In the present world it has become difficult to get alliances for boys since the girls are well educated and want an alliance matching their education and personality. In some cases the marriages happen very fast and in some cases it takes time. My dh's nieces daughter's marriage was on 6th March and she got a good match for her. Mehndi was on 3rd March which was organised by the girls. The girl's mama's daughter, periamma's daughter and she arranged for the mehndi and the professionals came home and put mehndi for everyone. The decoration of the stage was organised by the girl's brother and her mama's son and periamma's son. Photographer also was arranged by them. The stage was a little small and the girl's brother got the stage to be done bigger. It was nicely decorated and also they kept a Ganapati Idol having an umbrella from which water was falling down and lights were put up. The girl's mama's daughter and periamma's daughter helped her in packing her suitcase and saw that nothing was missing. During marriage when anything was required they made it available immediately. Packing of the sarees, dresses etc to be given to the relatives were done by the girls and boys in which their friends also helped them. Shifting the cardboard boxes from home to the hall also was done by them. Transport arrangement was also done by them. Till the marriage was over the youngsters were on their toes. I was glad to see the co-operation between the grandchildren of my sis in law. Their parens re lucky to have such smart children.
