An Indian Wedding in the Stadium
The day is 6th of June 2016. We are in a huge indoor stadium of NSCI, Mumbai (Popular for kabbadi and other national and international level indoor sports). The varmala (exchange of garlands) is about to begin. There is a huge flute that will be suspended in the air. This will be the platform on which this exchange will happen. Bride is nervous. Groom is adventurous. Bride has just went with her family to her room, just to relax before this exchange. We also follow her, with a little hope to convince her for portraits of her and the family. She silently sits at a corner of the room with her mom. We can't ask them for portraits as the other ladies of the family come inside the room to conduct some rituals.
Cut to her home, where she is looking at her mom, as if she is says, " Mom, i love you and i am very sad right now ". Today is the last day of her for staying with the family.
