a unique wedding

claude de scoraille landed yesterday...
this is the very lady who dropped by in december to visit project why and then was touched by the magic of pwhy in a unique way: she decided to get married in the giri nagar slums..
a traditional indian wedding with the groom coming on an elephant and then a party with DJ and dance floor and the music of Dhoom in the Shiv mandir hall...
strange, as she and gregoire have been living together in a land where marital ties are not a social must..
to her, being with the children had made her want to take the ultimate step she had not felt the need for..
so april 30th 2005 will witness a strange union...
the card says "the children of project why request the pleasure of your company..." and it will be a wedding where children will play host.. and also be chief guests..
to many it may seem a PR gimmick..
well it is not so..
to all of us it is a unique experience, one that we could not have experienced if claude and gregoire had not taken this step..
this wedding trascends countries, social strata, religions, conventions, mores, traditions and much more..
it is a celebration of everything project why stands for: a meeting of human hearts. It brings together and weaves into a magical night elements that no one could have dreamt of ...
i hope the memories of this unique night manage to bring down the complex and suffocating walls that often emprison us and stops us from loooking with our hearts
