Christina and I got married exactly 19 years ago and it still feels like yesterday. We did everything on the same day: a quickÂ saffran in the morning with the close family, a Hindu wedding in the afternoon and an occidental reception afterwards.
The interesting part was that the Hindu wedding was not only Indian. In fact, in addition to a pandit, we also have a Catholic priest and they both took turns. At the end, we did the Hindu wedding sacrament (the seven steps) which the Catholic church recognised as a Catholic wedding sacrament. In other words, Christina and I did aÂ Hindu and a Catholic weddingÂ at the same time.
After the wedding, we had a great reception which is still quite vivid in our minds. We danced, ate and drank until late at night.Â The next day, we took a flight to Rodrigues for our honeymoon.
19 years later,Â things are pretty much the same. Christina and I now have two big kids, Anya and Kyan, and the four of us are, pretty much, always having fun. In fact, we are well-known among our circle of friends and relatives are formidableÂ partygoers. For us, singing (the sÃ©ga) and dancing (everything!) are fundamental parts of our lives.
And, to be honest with you all, I think that we’ll always keep this spirit and life philosophy.
