The marriage functions then and now.Marriage functions are an integral part of our society. That is the time when the family persons, relatives and friends enjoy the occasion and present gifts to the newly wedded couple.
There has been a paradigm shift in the ways these functions are observed. In olden times the marriage function was an occasion when relatives and friends took responsibilities of the task and contributed in the function as per their capacity. That was a time when there were so many guests in a small house but they enjoyed the company and adjusted even with the limited facilities. It was really a fun time to assemble there for a few days and enjoy the function in its entirety.
Today, the situation has changed drastically and everything is done in a hired place where guests come for a small time and depart after the dinner. There is no thrill of the function which used to be there earlier for a weeks time.
Do you think in the same way? Is this difference perceptible to you?
