That's when Gopi's Tamil wedding began, in the rural town at the southern state.

I got a banana-leaf-shaped invitation a couple of weeks earlier while sitting at the door step of his neighbors, and my friends, S.K Mani and family.

I got down to the street from my rented room on Gandhi road, I was about half way to the temple as I heard a call from behind and there was Gopi with his daughter on his hands and his family following along.

The beautiful wedding of hi cousin was flooded with fresh flowers and frut withing the ancient rock walls of the Temple.

After the Hindu ceremony everyone got on the road with the marching band in front and walked over to the Mandabaum, the wedding hall

On the way the were firecrackers taking off.

I went along and hovered around for some snaps to capture the energy and atmosphere and environment.

The bull you see stands in the 'Goods Carrier'/ bullock-cart-for-rent movers station and was you can see was too wondering about this odd two-legged running around with a little black box
