● She is my maternal aunt’s daughter.

● All our relatives and friends were invited.

● Actually the whole week before 15th was busy in the pre wedding celebrations like tilak, sangeet, mehandi and haldi.

● On the day of the wedding, the marriage palace was decorated like a bride. My cousin also looked beautiful in her sequin spangled lehanga.

● The baraat came at 5 p.m.

● High tea was served in which there were lots of cakes and snacks.

● Then there was the jai mala in which the bride and groom exchanged fresh flower garlands.

● Then we all danced and enjoyed to the beat of music.

● Then the priest set up a small fire and the remaining ceremony took place around the fire.

● Such celebrations are very common in my country.

Part 3 – Follow Up Questions

1. What is the relationship between money and happiness?

Nowadays people think that money and happiness are directly proportional. Those who have more money are generally considered to be happier than those who have less money. But I believe the definition of happiness changes from individual to individual

2. Do you think money is important?

Yes money is definitely important as we need it to fulfill our basic needs of food and shelter. Without money its very difficult to survive in today’s world.

3. Do most Indian people think that money is important?

Yes, most of the Indian people believe money is important, for the same reasons I mentioned before. (provide reasons from previous question)

4. What do you do to make yourself happy?

To make myself happy I like to do a lot of positive things and I also reward myself whenever I achieve something. Hanging out with friends or playing any sport also makes me feel happy but the thing out of which I get the maximum happiness is by helping others, so I go to the temples and help the needy

5. Why are children generally happier than adults?

Children are normally joyful as they have no stress of work and they have less awareness about the negative things in the world. They are at a learning stage so they like to enjoy whatever they are doing. They find unique and creative ways to enjoy themselves even with minimal things.
