Red for Passion

and I would not have it. Apparently, Jaanavasam is not in vogue any more. While I have seen many handsome young men being paraded in a topless, red convertible, and goes to meet the bride, I will have to walk to meet my bride! Please hold while I sob inconsolably in front of my deity.

Jaanavasam has always been a point of pride for the Tam community, and shows our technological advancement, compared to stone age north, where they bring the groom on horseback. gah!

My dad had it, and I really believe him when he claims the car in the black&white photo is actually red. But it has always bothered me that he was not smiling in that photo. If my parents-in-law, take me in a slow moving vehicle to marry me their hopefully pretty daughter, why would I not smile? I know would not be able to resist being happy, especially with that flower thing that they will make me hold.

How degrading! damn!

Isn't the baraat more cool (read fairytalish ! )than the janavasam with the prince charming riding on the horse to meet the pretty girl ;-)

Am surprised you think the other way !
