rochester N.Y.---and they lived in an apartment in the Pittsford area.Now Rochester as a whole is very green and this area in particular is very thickly wooded----so there were plenty of Birds and Butterflies around.Next to the Apartment Complex there was a little thicket of large shady Trees through which ran a shallow Stream with a wooden Bridge over it----highly fascinating and rustic for a City slicker!!1Sudhir loved walking around that area in the cool shade of those large trees and spending time on that bridge---the whole scene used to be full of gentle tranquility and muted Birdsong---something we don't get to enjoy often.On one of his morning walks he left the apartment around 11 a.m.---and within a few minutes he came rushing back---frightened and flustered!!His appearance was a bit of shock to me---I handed him a glass of Water first and then asked him what the matter was?What he had to say sent me into peals of Laughter---and my mirth wasn't appreciated by him at all!!It seems while he was ambling along under the Trees he felt warm breath on his shoulders---as a reflex action he turned around---and found himself face to face with a Deer!!Both stared at each other for maybe a minute before both turned tail and galloped off in different directions!!1What the Deer felt about the encounter I've no idea about---but my poor husband was terrified out of his wits!!It took a lot to convince him that Deer are harmless----but to no avail!!!Till today he maintains that the Deer was looking at him with a sinister glint in it's eye!!
In October 2004 Sayali and Kartik built their new home in Victor--another part of Rochester----surrounded by protected Forest land.It was a lovely house and the first time we visited there was just before Thanksgiving.On our Evening Walks in the Backyard Sudhir noticed some signs of what he thought was Dogs---and since the neighbours did have Dogs,Sayali too felt it must be them.It snowed a day before Thanksgiving and while we were eating Breakfast Sudhir noticed a shadow at the Kitchen door---and out of curiosity went to investigate it.It was a beautiful Russet coloured Fox--with a thick,lovely bushy Silver Grey tail sniffing around outside!!!I gasped with delight as I went down on my knees inside the Door----and there the two of us were---literally nose to nose through the thick glass----gazing curiously into each other's eyes---for a few enchanted seconds I gazed into those beautiful Golden eyes---full of a placid and idle curiousity about us----while my wonderstruck eyes returned the look---alive with excitement!!!In no time the Magic Spell was broken---Sudhir was pulling me away and remonstrating me for going so close the Door---what could that poor Fox have done to me through the thick Plate Glass???Panic and Fear have no Logic---for me it is one of my most prized moments----for him one of his most disturbing---he insisted that Sayali ring up her next door neighbours and warn them about the prowling Fox---they had young children!!
Each time I remember these two incidents they make me laugh and I spend my Day with a Smile on my Lips!!!

On the other hand, my DH dream is to own a farm and have plenty of animals...I always tell him that he is welcome to any farm as long as I have a home in the city LOL

Great story and your descriptions are priceless!

    Hee, that's hysterical! Poor Sudhir *grin*

Though I am not especially frightened by deer (unless they unexpectedly jump in front of my car at night, at least) I did once see one in a forest very up close and it was an unnerving experience. I knew it meant me no harm and that it was more frightened of me than I was of it, but deer up close (at least in Michigan--I've seen deer up close in other areas that are much smaller) are a lot bigger than they seem at a distance and if it had felt threatened and kicked me, it would have hurt. So I made certain not to startle it.

I would have loved to see that fox! Foxes are among my favorite animals. I've rarely seen one in Michigan--I don't know if it's because they are rare or because they are good at going unnoticed. But unless you're neighbor had chickens, I wouldn't worry about the fox *grin*

    Thanks for sharing these cute/funny stories. Sudhir would not do well in my area of Minnesota - we have an abundance of deer, fox, coyotes, wolves, an occasional moose and other wildlife that we encounter frequently.

I can't say that I have ever seen a sinister glint in the eyes of any deer I have encountered.

    I literally laughed till my eyes teared up! I'm sorry, Sudhir, but those nerves just crack me up in every story!!! I love that the deer had "sinister eyes"... that sounds like something my son would say. He's not afraid of animals, he just says things like that and has a thing about hating squirrels. I will say, though that during mating season the male deer can become aggressive and you should give them wide berth. Once at our Galena property I was working in the back where we abut common greenspace that is uncleared. I heard this snorting and thought it might be a wild boar for a second, (LOL... there are no wild boar in Illinois!) For the next few minutes a dominant buck was chasing 2 younger deer, snorting away, teaching them their place. Never seen deer act like that before or since. Don't tell Sudhir...he might never go outside again!

