If you’ve ever attended an Indian wedding, or atleast seen one in a movie, then you know why ‘big’ and ‘fat’ describe the entire affair perfectly. Amidst traditions set in stone and food from every possible corner of the world, each wedding aims to be more extravagant (and costlier) than the rest.

Reader, writer, pizza lover and blogger: Sunakshi is all of these things. She believes language is the best thing invented by man and has a passionate new-word-learning fetish. Even though she is forever in a dilemma between weight loss and food love, her love for books surpasses all other addictions.
