Dinner invitation is known as "ration card" – if there is no dinner, a lot of them are disappointed, they say "kya jate miya auto ka kiraya dal ke, kheench nai hai"
Many still take "Jode Ki Rakham" (cash)
If you ask Dulahe Raaj, he will say " mere ku nai maloom ammi aur abba ki badoun me baat huwi, main to nakko bola sheikh"
These days "Nikaah" takes place at Masjid, but the jahez (dowry) reaches goom’s home late night when neighbours are deep in sleep.
Men wear sherwani on "shadi ke din" and suit on "Valime ke din"(they think shewarni is the only dress for "Shadi", and suit for "valima dinner").
Invitations clearly mention that nikaah is at 7 pm but dulhe raaja arrives at 8:30, 9:00. 9:30.
Soon after nikah, people are desperately waiting for some one to announce "aaiye" – (call for dinner) because on his way to the function hall he will stop at a cool drink store and drinks 7up or pepsi (bhook khulne) and the moment he hears the call "aaiye he jumps like hungry dog.
They are crazy about "Chicken" – puri dish undal leta mauka milte hi. Doosre guest ka khyaal nahi karta.
Pahle haleem khaleta, phir chicken, phir biryani, phir chicken, phir ublahuwa anda, phir chicken, phir chicken, and again chicken, phir ek katora furit salad, phir kaddu ki kheer, phir qubani ka meeta, and after eating all this he puts some "Dahi ki chatni in his palm" and starts licking it.
When he is done with food, he needs a cigarette or gutka and then the discussion on the quality of food starts.
Ladies section is like "fish market"
