A Glass of Water
Weddings made me nostalgic and tearful. The atmosphere always had me wishing for one myself. Staying in Sydney meant I usually missed out on most of the pre-wedding festivities in the family. This time, however, as the groom’s cousin, I was fully present and privy to all the sweet little moments that made up the big day. Siddharth, or Sid anna as we called him, was coming tomorrow from Sydney. It was the typical arranged marriage setting — the bride and groom were introduced by a mutual relative, the two met over Zoom, had a few online dates, all while their parents organised everything back here in India.
