Photo Diary: Gujarat

There's a new epidemic in town!
It's called Marriage.

You are laughing? I have got more than three close friends....all getting married within a span of one week.
One of them is getting married in Agra. For which I have to travel with her and be out of town for 6 days. In which time another 2 friends are having their wedding. Which I'm not being able to attend. For which I'm getting emotionally blackmailed by all & sundry.

Now say!

At the end, I went for a college buddy's wedding today (and heard no end of it since I won't be able to attend his reception party on the 1st!); leaving for Agra on the 1st, enjoying my BFFs wedding for 5 days, coming back to town on the 6th afternoon; rushing to another childhood friend's wedding on the 6th evening (again hearing no end of it as she had invited me to be a part of all ceremonies from 5th); and trying to drop in at a work buddy's wedding sometime on the 6th evening itself! Phew!!! 
I should be certified an expert in running wedding marathons! 

The scariest part, though, is not the inundating number of wedding invitations flooding my desk right now. It's what to wear in all these back to back parties! Since, all thanks to Facebook & instant smartphone-clicked pictures, one (specially, one who's a part of the fashion industry) cannot, by any means, commit the heinous crime of repeating outfits at such occasions!!

So, as you can see, I'm facing a fashion block. Too less time. Nothing to wear. The story of all of our lives (I'm sure you agree girls!) *sigh*

Hence, I thought of skipping fashion for this post & sharing with you some snaps of my recent (well....October was, technically, just one month ago) family vacay to the vibrant state of Gujarat!

Hope you enjoy the pictures while I mull some more over what to wear for the next 10 days!!!

  1. Lovely pictures!! I love the way you write..I could almost picture the wedding outfit frenzy and all of that...I'm sure Howrah Bridge must be in demand too ..after all they are stylish, desirable pieces:-)

  2. Those are some lovely pictures, the third one (for some weird reason) reminded me of a scene from the film adaptation of "The City of Joy". Good luck with all the wedding season rush. The first line of your post made me think people were driving you crazy asking when you were planning to get married. :P

  3. I faced this around 5 years ago so can fully sympathize with ya gal!!

    wonderful pics of gujarat!!

  4. Beautiful photographs, Anupriya!! I feel like going some place new :-)

  5. Such lovely pictures. What pleasure browsing through them. Gujarat is indeed beautiful and now you make me want to go all the more. :)

    Happy wedding hopping!

  10. Oh my goodness, Anu, it sounds like you had a very busy start to December! I hope you're recovering now, although I imagine it will take a bit... I find just one wedding exhausting, never mind attending four in one week. But I guess that's how it goes when we're young :) I don't have so many weddings to attend but it seems all my friends get married far from home so I find myself travelling a lot to see them get married!

  11. amazing pictures, the vivid colours, beauty of India. Gypsy Traveller shot is my favourite
