A beautiful TamBram-jewish blended wedding

A beautiful wedding

A Tam-Bram girl marries her orthodox Jewish boyfriend.

The hotel where they got married is a luxury Marriot (where many desi wedding takes place).

Of course, we had a white mare for the groom, and loud Bollywood-themed music for the barat. Lots of bright colored Saris, and Kurtas. Dancing on the street welcoming for the groom.

The Hindu wedding started at 9 AM and continued till 12:30 PM. We had 2 South Indian pujaris conducting the ceremonies. They went through 9 different steps including Malai matinal, Manglaiy Dhararam, etc, with detailed descriptions of each step in English. The sad part was they were asking this American man to say the Sanskrit mantras. Which probably did not make any sense for the majority of Desis in the audience. The audience squirmed and giggled at the difficulty this poor kid was having, knowing fully well that we too would have struggled.



In the evening a Jewish wedding is performed by a Jewish women friend of the family. The ceremony lasted for 30 minutes. Again, they repeated chanting in Hebrew and forcing the couple to repeat them. Why do we do that? Then, the boy and girl gave beautiful and hilarious speeches.
 
There is an agenda. It towers above anything else. There seems to be still a lot of pending work on them by nature. But who knows the workings and mind of nature? The smirk on their face says they do. wait a minute.. is it a smirk or some stupid expression? Well said Krishnan though a little bit graphic!

Can we proud of this? Mostly girls from Brahmin community enter into wedlock of different faiths. Is it a ploy or happens naturally? Does this happen in other religions?

The need of the hour is the community should introspect seriously the present state of affairs.
 
Nothing wrong per se in marrying into other groups. But is it planned and executed? Then it needs to be opposed if the motives are not good.

Chandruji,
I will ignore your usual myopic rant.

Interfaith marriages indeed bring about a unique set of challenges and opportunities, particularly regarding religious beliefs and practices within the family unit. The decision on how to raise children in terms of religion can be a significant point of discussion and negotiation for interfaith couples. Some couples choose to expose their children to both religions, allowing them to explore and choose their own path as they grow older. Others may decide to raise their children in one specific faith while still respecting and acknowledging the beliefs of the other partner.

Open communication, mutual respect, and a willingness to compromise are crucial in navigating these complexities. Couples may also seek guidance from religious leaders, family members, or support groups specializing in interfaith relationships to find solutions that are in the best interest of both partners and their children.

It's also important to recognize that interfaith marriages can enrich the cultural and spiritual diversity within families and contribute to greater understanding and tolerance between different religious communities. However, it's essential to approach these unions with sensitivity and a willingness to address potential conflicts or differences that may arise.

But you do not want diversity. You do not even want diversity between Tamil Brahmins. If I remember correctly you were against Iyer- Iyangar marriage. You were against Brahmins marrying outside the subcastes. So I will not reply to your post.
