At the end of the day, we are all someone’s blushing bride

Sharing a picture of Katrina Kaif that I saw in a rickshah the other day.

We thought it was funny because she looks photoshopped into the dulhan get up. That too, she looks like a very realistic bride, as opposed to the stylised version of Bollywood…It almost looks like she could be the rickshah-wallah’s bride!

I’ve been reading Hindu marriage manuals recently and a lot of the rituals and vows seems to ask the bride to be calm, benevolent, patient, servient… Maybe I am reading into it too much but I thought this picture captured it well: Sheela tamed and shaped into the mould of Savitri. What do you think?
