This group mostly consists of middle-aged aunties. Be it some juicy story about the bride or the groom, these aunties will make sure they get each and every detail about it. Their only point of interest in the marriage is to know about the bride or the groom’s family, his/her past, some inside story, and so on. Gathering every bit of news related to the marriage from different sources is their prime duty.

#2. The food critics

Food brings them together! Just one spoon of the dish and you will hear them say, “So-so hai, isse achcha to Vermaji ke beti ki shaadi mein tha”, “kitna oily banaya hai”, “maza nahi aya khane mein, quality achchi nahi hai”, and so on. They will taste most of the food items and comment about them with weird facial expressions. And if at all they do like some dish, they will take some time to openly praise it.

All the political issues will be discussed by them. Be it inflation, PM’s visit, elections, or any other political issue, every matter will be discussed on this table.

They are just there because they have been invited. From the beginning of the marriage till the time they leave, political discussions keep them going.

You might see them hanging around the time of rituals. They will keep advising about what should be done next in the ritual. The more the number of people, more the number of suggestions. Other than this, you will see them giving advice or asking others, “Shaadi kab kar rahe ho, age to ho gayi”, “Shaadi ki umar nikalne se pehle karlo shaadi. Kab tak akele rahoge”, or any such similar advice. They love to flaunt their shaadi gyan to others.
