Apart from these outdoor activities, we have been enjoying movies indoors and doing some elaborate cooking at home together including Adai, Hirekai chutney, Rajma based subji which I invented in Germany with thepla, gothuma ravai upma, and more recently, divine tasting Akki Roti.
Today I took the drivers’ written test and passed with flying colours. I got all answers correct! I studied hard for the last couple of days although I was preparing using videos even sometime last week. I made it through ~100 pages of rules!
I’ve never seen my dad cry before! My grandmas, my aunts, grandad, and my mum too. I didn’t realise how much I and my getting married meant to them. It’s not a casual, nice celebration, it’s of big grand proportions of big grand and deep meaning. This overwhelmed me and I started crying too but the aachaar (pandit who does the ceremony) as well as some elders told me not to cry so I tried hard to hold it in.
