My Dear Fellows,
Come to Ahmedabad and be mesmerized by nine days of cosmic spectacle, sparkling chaniya choli, and alluring Garba dance in obeisance to the goddess Durga. Beginning Tuesday, October 13 and continuing well into the night of October 21, it is with pleasure that Kuljan and I invite you to our home to celebrate the longest dance festival in the world, Navratri 2015.
In America our wares would go unnoticed – nay! – seem repugnant, but see here how they now titillate and delight beyond your most colorful fantasies. Like a salesman at a Turkish Bazaar I will waft to you the exotic perfume of modern civilization and rub your delicate, wrinkling noses in it. We offer you:
A terrace with a view: a view of a shopping mall
Had enough of the fast life, you say? Need to get away for the weekend? Leave your stress behind and come to clean, orderly Ahmedabad where the streets are quieter, conversation lasts longer, and daytime naps are permitted. Here in Gujarat even the food is a little bit sweeter.
We live in a neighborhood (“society”) that has not previously housed foreigners, and they were a bit shocked to discover an unmarried man and woman co-habitating. As such, we are working hard to preserve tenuous, new relationships with our neighbors. I don’t have a single doubt that you can all manage this respectably and with grace, but please bear in mind that in our dear dry state of Gujarat what might seem like mature partying to us may appear wild and uncontrollable to others.
If some of you are not yet convinced allow me to tack on one little doozy of a lagniappe: Kuljan will be here, and wherever Kuljan goes memes are sure to follow.
Alongside us will be a host of other fellows who have already confirmed their attendance. Come hobnob with the muckety-mucks of today’s society in our cozy 2 BHK.
There will also be chai, served at 10:00 am and 3:00 am respectively. Yes, am is correct. Please plan ahead to attend both as we know not what or when secrets will be revealed.
Love and Dandiya,
Crysty and Kuljan
