Who said fun lies behind closed doors?

It is now 12am. I was gonna log off my pc and go to bed but I saw today's orkut fortune. It read "Share your happiness with others today". So right away I came in here. Today was one of the best days of my life. It was our second house warming ceremony. Actually we had constructed a new storey(we means not literally us. I meant the masons and of course the engineer) and my dad had organized a small biriyani party to all the laborers and my relatives. To be frank it wasn't small, two goats had sacrified their lives for today's lunch. They were immolated for the biriyani the cook prepared. It is a tradition in India that they boil milk early morning after the prayers and the people drink it as sacred milk and the event is called as "Paal Kaachiraanga" in tamil (Verbatim translation to english would be 'milk boiling' :P). Everyone were there when they were boiling the milk but I was busy singing a duet with Kutti pisasu Vedika. Don't panic guys. I was sleeping as usual and dreaming (People say morning dreams will come true. Somebody please tell me if that's true). It was 5am and that's midnight for me. I got up at 9 am and that was pretty early according to my modus operandi.

My mom brought the milk and asked me to drink it after saying "Bismillah" but there was one condition. I was supposed to brush my teeth. I got ready in about ten minutes and my kinsmen and kinswomen started coming in. It was fun all the way. I were a person who spend a lot of time for my friends but now I am changed man. Family comes first to me. I was surprised to see all my matrikins and patrikins coming to my home. The best thing was even those who don't talk to each other (this usually happens in Indian families. People fight with their relatives and they don't talk for years) met, talked , patched up and it was a pleasure to see that happen. There were small kids all over my house. Some call me fahad chachu, some fahad maamu, some fahad anna and some don't even know who I am (they are too young to recognize me :P). We meet all our relatives only in such events. I didn't knew before that spending time for family would be so much fun. Arranging the lunch, distributing the biriyani to family members, compelling them to eat more and most of all watching these things happen in swiftness gave me immense happiness. After lunch everyone sat and talked in circles. Two funniest things happened today. One was a debate about who is the best? Me or my dad. The older patrikins were in favour of my dad and the younger ones were on my side. The second one was about my marriage. Who is gonna find a bride for me? Where should she be from? Should she be urdu speaking or tamil speaking? These were the questions that were put forward to me. Lol. "I don't know. Whatever my mom says, that's okay to me" I replied politely.

Who said fun lies behind closed doors alone? Of course that's different kind of fun. Come out of the closed doors and spend sometime for your family, then you will know what actually fun means. :)

P.S:- I am also happy for some other reason. I got a testimonial from my long distant friend Ishika. She is the best friend anyone can have. And one thing made me sad today. I was missing my miyu darling in the function. If she were there, it would have been the best function in my family.
