Today, in the lawn in front of my department where Krishna Lunch is served everyday, there were two big 'pandhals'. Wondering what it could be, I went to have the lunch when I was told that, one of the volunteers of the HareKrishna Lunch program, Andy, was getting married to his wife, Merryll (yes, they are already married!!) according to Hindu traditional way.
There he was, in a Dhoti and kurta and she was dressed in a bright red saree. It was a short marriage, but with all the main customs covered. It seems Andy and Merryll wanted to marry Indian way and also the Hare Krishna people wanted to use this as a 'Demo' for an Indian marriage. So, there they were, in the middle of a working day, right in front of our department, getting married at about noon!! There were curious onlookers and well-wishers.. it was quite a big crowd.
Here are some fotos for you.. Have a good weekend!! :-)
