Mallu Land

Thanks for all your wishes.
No, I did not get married "Just Like That" as some of you have asked. We have been waiting for this for almost 5 years. I did not want to jinx it by saying anything. So, thats the reason for the silence; and of course, the loads of work that had to be done.
We had only a close circle of friends for the wedding. People who know us well and could really share our happiness on the occasion. We did do away with a lot of rituals and had only the most essential ones.
He is a Mallu and I am TamBram. So, we had a TamBram wedding, but shortened to almost Mallu time. We had only the Kanyadhanam and Sapthapadhi.
And then we went to mallu land. It was awesome!!
There was a stream running right and behind his house.. and about 100 feet away, the paddy fields start and beyond that you can see the mountains. The approach to his place was like entering a differnt world. It was like a resort, and since it was raining almost all the time, the weather was perfect.
So, here are some snaps from kerala.



































These are some snaps taken by my husband. He is an amateur photographer.














































And on the way back, we met this beautiful baby.

Hi:

It seems as if you took a leaf from my own life. Me and wife (she a mallu) waited 4 years before getting married in the mallu way. :) Mallu land is a nice place indeed, but for their frequent powercuts/low voltage, and their infamous agitations.
Have a great life ahead
Cheers
TCD

Hi Sowmya,

We at blogworld would also love to share your happiness as much as any of your other friends. Where in Kerala is your hubby.

The pics are really beautiful. I was a bit shocked at seeing the last pic as the title above popped up a bit late in my computer thinking how could nature's clock be shortened in the Mallu's style.

Amateur photographer? Come on... you are way off. Those snaps are very good! Congrats again. Tambram, Mallu, Telugu, Punjabi, Marati, Kannada..does this really matter as much as the happiness of two individuals who decide to spend life together in harmony? Just my 1.5 cents! :)
