Our guide Akshay gets the chai ready.
He got married last year, and it was fascinating hearing about it. He had met his wife one time before, for five or six minutes.
"But it is a good marriage. I like her very much. And before we were married, we do the horiscopes, and our families check everything. It was 95%, 99%. So when the marriage proposal arrived, we were sure it would work. Everything was very good, saying the match was very good. She is educated woman too. In the past, we must just do an arranged marriage."
"But this way it was different. That is in the past. This time, she and I talk many times before we were married. The engagement was one year long, and we talk many times. It was all over WhatsApp. So we were sure it was good. Before the engagement, just once, but even then, the horoscopes assure all of us -- both families -- that it is a good match."
