Day 2 of Dipa & Abhi’s wedding weekend began with a beautiful ceremony called Grahshanti. As I understood it, it’s a blessing for the planets in our solar system to align and help Dipa & Abhi have a wonderful life. The symbolism was beautiful and I thought it was so interesting that it was all based on the groom and his family, a change from the bride being the center of attention! The morning ended with Abhi being smeared with turmeric paste by his relatives, to help him be beautiful for his bride! That evening was the Garba & Raas party. Both are circular dances, one around a lamp, and the other with sticks, which was so fun! I got pulled into the Raas to join in, I have to say, I did pretty well!
