Picture This!

Right at the outset we are sorry for being late in having our marriage pics up on the site. Apologies. Apologies. Apologies.

On the right you see the couple in all the gladiatorial-glory. All decked up for what would be a life full of fun and sacrifices!

On Sept 8 (the day of our marriage) the photo-ops were many and there were atleast 4-5 cameras and two video-cameras. That is if we do not include the Handycams brought in by NDTV, Aaj Tak and Headlines Today. As a result, there could be a few snaps where the smile is fake. But I can assure you, those lines on the my forehead are real.

Now for picture time. Each pic comes with an explanation….

The Moment: This pic was snapped a few seconds after I had tied the three knots. You can see Rekha’s father giving her hand to me. Notice that he is trying to supress his tears. The same is the case with Rekha, who is very attached to her father. All the while, I am happy and gay.

The Big Family: Now we are a big family (in this pic Rekha and I are with our parents)…just that we cannot talk to each other as yet. My parents need to learn Malayalam and her’s Tamil. Otherwise, communication is restricted to ‘Talayalam’. Little talk, little problems – a blessing in disguise?

Rekha’s Moment: A very happy mother and a concerned father. A relieved yet okie-dokie parents. Will my daughter be happy with this bugger, seems to ask Mr Chandrashekaran Nair – my father-in-law.

Rajan’s Moment: I am surprised. I am with my parents after marriage and am not smiling. What could be the reason? I wonder. Was I already planning out the honeymoon details?

My Sisters Under Spotlight: “That’s my Bhabhi and I will stand next to her”…there was a fight and Deepa being the elder of the two won. Sumathy got to stand next to her. All this even as my brother-in-law Murugan sneaks in beside me.

Special Saudi Spice: Sudhir chettan & Rema chechi are lawyers and here have forgotten their black coat. For a change…they are were in the witness box. The baby, who is upset with both NDTV & Aaj Tak for being mis-quoted, and hence refusing to face the camera, is Anupam.

From The Land of Pepper: Balan uncle & Lakshmi aunty are Sudhir chettan’s parents. Oh…you should never go to their house if you cannot eat one goat by yourself – that is how much love and food that they will give you.

Signing Off: This was the last picture we posed for at Sri Annapoorneshwari temple – the venue for our marriage. Of course, God willing.. (and our family photographer willing) you will see many more such snaps on this website.
