The Big Fat Indian Wedding

#Haiku Happenings #9: Reena’s latest #haibun for #dversepoets!

Reena Saxena

Indian weddings are bigger carnivals than any other festival
celebrated here. Décor and attire is lavish, not just elegant. Food and drink
overflows. Dance and music is OTT, and
can give a headache to peace-loving people. Videography and selfies override
the solemnity of the wedding ceremony. The ceremonies can last from two days to
a week.

People are capable of spending a lifetime of savings, or
even borrowing to meet expenses. Being an introvert, I am the odd one out – my
insanity is comfortable with a device and books, rather than socializing,
dancing and getting photographed.

The keywords are ‘letting go’.
