Akanksha Sureka

Weddings are mega events for Marwari families, when all the stops are pulled out to give the occasion the lavishness and grandeur that is in keeping with Marwari tradition and, of course, upholds family prestige. But the question that sometimes arises is could the enormous sums spent in the process have been better utilised, especially in view of a gradual erosion of old values and traditions among new generation Marwaris? Or should they be left unchanged, keeping in mind the unparalleled fun, fiesta and opportunity for family reunion that the occasion provides? MARWAR talks to eminent members of the community to find out how they feel about the big, fat Marwari wedding.
