Ganesha Puja in Cabella: Part 2/4

Saturday Evening - Weddings

The unique weddings are now coming to an end with the 90! or so couples lining up to receive silver gifts. Many aspects of the marriages are completely refreshing. Firstly, the grooms arrived on horse drawn cart, back of a farm
tractor and other out of the world vehicles!

Then at the conclusion they read out wishes from 4 to 10 year old children of the new centrassi school. all were cute, genuine and somewhat mature coming from a young cohort of sahaja yogi children. A sampler from memory:

"Wish you many good childeran' not naughty".

"What is outside is not important, what's important is inside."

"Have a lovely wedding."

"Never be angry, always love each other."

The couples have been just instructed to start composing couplets and
qawwali singers from Romania are making their way to the stage. The
newly weds will have their first meal together as a couple.

The night is young.
