After a looooong time of almost exactly an year, we got to attend a family function today. It was my nephew’s engagement.
Due to the pandemic, only the immediate family – in India, ‘immediate family’ includes all brothers and sisters of the bride and groom and their families – were in attendance. In all, it was a gathering of 50-60 people. The function was held in a hall that could easily accommodate 200 in normal times, so that social distancing could be maintained to some extent.
We all went suitably masked and sanitized, but what with all the delicious snacks being served and photos being taken, the masks came off pretty early. We did keep slipping on the masks in between, but it was not easy.
Indian weddings, or engagements, don’t really lend themselves to social distancing, however hard you try.
I just fervently hope all of us stay fine and healthy. And here’s to the happy couple:
