My Best Cousin's Wedding - Part 2

If you haven't read the first part of this series, go here.... NOW!

The last post created a lot of misconceptions. I am not getting married! I mean, not now. In the future maybe, definitely.

Do you know anyone who happens to look exactly like Brett Lee ? If you do, please inform me. Oh yeah, he has to be a Nair boy who sings pretty well (like Brett Lee) and who looks extremely sexy in formals (like Brett Lee). He should also know how to play Cricket quite well (like Brett Lee) and have a nice smile (like Brett Lee). Did I mention it would be nice if my future would-be looked, walked and talked exactly like Brett Lee? Hmmm....

Oh sorry, I am straying away from the 'Day 2' of my best cousin's wedding post series! Let's begin..

Day 2 - 29/05/2009 (Friday)

- Dhanya goes to salon. She's supposed to thread her bushy eyebrows and do a facial for the first time! Dhanya's mommy had told her that since all her aunties and even uncles (!) are doing facial prior to wedding, it's best that even Dhanya does all this crap. Our family follows the Hum saath saath hain motto in doing everything afterall. *Sigh*

- Threading finished, Dhanya waits to do facial. This lady next to Dhanya tells her she's having a headache from applying the cow dung coloured dye to her hair. Lady asks Dhanya if she has ever coloured her hair and Dhanya replies with a 'No' and Dhanya even mentions that she's going to do facial for the first time. Lady looks like she's going to faint (from the foul smelling dye or from Dhanya's beauty ignorance... Dhanya doesn't know).

- Facial starts. Beautician starts poking Dhanya's nose and cheeks with God-knows-what. Dhanya has this sudden urge to take this instrument from the beautician's hand and poking her on her face instead to make her realize how painful it is. But Dhanya resists.

- Facial ends. Dhanya still doesn't know why she did it.

- Dhanya gets back to her grandparent's place where everyone including Pri is there.

- Dakshina begins where Pri is supposed to give gifts to people who are elder to her.

- Dhanya is shocked when Pri's mom tells her to accept dakshina.

- Pri offers dakshina and falls on Dhanya's feet. Dhanya feels highly embarrassed by all this and wants to run away. But Dhanya resists.

- Cousin 2 and family lands up with 'the guy (from part 1)' to wish Pri.

- Guy refuses to look at Dhanya which leaves Dhanya highly amused.

- Guy turns back to leave and Dhanya for the first time notices a very large, very obvious patch of baldness at the back of the guy's head.

- Dhanya is reminded of the time when she wrote with lipstick on her uncle's bald patch when she was a kid. Dhanya feels like doing that again. But Dhanya resists.

- Dhanya's mom comes up to Dhanya and points (at the baldness). Dhanya nods an 'all knowing' nod.

- Later, Dhanya comes to know that the little bit of hair the guy had is actually transplanted.

- Dhanya's mom - 'God is with us, moleyyy (daughter in malayalam). Thank God that guy wasn't yet ready for marriage. He's not good at all!!!!'

- Dhanya is amused and hopes all this craziness in her family will never cease.

*End of day 2*

Coming up
: The Big Day - Pri's Wedding

- This post is not meant to hurt the sentiments of 'other' bald people.

    sympathy for u *sigh*
    u know what was the best part of post is..

    "But Dhanya resists""...
    hehe..nice one :D

  26. I read all three parts of this particular topic, and was wondering who this Dhanya was, and finally realized after 10 minutes that you've been referring to yourself in the third person all the while!! Never seen that before. At least not with this intensity!!!

    I was even gonna ask if Dhanya will take it personally if you talked publicly about bushy eyebrows!! Ha! I guess not!

    And there seems to be a definite F.R.I.E.N.D.S fixation...interesting!!!

    How you doin'???


Scribble away....!
