65/365 The Groom Arrives (New Delhi, India)

  65/365 –  The Groom Arrives

Early this afternoon as I was getting dressed to go to the gym I heard loud music and drumming-I immediately thought, there must be a wedding. I looked out of my top floor window to see a groom, on a horse, waiting to be brought into the hotel and to the wedding  mandap to await the arrival of his bride. 

I love that in India, a man, decked out in heavily embroidered clothes, sitting on a decorated horse and surrounded by dancing friends and family is not a novelty, but rather a rite of passage.  People aren’t bothered that traffic is blocked or that the music is loud. 

It’s the celebration and that’s really all that matters.
