The Big Fat Indian Wedding

The Indian terminology for relatives is more confusing than quantum physics because you don't get away with aunt, uncle, grandparents and grand aunts and uncles and cousins. You have mamu, mami, chachu, chachi, tayaji, taiji, massi, fufu and whatnot and these barely 5% of the relatives maybe even less.  But the fact that  the terminology also differs from family to family and religion to religion is super difficult to grasp unless you've been brought up in India. And a wedding is the place where each and every single relative is present and right now I haven't started on the honary brothers, sisters and every other honary relative......yet. If you're kid whose parents have their own share of male and female cousins you see a different wedding every time. You see the weddings on mom's side of the family and on dad's side of the family you see the wedding as the brides family or as the grooms family. These different sides have their own crazy customs which are super fun to execute. If I started describing an Indian wedding it would take me a week of constant entries. And hence all this for now and maybe another entry later. 

P.S. Guess where I wrote this entry?......That's right at a .....WEDDING

Land of Swagger

{ Warning!!! This is another lighthearted post and does not promote or discriminate against any belief. Guys I'm sorry but I'll skip this and peace out } 

The world has 133+ countries, and one of them is India. The country India has 29 states and one of them is Punjab , THE LAND OF SWAGGER. This is one thing you don't argue with 'cause you know when Shakespeare secretly came to Punjab in the 1600's , he saw the Punjabi's and went 'Man dis is style. These people got their walk , talk , the handsome locks and the moves all figured out and there is only one word that can describe it and that word is .....SWAGGER'. 

Like only a Punjabi can wear traditional suit along with aviators and still look like the coolest person ever. 

Punjabi's are known for their temper and that is.........completely TRUE. Like if you ask true Indians what a fight between or with Punjabis is like, they'll just look at you with a deadpan and pray for you to never be stuck in a situation like that. And that's because it doesn't matter if the Punjabi loses or wins because everyone knows that no matter how long it takes for them to strike back, they will strike back and when they do their opponent(s) better watch their back. 

And it the same energy of their that makes them the life of the party. They are ready to shake a leg on a song they heard the first time or even do the bhangra on the noise of a generator's motor. 

So I guess what I'm saying is that they are great at having fun and getting crazy and that's why I guess Punjabis are sorta born with SWAGGER.
