    Feb 14th 2016: Home Run

    After a tiresome and awesome day, here comes the Marriage day and Valentine’s Day together. Friends think my friend is lucky to get married on THE FEB 14TH. I don't believe it, I believe he is lucky to get married to a girl who reciprocates and resonates with him. That's what is important to any relationship and becomes critical for a marriage to stand tall because it is supposed to go on for rest of your life. Let's get out of the philosophical tune

    The marriage muhurath is at 1045AM. This muhurath is set to place 'Jeelakarra Bellam' (Jeera + Jaggery) on each person's head by the other... This is part of Andhra tradition... This is why I love marriages, you get to see so many tradition in each kind, the true 'Unity in Diversity' can be seen here... As far as my travel plan is concerned, I decided I will start from Kurnool to Hyderabad (240kms) at 1PM because I am going to meet my school friends in the evening at Hyd... (tight schedule iam running in) I am staying in my hotel alone, and I asked my friends to wake me up at 8AM so that I can make it on time... As promised they did, and I was ready by 930AM with no packing done.

    MOM (Minutes of Marriage) :P

    10:00AM – My friend is the Bridegroom here and he is on the mandap reciting some mantras for the well being of his and her fianc's future.
    10:15AM - Bride is brought to mandap. Bride and Bridegroom are sitting opposite to each other, but can't see each other because of a white cloth (Vastra) in the middle. I love this part. The thrill that you have your better half infront of you but can't see him/her only feel him/her.
    10:30AM - Bride's father washes the legs of groom. This is done, as part of tradition bride's father saying "she is all yours please take care of her"
    10:45AM - Jeera+Jaggery paste is placed on the heads by each other without removing the cloth. This is to say that "You both are connected before even you see each other" At this time the cosmic energies of each person flows through the other bringing the mental resonance. And cloth in middle is removed, this is where they see each other with a naughty smile on their lips and a happy smile in the eyes. We as friends, shout the hardest at this time celebrating this.
    11:00AM – While bride and groom, oops, now I should address them as husband and wife, are holding hands in the same way, people wish and bless them with Akshintalu (yellow rice). There was huge crowd and line which is going on to bless them both. The line after bless is going directly to Food hall. This is another important feature of the marriages, sumptuous lunches
    11:15AM - Bride ties the knot (Thali). This is the auspicious and grand moment shown in movies…
    All the youngsters or unmarried here would be thinking of another important chapter when talked about marriages… That is GIRLSSSS!!!! Yup there were beautiful girls all around us. Friends/relatives/cousins etc Who cares where they are from… For few girls, this marriage is prequel for their marriage For few girls, this marriage is an occasion to get 100dps for the next 50days For few, this will be a chance to see how beautiful they are, by counting the boys looking at them.

    11:30AM – Games start. Game1: Thalambralu. This is when both of them pour down yellow rice, thermocol, and lastly pearls This is play time for both of them. This is when they get competitive yet they want the other person to win.
    Game 2: Find the ring. Here in a big plate of milk, a gold ring is dropped and there to find it first by each of them. Played three times and my friend lost the series by 1-2 but won her heart definitely.
    Game3: Arundathi star. By this Husband should show Arundathi star to the wife. This is because Arundathi was a great wife being loyal and lovable towards her husband in atmost tough conditions (Wikipedia will give you details). They don’t see any star in the broadlight, but pandit just asks them to point out in the right direction in the sky.

    These games are played because they start to build a rapport between the husband and wife. This used to serve the purpose great in olden days, as bride and groom might have hardly known each other. In present days, most of the times, the rapport is already built and these games add fun to their bond and make great pictures

    12:00PM - I wished and blessed both of them, had some pictures and then left to Food hall to get going for my trip.
    12:45PM - The lunch was damn good and I was super sleepy after such lunch. I was at the room by then. My friends stayed back with me, so then they can send me off till highway NH7. I started from room by 1:10PM. By 130PM I took off from my friend’s home to NH7.

    The roads were straight as arrow and very less traffic. I was soon touching 110kmph. This is the speed I was doing mostly during my 2k run. I was riding with small targets like 40kms in 30 minutes. I did my 95kms in next 1 hour and 120kms in 1hr 15mins. This was HOME RUN and SPEED RUN for me. After 120kms I stopped under a tree to sip some water and call my mom to inform her that I will be home soon. She was surprised I already reached half distance by 2:30PM and was worried that I am riding fast. I assured her I will be safe and after 15mins of break I started again. Speed run again till Timmapur. I was at Timmapur by 3:30PM. And there was 50kms left to my home and iam out of NH7 by now. I cant take Nehru Outer Ring Road (ORR) as two wheelers are not allowed. There is no service lane connectivity here so I had to go through city most of the time. By this time I am feeling sleepy and felt like sleeping at my nearest friend’s home But I am already missing home and my sleeping sofa. So I rode hard and I reached home by 4:15PM with all the gear and bags.

    I am visiting my home for the first time on my bike. My family hadnt had a look at my bike yet in person. This was a proud moment for me. Yes my mom knows how much I love bikes but was already against me buying a big/costly one because of the obvious worries. I can’t blame her for loving me too much.

    Note: Apologies if I described something wrong or in an appropriate way about the marriage traditions. If I were to write a blog in Telugu, I will be the best person to talk about traditions. The essence is lost in translation to my best English.

    I will upload the pictures for this chapter as a separate post.

    No matter how hard you try, there will always be something 'lost in translation'! So, that doesn't matter.
    Superb narration.
