Marriage: January 16, 2013

Main Page




I got married on January 16, 2013 with Rinku Chatterjee, a PhD student of English literature at the Syracuse University. We got married in Kolkata.

Following are some pictures from the wedding. 

This album is under construction - after all I am still recovering from the exhaustion of getting married.  I hope to add a description of what goes on for three days during marriage as per Hindu custom. I hope Rinku will write it for me :)
