Spilling the Beans for A to Z




Ta Daaaaaaaa!!!
            Drumrolls!!!!
                     Red Carpet!!!
                            Bells and Horns!!!
                                           Clap Clap Clap!!!

The A to Z theme reveal day is finally here



It still has to set in. Have I really done this. Have I actually committed myself to a month long blogging challenge (the only respite being that the Sundays are Off). Routine, Discipline and commitment are few words which are always uncomfortable when they are around me. But the other two words which make this task look easier are Challenge and New. New challenging things have always intrigued me and managed to get the best out of me at all times. So even after a bumpy blogging of last 3 months, where I have been here but not completely here, I signed up for the A to Z Challenge.

This is my first time to have signed up for something this big and to keep me going I will need constant support (read - blog visit) and encouragement (read comments & compliments) from all you lovely people.

With the rate at which this A to Z fire is catching, I am sure all the bloggers by now have a hint of what it is. For few who still are ignorant I will be happy to enlighten. So basically this is a 26 day blogging challenge in April and you need to write your posts from A to Z , one each day. So the trick is to choose a theme and not make it very random. And the smart people actually pre-plan and schedule their posts for each day. Ofcourse I am not very smart, but my weekend target is to catch up on some smartness.

The in-house angel , Vidya Sury started a thread of theme reveal on her blog. And this encouraged (read forced) us to actually firm up our theme and go all out and announce it to the world. So now for all those eager eyes and curious minds, here comes my theme.

As some of you might know I am straight out of an Indian wedding and that too a one which happens to be of my brother. So I was actually midst of the thick of things and I have seen the giant too closely. And hence this theme came quite instinctively to me. So for the month of April I will be talking about the

A to Z of the Big Fat Indian Wedding

The high level, pompous cultural extravaganza called Indian wedding actually is a sum total of a lot of small and big details. And as they say beauty lies in details, it indeed does. But what they do not say is that duty also lies in details. So I will give you a first hand experience and share the necessary details of managing an Indian wedding and making it a reasonable success,

So all those who are married or have acted as wedding planners, this will be a good trip down the memory lane, and all those sitting on the fence waiting for their turn, this might turn out to be a repository of some useful tips and insights.

So let the drums roll ... We shall walk the aisle together ...

Also, taking a tip from my fellow blogger, Kajal, everyday I shall be featuring one post of A to Z challenge which hit my chord the most. So if you are stopping by to read my thoughts, please do spread some love to those lovely bloggers as well.

  13. Visiting from A/Z Theme Reveal; this does sound like an interesting theme. I have never been to an Indian wedding, but like most weddings, I do know there are tons of details involved for that special day. Should be interesting reading about them! Good luck with the challenge! I've learned from past years participating it is good to have a few posts written ahead so it doesn't get overwhelming once April begins.
