When in Mangalore...

May saw us in Mangalore !

There was a wedding to attend and of course the added benefits of having wonderful beaches around :)

The wedding I shall deal with in the learnings section of this post, but first here is a glimpse of Kaup beach (for reasons as yet unknown, Kaup is pronounced Kapu :|)








Learnings from the trip/attending a Mangalorean christian wedding

Learning #1: When given a glass of wine, do NOT drink it up immediately !, wait till you see at the very least 200 other people drink. Lest you down your glass of wine and then realise you were supposed to hold on to it for 30 minutes and wait for the bride and the groom to sip their wine first.



Learning #2: When some one over the microphone asks the crowd to stand up and bless the couple, do NOT stand up and raise your right hand in Heil Hitler style just because everyone around you is doing the same. Lest you realize that everyone around you is at least 40 years old and you need to -at the very minimum - be elder to the couple in order to bless them.
