Our friends Emma and Harvey have returned from India after attending the wedding of Harvey’s cousin to a girl of Indian Heritage. They have had an amazing time and have decided to host an evening of all things Indian. The guests are asked to beg, borrow or steal a saree or salvar kameez and I am amazed at the effort that everyone has gone too.
I’ve raided my suitcase of sarees and found one I liked. Steve wears one of his Sri Lankan shirts and Em gives us both a pottu as we walk in to make sure we look the part completely. The table is laden with samosa’s and other goodies for starters and spicy Indian curries, rice and chutneys are the mains. It is a wonderful evening of music, laughter and catching up with many of our neighbours who no longer live next door.
