Weddings & Celebrations

Tag: Friends @ 11:44 am

It’s time for some celebrations!

My best two friends are getting married. To each other. :-)

It’s been a long journey from their friendship in school to the now of coming together and proclaiming their marriage. In between most days have been really good along with the few complementing bad ones too.

Now, as the time to begin spending the rest of the journey of their lives together draws close, I would like to raise my virtual toasting glass to wish them a happy, blissful lifetime of good cheer and health.

Here’s to you, Apurva & Romasha: May you have the best of times together – always.

In the end, I find it best to have a quote from Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider’s Northern Exposure:

Marriage is the union of disparate elements. Male and female. Yin and yang. Proton and electron. What are we talking about here? Nothing less than the very tension that binds the universe. You see, when we look at marriage, people, we’re are looking at creation itself. “I am the sky,” says the Hindu bridegroom to the bride. “You are the earth. We are sky and earth united…. You are my husband. You are my wife. My feet shall run because of you. My feet shall dance because of you. My heart shall beat because of you. My eyes see because of you. My mind thinks because of you and I shall love because of you.”

    Ooh. Nice. Very nice. I never thought of love / marriage that way.

    I never ended up seeing Shall we dance either. Is it really that good?

    That’s beautiful…. another awesome one is from Shall we dance..
    “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness”
