1. Karik Muripa / Panda Pani

Cutting vegetables for curry and erecting the marriage 'pandal' (stage)

One day before the wedding, members from the bride and groom's 'okka' (no, it’s not what you’re thinking) and villagers (where do we find these guys?) assemble for the 'karik muripa'. All the women gather together to cut vegetables in the main courtyard of the house (the women will offer to help but will really just sit around to drink and gossip as Mr Ravi caterer, of “wedding on the “falace” fame, will take over), helping the cooks prepare for the feasts that follow, while the men help to erect the 'pandal' (buggers, is that all they think about?)

I have an opinion and so should you! Leave your bouquets, brickbats and battle axes here, preferably in a language I can understand. If coyness gets the better of you, then email me (emailbasicallyblah@gmail.com).
