Maya's Wedding

Arun invited me in early April to his sister Maya's wedding in Delhi. Here the couple is seen leaving the ceremony and showered in rose petals. Maya's husband's family is Sikh and so the ceremony was a traditional Sikh wedding. The weekend's food and festivities were delicious.

Inside a Sikh temple or gurdwara, we all had to cover our heads. During the ceremony, the couple circled around the man and the holy book in the middle several times.

These bearded men sang or chanted and played tabla.

Outside the wedding a transvestite/eunuch knocked on the car window for money.
