When does a city become a Metropolis? When nobody asks you where you are from, nor wants to know where you are going.
I'm sure the Statue of Liberty is one such location (we waved at it distantly from US 1-9 yesterday, as we drove into Manhattan). The new pilgrimage spots that we saw on this trip were the construction at Ground Zero, the mass of swarming tourists around Times Square, and finally a Broadway musical.
As immigrants, we have moved from someplace where we were somebody to a large and distant country where we became nobodies trying to become somebodies again, chasing our dreams in the process.
I wonder if Parvati and Bahadur enjoyed the relative anonymity of a quiet wedding before the 1 year anniversary big bash.
Glad that you enjoyed the wedding, Norman. These are usually the kind of social event in India where every family that has a passing acquaintance with the parents of the bride and groom are expected to be invited and always attend.
I'm sure the logistics would have been crazy, but there are no formal seating arrangments for these kinds of events.

If the nan is good, everything else will follow.

A pretty good standard to go by :-)
