Wedding reception

So, last night was the valima reception for the same wedding I was whinning about earlier. I excused myself from the torture on the pretext that a couple of programming assignments are due, one was tonight and the other one is on Sunday. My brother and his in-law(outlaw) went there. The dinner was even more unruly than what I saw on the wedding night. Thank God, I wasnt there.
My bhabhi said that she put a plate down on the table to get some food onto it, and as soon as she took a spoonful out of the serving dish, she discovered that her plate wasnt there. Someone took it. Since people were after anything they could get their hands on, they had taken multiple plates with servings of everyhing, most of which they would never eat. So, there was a shortage of plates, and hence, she was unfortunate. On the gents side, things were even worse and several relatives of the groom resorted to eating in the women's dining area.
Hamaree niyyatain kab bharain gee?

Shair Sey Mazrat Key Saath

Hazaroon Khuwhisheen Aisee Kay Har Khuwahish Per Dam nikley...
Nikley Meeray -----------Lekin phir Bhi Kam Nikley......

Filling up the blank space in the bold sentence will result in different variants....


I would make it like that...

Hazaroon Log Aisey Jin Ka Khaney Pey Dam Nikley....
Nikley Shadi per Jab Khana tu Paletein Kam Niklein....

Waisay I have got another variant of it especially for Wedding ocassions....:P

I wonder if people would even bother to attend ceremonies if it weren't for the food and/or drinks! There was a nazm in our tenth grade... it was about 'Trains' but it fits our shadi dinner table scenario too:

"langotee kas khuda ka naam ley ghuss ja sawaree kar"

Of course there's one more which I'm going to repeat here: "Never underestimate the power of fools in large groups". When everybody runs west, go east... ;)
