Strange Culture......

Last night I attended a engagement of my cousin sister to some unseen, unmet man.

The following is what I encountered at that MUSLIM Engagement.

I arrived rather early and found that the mean and women are segregated from each other by means of a wall consisting of a decorated bedsheet on bamboos. Well it is the unity of a man and a woman, so why are exactly are men and women kept away from eachother's sight??

Well whatever, my brother and me proceed and sat in the empty, open air, bedsheet room. We sat in plastic chair just staing at eachothers faces as not a soul in sight at the Male Camp.

To kill time I wander around and bump into my uncle. So I ask him to introduce me to the groom. Well he informs he isn't here and isn't going to come. The groom is NOT going to attend his OWN engagement. Whateva.....

Thats not all further into the conversation Im informed my cousin hasn't even met him once! She has just seen photographs of him! Only her family members have met him, interrogated him n whatever. It like a lottery system. You're just simply taking a chance into whom your going to marry. All this at the request of the groom's family who wish the two shall not meet who also called for the men and women in separate camps! Well isn't that the duty of a possesive father of a hot daughter??

A the union of a man and a woman, men and women are delibrately kept out of sight from eachother! The groom isn't allowed to attend his own engagement! Not only that, the bride and the groom will come face-to-face at the wedding, but from a distance. There I also a strong possibility that the bride and the grooms face might be covered with some midieval decorations.
Their honeymoon is the first time they meet. Well no turning back at that moment.....

Like wow! 2007 and this can still go on. I wonder why they didn't allow the Bride to meet the groom? How da hell does India have such a population after such customs???

Thats Muslim Culture for you.

Awesome Indie Music

OK now lets get to business!

Like I said a few days ago I was going to feature unknown awesome Indie artists so here goes:


I dont know a hea o tail bout' this dame but she she simply awesome on the drums. The whole deal with her is that although she okays the tabla she can compose music as well, which many of her percussionist contemporaries can't. She makes MUSIC not some random dabbling on the tabla.

Simply Brilliant. Check out the Norah Jones track in particular.

Bright Eyes

I heard about them from my friend and found them pretty good you know. She linked me to this site which had lyrics to their song which was exactly like the song I wrote once I had a breakup. But nevertheless it was SOOOO GOODD!! I was low after readin that coz I felt ripped off....welll u know in a way. But thesde guys have great potential too!

BTW, the songs name is something like "Its, Cool we can be friends!" ITS VERY VERY GOOD, check it.
