A Wedding Announcement...

December 1, 2008

I had been to a “Parichay” (“introduction”, or “getting to know”) walk organized by INTACH, Bangalore…this was at Russell Market, in the Ulsoor area.

I will be writing an account of it for Citizen Matters,and if they make the article too short, I will post a detailed account with lots of pictures here…but when, I don’t know, because I am off for two weeks in a little while, and no internet, possibly even mobile, access….

Anyway, while we were waiting for the walk to start, this caught my eye:


Like the Samsung tagline…Everyone’s Invited!

For the non-Indians: “chi.” is a shortening of Chiranjeevi (immortal) (it’s also the formal form of addressing a not-yet-grown-up-and=become-a-household young man) and “Sou” is short for “Sowbhagyavathi” or “Fortunate one”…in this instance , the “chiranjeevi” has been tacked on to the girl’s name too.

I do love going around my city; there’s always something nice to see!
