ROLE REVERSAL

It was a typical Indian wedding ,with all the Vedic chants and other hordes of such rituals.At last,came the time when the bride had to bid farewell to her parents and kin to enter another household. Its usual for the bride to cry on such occassions.So began the "Great Crying Competition". The bride,her mother,her sisters and almost all women present in the vicinity.Just imagine 50 or more women crying.. The men grew quite emotional too.Some oldies joined the troupe too.The hullaboo reached its peak. Just then,the groom,who was supposed to leave gallantly,asked for a kerchief.Maybe to wipe sweat,someone suggested. But all of a sudden,the "bechara"(meaning poor) groom started crying like babies,err the bride.Before you think of anything else,let me tell you,
he became too emotional and so....
Well,the bride stopped crying after that and there was very little "rona-dhona" after that. So while the bride was leaving her parents' home,she was almost smiling.After she left,all the guests present there had a hearty laugh.
Don't ask me what did the "Dulha" do...
P.S:Its a real incident that happened in my family in 1980s.Since then,it has become a family joke.
Keep smiling !
