You are Invited!

Hello everyone – so good to see you here! I am terribly excited about the upcoming blogging challenge. As I mentioned in my previous Post, I signed up for the blogging challenge beginning next month. This is my first foray into the challenge, which has been running for the seven years now.

The challenge is to blog on every day of April (except Sundays) on any topic or a theme-based topic from A to Z. Taking the plunge, my initial reaction was to opt for a random write-as-you-go-approach but then a theme-based approach seemed more appealing. I juggled with several topics but then when I attended a great Indian wedding last week, every other topic faded to insignificance!

As per the rules, today is the A to Z Blogging Challenge -Theme Reveal day. So, hold your breaths – tantaraaaa –  here’s my theme for the 2016 A to Z Blogging Challenge – Indian weddings.

India is a huge country with myriad customs, rituals, traditions that stretch over days and vary not only from place to place but also family to family. And I have to confess, I have attended very few weddings. Actually mine was the only one I have sat through completely – though I did try to take notes on the last wedding.

I do hope that you will chip in with your variations, versions, comments, suggestions, and favorite customs. Mark the date on your calendars please – 1st of April 2016.

Nope it’s not an April Fool’s prank. Err well, you’ll never know for sure until you log in will you 😉

Now back to Rajani’s trials and tribulation as she journeys through her life – Chapter 46 and do check out the revised blog index entitled About this Blog.

As always, I look forward to hearing from you on anything and everything. Have a great day and a super week ahead.
