RASAM – BAAT PAKKI HAI
A lot of people wait for this moment their entire life. But when the moment of their baat pakki wali rasam arrives they don’t know what the hell is happening. So here we are gonna guide you of what what you will face the day you are booked for someone.
1 – DRESS
Guy will be wearing shalwar kamiz with waist coat and girl will be wearing shalwar kamiz or something like that. But her dress will be really sparkly and heavy. So in comparison the soon to be groom looks like some sort of a distant relative who is here to attend the party.
2 – SADQAY JAWAN
A number of aunties will gather around you with a gesture of taking your nazar. They are so expert in that nazar thing that you will hear cracking bones of their hands
3 – MITHAI
Nobody cares if you are on diet or a diabetic. Everyone will try to act funny and will force gulab jamun in your mouth. No matter how much you resist but you will end up eating gulab jamuns equal to the number of family members of the opposite family. Oh yes a few nadeeday family members will also eat mithai after feeding you.
4 – HAAR
Every relative will get u a red rose haar while feeding you the mitahi. Girls will also get gajray and motia bangles. After 5-6 minutes there won’t be a difference between you and any mazaar. You will feel like everyone around you is devotee here to offer a chaadar on your shrine.
5 – PHOTOS
You will get a hundred photos of you with mouth wide open and gulab jamuns stuffed inside it. You have to spend quality time later after rasam in filtering the photos and deleting the useless ones.
6 – LIFAFAY
Lifafay are the best thing to happen that day. Each person feeding you with mithai will leave a lifafa in your hand which you have to accept with a SALAM. The one sitting always wonder whats inside the lifafa till he/she is alone to open it. Keep in mind that lifafa needs to stay with you or you will never get it back if you give it to your mom.
7 – FOOD
Food is the second best thing of that day. Biryani is an essential item of such events and you can in the end enjoy the food in full protocol.
My friend once said
“Pakistani mard ko zindagi mein sirf is waqt izzat milti hai jab woh dulha hota hai. Uske baad chahy woh CEO ban jaye koi farq nahi parta.”
Same way you will get a lot of protocol this day. Everyone from your in-laws will be serving food and cold drinks. Your relatives will be surrounding you like bodyguards. Enjoy time till it lasts. Maybe the rest of the life is like Captain Safdar. . . Who Knows. . .
