    Rita, Rightly said. Now a days labourer problem .All the time and efforts to organize function is hell of a task. Pay and everything is handled by caterers. From lighting, decortion, preparation to ecxecute the function. They are well experienced. Its not short and sweet It is very comfortable and hastle free. Where is your native place?

    Dont spend money on marriage ..it will easily cost your life time savings .. Please use this opportunity get your girl or boy married ..keep it a low key affair ..blame it on corona ..save huge sum of money ..reinvest in something wise and useful that is useful in sustaining a quality life . Don't let your ego ruin your money .. After all marriage is a one day affair ..What matters is the love that develop between the boy the girl and their families .. We know that 95 percent marriages are failures ..many live a compromised life ..There is zero love ..between families post marriage .. Only love is money and position or that swanky car or flat that you own

    IMHO, this is the most irrational & foolish decision to allow mass congregations in houses; it's a sure shot way to jump from frying pan to 🔥! Just put a blanket ban on all types of functions; whom are you trying to please?

    Only last week, my friend's relative got married. Both groom and bride are professionals. They just took 2 witnesses and only their parents and got married in the church and went home. But, they arranged a grand lunch in an orphanage for 600 inmates, which they said, gave them more happiness than a grand reception. I wish all mothers today, a "Happy Mother's Day". For children, 2nd Sunday of May, is a happy mother's day, but for mothers 365 days are children's days.

    WHO warned India last year itself, but the top chair was busy in patting his own back, and did nothing! We had enough time to build infrastructure, but the only development seen is in physical appearance ( growth of beard). Hash tag resign Modi was blocked by face book.

    Marriage is one time affair in one's life and can't be done whenever we want to get married.There are many rituals to be followed.Marriage being an auspicious and special occasion,we need to invite at least our close relatives,friends, colleagues and well wishers.Even if we organize the function in simple way,it will cross four hundred to five hundred people plus.Then only some kind of satisfaction is there for bride and bridegroom's party. However holding marriage functions at home with minimum number of people is ridiculous and with so much of tensions only program should be conducted. Under the present Corona pandemic situation, holding any programs is not advisable in the first place.I don't want to vouch30

    Another bad decision. If this allowed the party will definitely swell more than fifty.If the brides house is far away they may spread the covid visa versa. Better to look in to this.

    @ Elwyn Goveas, Mangalore Those days there were hardly any caterers in Mangalore. D'souza (market road) were the pioneers in catering business. I too remember having wedding in our house with erecting matov (tarpaulin overhead) cooking place and all sorts of arrangements. Rose, wedding lunch, pothyapon and following day (boxing day) country band and country dance. slaughtering animals (sheep, pig) what a fun! Its a very tedious affair but also enjoyable to be with friends, relatives, neighbours etc.

    Flavian mangalore,kuwait,yes those were the days.Ten whole village people would get together ,used to collect essential vessels ,and put together which later were given back ,used to cook, drink ,dance and enjoy till morning .Morning again begann the next etappe.so on.Now we dont have no people to do as previously youngsters ,ladys are in kuwait UAE.or America.only oldies are in villages.Many new generation dont know to cook .Most of them go working ,no time for this.so a caterers are a good choice without much stress who can afford or not.I feel when in this time of Corona one has to take it as the time allows.They say ,kalok thakka kola.We cant stick to old times when sickness is at the door step.Best is with allowed few people get marry ,then time allows ,invite all those who you left off or according to your purse,make a big celebration.we too do the same here.Go with the time.Dont go and hang yourself to a tree because it was your grand father s.

    40 persons in a house in Bengaluru,Seriously ,??? Its breaking all social distancing norms. Unless you have house with a hall as big as a football field. Which i doubt. The houses in bangalore are really small. Then you can blame Govt for rise in Covid cases. Please postpone the marriage by couple of weeks. The couple can stay connected thru social media.

    All ceremonies where people crowd should be banned till further notice; in a house with space constraints, there would be very high risk of transmission?
