ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Big Indian Wedding presents the larger-than-life, sometimes outlandish, generally madding, and always high-octane world of Indian marriage ceremonies!
Dip in to discover of the zany, over-the-top, and thus far undisclosed stories associated with the well-heeled Indian’s courtship and nuptial dance. From inebriated first dates over bottles of Dom Pérignon; to inspired proposals in exotic locations; to the entrance of the big-ticket wedding planner—to, finally, the giant wedding itself, preluded by shopping sprees, bachelorettes, sangeets and mehndis, and culminating in the mother of them all, the ‘saat phere’—this book is the ultimate compendium to the Indian marriage tamasha.
Written by someone who has keenly observed and enthusiastically participated in weddings—and has almost been roped into one herself—and peppered with witty observations, merry quizzes, and a whacky proposal manual (Bollywood-style), this book is a satirical account of the excesses of modern-day Indian weddings, and a sobering comment on the simplicity of the past.
