In case you’re wondering what all the colorful commotion on Low Plaza is, it’s Hangama 2011, a mock Pakistani wedding held by Columbia’s Organization of Pakistani Students and NYU’s Pakistani Students Association. Held on Low Plaza, the mock wedding is between a Columbia bride and an NYU groom who arrives to meet her on horseback! We hear that everyone wears their finest South Asian attire, dances to sweet tunes, and has an awesome time. They’ve even got a halal cart! Screw this weather—y’all should check it out.
