So today I’d worn a saree. Almost everyone who saw me in the function complimented me. It felt so nice (obviously). It was also such a confidence booster as I’ve had body image issue for quite some time now (nothing major, just a slight dissatisfaction with how I look sometimes).
I met everyone, talked and laughed and really had a gala time.
What was the event? It was a function conducted for my nana and nani’s (grandparents’) 50th marriage anniversary! Yes! 50 years! We conducted a Ganahoma (seeked blessings of Lord Ganesha) and then there was a sort of garland exchange thing signifying remarriage to each other. Remarriage. To each other. It was so cool.
But cooler still, was my nana’s toast. Something you should know before reading the toast: He’s a mathematical genius and has great love for it.
“In calculas, we integrate zero to infinity,
My wife Usha Desai is a beauty.”
Hahah. I’m smiling even while writing this. Okay, it may not sound that cute and now, but you should have been there, to see just how “awwww” – worthy it was. He’s 85 years old. For him to say something like that, in front of everyone, with that wavering voice was just plain cute.
Which brings me to the next fact: I love my nana nani. Completely adore them.
Also, I wore a messy bun. It looked quite elegant with the saree.
And everyone complimented the colour of the saree.
Aaand that’s that. Did you like these random facts? Or were they just too random for your taste?
