Daji and Sarasi Getting Married
My cousin Daji got married to the lovely Sarasi today. We took a moment to remember the late Lackshman Kadirgamar, but we also moved ahead with the life that he worked to preserve. I’ve received a few kind emails and calls asking about the state of emergency in SL, so this is partly to show that life goes on as usual. Daji, if you know him, is a Thomian and Scout and probably the most solid human being I know. Well brought-up and kind, I’ve never seen him raise his voice or cause harm to anyone. I don’t think he takes shit from anybody either, but I’m sure he’s polite about it. Sarasi is a beautiful kind young girl, and I think they’re the makings of a strong family. The wedding was a real pleasure – seeing all the family, including girls I’m not too closely related to.
The one (embarassing) story I know about Daji and Sarasi is one of their first dates, on New Years. They were driving to a party in his van and Daji had to stop suddenly, probably for a puppy or orphan or something. Sarasi wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and her head went smack into the windshield, cracking the glass. We joked that she was only dating him because she was incapacitated.
The wedding was at a Catholic Church somewhere I forget. The service was a bit unintelligible, but all the lamps the photographers bring makes for interesting lighting. The reception was at Diyawanna, Water’s Edge – in Battaramulla. That was really great. The band was good, people danced to Baila, the food was excellent, and it was wonderful to see all the family. For most of my life I haven’t had family around, so I really like it. What’s strange (and cliche) is that the kids get big really fast. These are a few photos anyways, there’s a small gallery on Flickr.
