When traditions conflict modern outlook

Just few days to go for my cousin's wedding, iam a nervous wreck. First, i will be asked to wear dothi which i have never worn all my life. I feel very insecure with the traditional outfit. Just when iam getting accustomed to what i have to go through, there come another shocker. The Bridegroom is supposed to put a ring on my fingers!!! Isint is what people do in gay marriages?? I hoping none of the bridegroom's friends from US will attend the wedding.

I kind of disagree with this... I really dunno the reason y we always tend to compare our tradition with others. This mentality is only within us n i guess no one in any part of world wil do this...

There is other way to look at it right...y does the tradition of respecting a brother being used by them for other kinda relationship!! so its just our outlook, we need to stand for our culture rather than comparing with others....

just an opinion dude... ;)

true!! i know its our tradition and there is nothing wrong with that, but now that we live in the multicultural environment, its a tendency to relate everything around you to a culture you choose to follow. In my case, iam not very keen on a grand wedding, but more of a small group of close friends and family. That is something not everyone will agree, but then its me. So it looks a bit awkward when faced with situation you dont want to be on....
