Scandal at Cheemeni
In an otherwise routine and mundane marriage of Ravi's daughter Ashwadhi and Whatchamacallim's son Mr.Who in Cheemeni (a small town in Kannur), all hell broke loose when a 26 year old man walked into the auditorium with a shaven head. According to sources, the man was a near relative from the girl's side. He was immediately hounded by a horde of relatives all of whom had only 1 question in their heads.
Some of them refrained from asking the question directly to avoid mutual awkwardness. So they merely looked at the scantily endowed head and tried hard to talk earnestly about other matters of importance. Like when the coming was done, whether the food was had and when the going will be. However, most others just couldn't hold themselves back. After all, it just begged the question didn't it? A few of the attendees who were people of strong principles, made no secret of their displeasure. They spoke as a representative of the vast majority and admonished the bewildered man who knew not the seriousness of it all.
