first was namratas easy beautiful party at madh. the cottage this time was , i think, the nicest of the many we have gone to. it was raining like hell and the breeze was lovely. we sat in the verandah or danced away in the large room inside that became our dancefloor. we got home late and decided to crash at avon and woke up late last sunday.
the second was the huge celebrity wedding for whose reception mukul, mukuls parents and me drove to the grand maratha sheraton yesterday. when we got there the flower decorations were still being hung and we were twenty minutes late. it seemed more like a film set than a reception as cameramen, lights and other equipment jostled for prime position pushing all the guests into uncomfortable corners and on the too few seats for the number of people. the couple was running late and after watching a few celebrities big and small we decided to leave after two hours of waiting. mukuls parents were getting tired and we had no idea how long the event would take.
