Wedding Crashing

Written by

Bwog is all about faux matrimonies, especially ones that take place in the sandbox, but Low will certainly do. This year’s Hangama celebration, the mock Pakistani wedding hosted by Columbia’s Organization of Pakistani Students and NYU’s Pakistani Students Association, was sure to please. The groom from NYU sweeping in on horseback to meet his beautiful Columbian bride, Amirah Sequeira, CC’ 12, alongside the many other traditional wedding rituals (cake and dancing were present) provided more than enough excitement to fill a Sunday afternoon. There wasn’t as much free food as we would have hoped, but as one attendee remarked, you had to “give it up for the horse!”

    WAIT WTF IS THE POINT OF THIS?! Like it's FAKE so fake emotions, fake wedding ceremy, fake interest... don't get it peeps.

  6. breathe, son  

    the point? cultural exchange, community building and dare I say it.. fun?

    Most weddings aren't in totality a celebration of love. they're about pomp, show, enjoyment and community--especially if you're Pakistani/Indian.

    Now, this isn't the most intellectually heavy event you'll go to, but if you take that stick out of your butt enough to relax a little, you'll realize that not everything (esp cultural events) has to have strong intellectual grounding. Also, there was nothing fake about the excitement in the air and sense of community.

    To the good folk of the OPS: you guys did a great job. Keep it up, dudez :)
