Wedding Engagement

Attended a wedding engagement of a son of a colleague and family friend of my wife. His name is Pradeep Alexander and that of the prospective bride Sindhu Rebecca. The engagement was held at Tambaram, a suburb of Chennai (Madras) in Tamil Nadu State in India. The function started off with some prayers and singing of songs. The engagement was a simple affair without much fanfare.
