Break From The Past: The Wedding....

Please click here for Part 1
 
Indeed, how satisfying it is to finally get what you want in life, to find one's soul mate.
 We were so happy with our decision, everything worked out well for us .Our parents, though initially were not so happy, but eventually came around  and gave us their blessings.
  We decided to have a simple court marriage, followed by a reception at my place. You see, we had a big house with a huge garden, perfect for an informal reception that we had planned. Ours being a joint - family with all my brothers and their families, my uncles and aunts and their children and my grand parents ----we all lived in this huge house we called our home.
 All of them were excited about the marriage, everyone pitching in to make it a memorable event for both of us.

 We left for Kashmir for our honeymoon.It was a dream come true for me,  for I always wanted to visit Kashmir that too with the person I loved. Chandran knew about it, and had it all planned. So here we were two newly weds on our way to romantic Kashmir. We stayed in a beautiful, luxurious, absolutely romantic houseboat. Later we left for one of  those skiing resorts. Here I had good fun learning to ski from an instructor. The gently graded ski slopes were perfect for a beginner like me.
 Oh ! I forgot to mention,we had a wonderful time rowing over the Dal Lake. It was all so romantic, I can still remember the warmth of his body, as I snuggled so close to him, as we rowed on and on and on...... romance was in the air..
If you asked me what temples and mosques we visited,  well,  I would say, none. Neither the temple or mosque really interested us, for we were blissfully unaware of all the mandatory  sight- seeing. The beautiful mountains,  the breath taking gardens, the serene lakes,  brought us closer and closer to each other,  that if we were to die we would have died in each others' arms.  Kashmir and love are made for each other just like Chandran and me.
 In short,  we had a really wonderful trip: a trip that I would always cherish and treasure in my heart. We came back from Kashmir drenched in love.
 Our lives moved on ....as if it was not a reality ....but a dream, a dream filled with so much love, care and tenderness.
 Soon it was time for us to move to Australia.
