Staying Up For A While and Photos From Wedding Ceremony

Hey kind people! 
Hope enjoying the each moment in hands by the grace of your creator!

Sitting in the room above I mean upper story I am trying to pass my hours here in some things that have become my regular hobbies throughout the years. Colour men are working in all rooms now except veranda so I moved  up here to spend my day. Needless to say that moving closer to sky makes me happier  :)
Vastness of sky is edged by colony houses spread so far. On one hand dates garden that go till my eyesight can travel. 
I do my meditation and recitation  in broad roof yard here .After lunch I take little nap (20 mins) and then read book or blogs for two hours.  It is hard to sit inside after 4:30 so after making evening tea I get out of room and take my tea in yard that seems transformed when sun is set away. Sipping tea while bearing the soothing breeze on face and eyes stuck in the sky is divine and spiritual experience indeed! 
See how our upper yard look after many layers of cement ,pebble, clay and marble at the last.
Hubby made every possible precaution to avoid roof trembling again  .let's see if it works 

Here I place chairs for recitation ,in  one and a half hour shad moves to the wall and i get up after pray.divine sense of closeness to my maker delivers absolute peace of mind meanwhile! 







      Hubby is wise that despite all things putting       here and there in hurry while shifting from            below he could remember to place family          pictures front of my resting place so I must not feel alone up here:)  and it worked so well 

Sharing few photos from wedding ceremony I attended few days back.


    
It was wedding of dear sister of Munir Bhai a kind man who is former student of hubby now friend too (Well mentioned in previous post)  .they are four brothers and two sisters. Eldest sister is married long ago. Their mother raised them as single since her husband died when kids were little. It was her wisdom and courage so all the children got decent upbringing and nice education. All brothers are well settled with good job and family. This youngest sister was precious to all of them. She got higher education and wanted to have career as professor in university but her mother wanted her to settle down first.  Here  the bride is entering the stage in support of friends.

   When  I went to take photos after her arrival I    found  her face covered like olden times of ours when bride would stay like this until she reaches to her future house . 

    In green on left is mother of bride talking to sister in law of her daughter. I took these two shots and got down from the stage and moved towards my table .i got pretty amazing company there. Two families and couple of friends who were colleagues too. But they didn't allow to publish their pics due to strict husbands and in laws. Because of interesting conversation I couldn't realised where the three hours go

             Isn't she gorgeous!  I adore her for her                        intelligence and smartness as according to her sister in law the wife of Munir bhai the kind man she is amazing skills of house management. I hope she will have the career of her likening soon. 





The pretty lady who is holding the bride in the picture is Sweet lady I mentioned in previous post. She is wife of Munir bhai and sister in law of bride. She came to me to invite to take photos of the bride if I want. This time bride uncovered her face and let the family and friends take photos including wedding movie maker. 
Tried hard to bring photos of food that she used to send us during our stay in Islamabad but couldn't. Posting via phone is bad :(

Okay dear friends that is it for now. See you soon. 
Keep shining and keep sharing your light as world needs it .
Health peace and happiness to you and to all you love

    1. Haha oh my precious dear Emma here specially in towns and small cities people believe that as bride is leaving her loved ones behind so she must look sad but believe me there are brides who dance and clap with friends in their own wedding.

  3. Interesting how people learn to live with their own climate. Living on the roof top sounds like a cool idea.

    1. Dear Red only few months of winter such as November to March we can stay on roof but sun is not enough cool until now this year to sit under for while

    2. As far as living under local climate even it is beyond limit we see in shows how people live in impossible places like desert particularly, on high peaky hills and so on .I wondered for long why don't they leave n settle somewhere else with better environment but now I feel that "for so many of us happiness mean living on native lands where their ancestors belonged though culture and other factors come hand to hand too"

    1. Thanks dear Cheri
      The custom of bride's face hiding has been disappearing with time here though in villages it has become optional. I don't know why this bride followed the old custom here otherwise no bride hide her face anymore .After are beauty parlour she take part in long photo session before leaving parents house and then once arrived at husband 'house groom and bride do photo session together.
      Unlike olden times when bride were treated specially once wedding days would start and were bond to hide face until they reach their husband house

  11. Your newly finished upper storey is beautiful! How kind of your husband to remember to place your family photos where you can see them easily. I understand your reaction to being closer to the sky. I always feel better being outside and looking up.

  12. Thanks Baili for showing the finished roof project at your home. I was curious as to whether or not you would have any furniture there in the future. I can understand how you enjoy going there as we also like a higher view in our apt. The outfits worn by the bride and others were beautiful and thank you explaining about the custom.
