the big fat punjabi wedding an why i cudnt SUIT UP!

recently i got an invitation to attend the marriage/reception(franfly speakin i didnt even hav a look) of a senior of i m not in favour of marriage jus SUCKS(no apologies dere).but dis was a PUNJABI weddin that too DILLI expectation were so for those of u who havent been to ne punjabi weddin or havent read chetan bhagat's 2 states for that matter....punjabi shaadi's r very very LOUD.the focus is mainly on how much can u show off to your peers by doin everythin on a grander scale.the main aim is to proove how much dey can while women folks try to submerge demselves in as much amount of make up dey folks r busy drinkin an shoutin at top of dere voices(no1 cares to lisen so its not important neway).
so back to my story...i got a call from my senior to be ready in half an hour coz we will b late if we cant make it at 8(ya rite...didnt dey mention dey wr followin IST?) dere i was searchin my wardrobe for a SUIT!
yes i was lukin for a suit(i cud almost see barney sayin "SUIT UP!") i dont know why but in weddings suddenly suits hav replaced the kurta's in a very weird way..its lyk only groom is allowed to wear indian rest has to SUIT dere i was d odd 1 out in d weddin hall...

oh an did i mention we wr rite on time at 8.00 an guess wat ......even d ppl who organized d event didnt care to turn up that early...dey wr sure of dere peers punctuality(embarrasin HIGH 5)

so dere we wr almost d only ppl in weddin hall waitors lukin suspiciously at us(d bride's dad actually askd us to make sure we actually came for the wedding).so now we wr settled now the main motive.....WHERE IS D DRINK and CHICKAN...
we started lukin...mattar paneer...palak paneer...blah blah paneer...kashmiri blah blah...(GOD WHERE IS D NON VEG section?)....
an den gulab jamun....what?????...
did i miss something...i searched again...rubbed my eyes...IS DIS REAL DELHI WEDDING????
hav we come to d actual place??...checked everythin tried askin waiter who hesitated to talk to me.(DAMN U SUIT!)...told my senior..."sir sab veg hai aaj"..
now dissapointed we went to the thing which resembled an open bar(atleast in hindi muvis it did) guess wat were dey servin...JALJEERA!....GRRRRRR...
wat d hell...i came all d way for dis...
never mind our seniors decided if the groom's gonna come on tym we r gonna make dis tym work (we did *wink*)....we made SCENE on our den wen barat was usual stuff...BORIN..we even went to congratulate the married couple(YAWN)..
an finally 1st adventure in DILLI to cherish
