The Copenhagen Effect

Arushi Shah has decided on an 'organic wedding'. At the 'Sangeet' function on Saturday, guests were served pulav with vegetables grown organically and cooked in sesame oil extracted the traditional way.

Arushi is part of 'an informal group which believes in not messing with mother nature and living the organic way of life.'

The marriage will take place at her home and castor-oil diyas will provide lighting instead of floodlights. Boiled chana and bor (local berry) will be served as starters at the wedding dinner and no refined flour will be used in the rotis.

There will be no plastic included in the gifts given to her by her parents. The utensils gifted will be of brass, copper and silver.The 'streedhan' is to be a cow and a calf.

What a heart-warming story. This should have been hitting headlines rather than so much of crap that routinely makes it. I hope she inspires many others.
