What do you know about magic? I gonna tell you – magic hides among ordinary small things. Be keen, listen gentle steps, and you will catch it on tail!
This is exactly what I felt on Shreeya and Sharad’s wedding – as a Katia in Wonderland! No, I have not seen white rabbit always running late, but I bet there was a Queen! And that day she gonna had her “dream of the life party” – Destination Wedding in Pushkar!! Her kingdom lies between Arawalli hills, her bedroom settled in white marble palace, encrusted with green garden and cyan water pool. All her women in bright colorful outfit as exotic birds gathered around her, but she was calm and confident about her beauty. It was celebration of colors, perfectly mixed with white palace and blue shiny sky. Have a look on another stunning day wedding in Rajasthan.
Just imagine for a moment all that stuff hundred years ago… does not it looks similar? Same cloth, same place, similar customs…So now you will see magic… as I do by clicking every step of small and seems to be unnecessary ceremonies…Because it is timeless.
Do you remember the sentence, someone sharp-minded once said: “Want to be good – interlocutor is a good listener”. So, we passed chain of tiny ceremonies (when you really can’t figure out a gap between one and another) and we found ourselves just right before Pujari, who calmly lit Agni. Rest of guests disappeared at food zone. And those who rounded Shreeya and Sharad and me, were nearly asleep..
But I had to tell story. Story of Love and Magic, and…You know, something what you will feel has no beginning and no end… Pujari narrated mantras, guys sank in deep thoughts, and I listened. And then… boom! – yellow smoke cloud arise from the flame and covered Shreeya. Oh wow! I clicked! She was half-covered in cloud and there only one arm of her groom, who holds her, was visible…It looks so mysterious and meaningful… On next picture he appeared before her as a fairy tale Jin, and I remembered beautiful story from “Paheli” movie..
On this wedding I felt exactly like when you just witnessed something more than personal, something what can become a History…
