A wise man once said to me things that I couldn’t comprehend but this simple villager from Orissa , once said to me….

“A marriage is like fresh paint to a barren wall it gives one’s life a whole new perspective. Once the paint fades out the wall may look shabby but one must not forget the foundation and love it was built with.”

These picture ‘s were taken on my Yatra/Travel to Berhampur, Orissa . The bride and grooms names are painted on the wall outside the house to depict a wedding celebration therein.

    Weddind is a wonderful bliss and an a complete new perspective we learn being with someone who we never knew before. I think that is the reason many people want to make their wedding a memorable event by celebrating it in the best way possible. Great to know how orrisians celebrate their weddings by writing the names of the bride and groom on their walls.
