next year in marienbad

There’s a certain L’Année dernière à Marienbad feeling to a traditional Hindu wedding. This picture pretty much captures that. Up on the stage, the bride and groom are deep into the ritual, the videographer is illuminating things, people are sitting and watching, walking around, and having conversations. The band doesn’t seem to be playing. My memory has been jogged by the little dixie cups on the floor that we had just had a nice fruit juice shortly before I snapped this.

[Addendum: another shot from earlier in the wedding from the stage, behind the bride and her father, looking out into the wedding hall seating area.]

Much better, thank you.

Do you have a traditional Hindu Dutch oven recipe?

I'll ask some of the non-veg Indian programmers at work if they know what a Dutch oven is.

Hmmmm, it's not a meat only thing. You can use it for squash and all kinds of wonderful vegetarian or vegan dishes.
