Desi Weddings part 3

The last two posts were really just preamble to what i originally meant to write about - what i've been reading lately. As serendipity would have it, in the days leading up to the big wedding in Toronto i was reading a book that was also centered around a south Indian muslim wedding, Madras on Rainy Days by Samina Ali. It was kind of like reading a refresher course on muslim weddings, arranged marriages, growing up caught between two clutures before actually meeting my friend who was going thrugh exactly that. The book itself is a little on the light side (good airplane reading), but definately entertaining. The one disappointment was that it was set mostly in Hydrabad, rather than Madras as the title leads you to believe.

The second thing i have been reading is BridalBeer, and i cannot recommend this blog highly enough! I am captivated by the writing style and the story - yes it is a blog that is more than just self gratiating mindless reflection! It is written by a twenty something, America returned woman living in Calcutta, awaiting her immanent marriage. It is truly wonderful, even the mavens at Sepia Mutiny give her two thumbs up.
