I Hate Wedding Ceremonies!
Why do i hate wedding ceremonies so much? (Pakistani wedding ceremonies, specifically.)
Because they are a nauseating display of the hypocrisies and superficialities of our society; because they are a finerly orchestrated drama of money and social politics; because they are a means to show-off how much wealth one has; because the ceremony is more about the family and relatives of the couple than about the bride and the groom; because everyone pretends to be happy; because people are more concerned about making the video of the function than about the wedding itself; because the aunties are always on a rishta-hunt; because people compete for food more ferociously than even predicted by Darwinian selective forces; because it is a flagrant waste of money and resources on an event which is supposed to be simple and beautiful but has been mutated into a hideous social monster.
And because the bride almost always looks ugly!! God, why do they even need to plaster their faces with such thick layers of make-up? I can't imagine why on earth brides spend thousands of Rupees in beauty saloons for bridal make-up only to look so ugly!
