My Best Friend's Wedding!

सावन का महीना, पवन करे शोर,
जीया रे झूमे ऐसे, जेसे वन मा नाचे मोर !!!!!!!!!

Last weekend i was in a paradise known as the City Beautiful, to attend one of the most beautiful events of my life....
My college times best buddy, Shailly's wedding.....!

It was so refreshing meeting college time buddies after 5 years, walking on the wide roads, passing by the markets, cinema halls, buildings that defined our 4 years of the college...

Most of my buddies were surprised to see the same smiling Pooja, absolutely no change in her behavior except the fact that she had shed so many pounds!!

Let me share a link first for my friends who wish to know more about Indian weddings:


The Himachal beauties had cast a magic spell everywhere, not just by their mesmerizing looks but also by their extremely hospitable attitude!

Seeing Shailly, it looked as if the Heavens had come down on earth to bless those auspicious moments...

It was heartening to visit a complete Indian wedding after almost an year, something that i had been longing for ever since i had left for Germany!

I looked so excited at all the ceremonies, the Jaymala and Agni-Phera ceremonies really touched my heart..

I will always remember those joyous moments i spent with dear Aunty, (Bride's mother); the moments that made me realize how special a daughter means to her mother.. How in her daughter's happiness she finds all the happiness of the heaven....!

Though i missed her Sangeet ceremony because of leave crunch at my end, i have written a song for those moments whose lyrics i want to share with everyone!

I am sure God will give me many chances to sing this song at many of my dear ones' weddings:

Banno re, Banno re, Pyari se Banno re,
Mummy ke Banno re, Papa ke Banno re!

Dadi ke banno re, Nani ke banno re,
Didi ke banno re, Bhaiya ke banno re!

Mausi ke banno re, chachu ke banno re,
Rishta hai atut yeh, Maa ka sapna sach hua banno re!

Tu hai Hamari re, Hum hai Tumhare re,
Teri rach gayee mehndi banno re, khanki chuddi banno re!

Jab aaye mere ghar, thee nanahi pari yeh banno re,
Ab jaayegi ghar se, dholi mein bethi sayani yeh banno re!

Sajh dhaj ke ghar se jayegi yeh banno re,
Sabse pyaar payegi meri bholi se banno re!

Piya ghar sajayegi ab yeh banno re,
Apne Papa ko bada yaad aayegi, pardesh ja rahi jo yeh banno re!

Mera mamta ke aanchal tujhe jab pukare yeh banno re,
Daudi chali aayegi yeh banno re!

Naye ghar mein naye rishte nibhayegi yeh banno re,
Apne Dil mein pyar ke deep hamesha jalayegi yeh banno re!

Banno re, Banno re,.. Ladho meri banno re!!!!!
