It is a gloomy day here in the San Francisco Bay Area and it just got a whole lot gloomier. My Leading Man has five sisters all living in India. Two were hoping to make the journey with their families to the US for the wedding. However, we just learned that their visas were rejected.
The American Embassy in India questioned why the wedding is taking place abroad when the Groom and Groom’s family are from India. Well Mr. US-Embassy-in-India, we are having the wedding here in the US because my family is here and we are having the reception in India because the Groom’s family is there. We worked out a compromise to fit our situation – two families living continents apart. Mr. US-Embassy-in-India, how hard was that to understand?
I am so very disappointed mostly for My Leading Man who was hoping his sisters and their families would join his parents for this important occassion. I am disappointed for his sisters who have been looking forward to their little brother’s wedding since they were kids. I am disappointed for his seven year old niece, who was admiring her passport each day and talking about her trip to America for her Mammu’s wedding.