Humpty Dumpty went to the Mall

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Stairs are a bit tricky at times---and Marble or Granite ones more so.They're pretty highly polished in the various Hotels, Department Stores and Malls---their highly polished sheen adds to the grandeur of the place!!!These same Stairs can also be a highly polished downfall!!
Yesterday Sudhir and I went shopping at West Side---a big Departmental Store in South Mumbai---since Sudhir is a member he'd recieved a special coupon for September---which happens to be his Birthday month.According to this coupon we'd get a 20% Discount on all in-house buys---quite an attractive offer----so we went along to check out the Merchandise.However to check out all the Stuff---Clothes,Shoes,Purses and various Household Items and Furniture we first had to climb a short flight of just 5 Stairs.It was while I was climbing up that I fell---how I've no idea at all!!The first 3 Stairs I navigated successfully---the 4th Step was my undoing---and before I knew it I was kneeling on the Floor!!!My defense mechanism had in a reflex action thrust out my arms--so except jarring my shoulders a little and banging my left knee slightly there was no damage done---but the highlight of my fall was Sudhir's reaction!!!Everytime something happens to me he gets a huge Panic Attack---and since my Chemotherapy is constantly worried about me suffering from Osteoporosis!!!All this results in him turning totally,unreasonably irascible!!
Sudhir was walking a little ahead of me---and hearing the huge "THUMP" he turned back---to find me kneeling on the Floor!!Instead of picking me up and dusting me off---he launched into a Tirade about how I should look where I'm going etc.etc.---it was the helpful Staff who helped me up and dusted me off--while the Tirade continued.There were 2 old Parsi ladies walking with their Canes who witnessed the incident---and they were aghast at his reaction.One of them ventured to remonstrate with him---"Don't you think you should give her a little hug and see if she's okay?" she asked---to have him change direction and bark at her instead"She's my wife---and you've no idea what she persists in putting me through for the past 4 years"---and then turning back to me"You're sure nothing's broken???Just remember I'm 9 years older than you---you can't subject me to this mental torture all the time!!"
That is when I started laughing---the whole thing was so funny!!!Sudhir behaving like a Bear with a Bee in his Bonnet--the Staff hovering around solictously and the 2 irate Parsi old Ladies ready to do Battle on my behalf---all of it just had me in splits!!Everybody shut up and began staring at me as if I had totally lost it----leading the 2 old ladies to shake their heads in remonstration muttering"'Aa Dikri toh taddan mad chhey!!!"This means this Girl is totally mad---as they walked away!!

    When i do something clumsy i often react by laughing...like when I backed into Lloyd's car in the driveway and then couldn't figure out how to move, forward or back, to put distance between the cars rather than further the damage. I went to get Lloyd and was laughing, which just made him mad as he read it as a sign that I didn't take the expense of the mistake I'd made or my carelessness seriously! I figure, the damage is already done, the bill is already forthcoming, you may as well at least get some amusement for your money! The funniest part was when I got back in my now extricated car to continue driving my daughter's carpool, and one of my daughter's friends politely asked, "Mrs. K, how did you get your license?" (They were taking driver's ed at the time.) I guess poor Lloyd and Sudhir would have a great commiserating session about the torments their "totally crazy girls" put them through!!!! Glad SOMEONE was there to help you up!!! Lloyd explained to me at one point that when he is scared, it switches right into an angry tone, which I had to explain to our daughter. I guess men are taught from a young age that it's not manly to show that they are scared, and they have nothing else to do with their feelings than launch into a lecture!!!

One thing my mom always told me that when you fall, you should laugh before anyone does. But she does the opposite, if anyone else falls, she bursts out laughing, which can be weird if the other person doesnt take it well..

But yeah I can relate to all the falling I do. I have tripped and fallen over my pajama bottom a zillion times when I used to stay with roomies. i am a klutz:D

but seriously, i am glad you are ok. take care and hope u shopped a lot to make up for all that yelling. HAhahahaha
