PRINCELY AFFAIR

By Linda Lizioli

http://www.newsline.com.pk/newsMay2004/Newsliner1may.htm

Surrounded by friends and family and by drummers beating a joyous
rhythm the bridegroom approached astride a white horse, looking every
inch the Prince come to wed Mumtaz Mahal. In the soft light of dusk
hundreds of diyas twinkled, ropes of marigolds hung from the
surrounding trees lining the flower-strewn pathway on either sides.
Girls with baskets of roses showered petals on the procession as Vivek
neared the spot where Sonya awaited him. Standing under a canopy of
flowers, she truly looked as though she had stepped out of one of the
scenes from the film she is currently finishing, Akbar Khan's Taj
Mahal. The rich dull red and gold clothes and the jewels only added to
her beauty, and joy and happiness shone on her face as she and Vivek
garlanded each other and moved towards the ritual fire.

Sonia Rizvi Jehan, grand daughter of the legendary Madam
Nur Jehan, and Vivek Narain, a charming young banker, tied the nuptial
knot in New Delhi in a glittering ceremony attended by Sonya's mother
Florence Rizvi, her brother Sikander and Nur Jehan's daughters, Nazia
and Shazia.

As the various rituals were performed, I saw a simpler,
but far more touching scene, being played in my memory. Just after
Christmas we were gathered at Florence's home in Karachi after one of
her wonderful dinners when Akbar Rizvi asked Sonya and Vivek to come
close as he wished to bless their future union - at first we smiled as
an improvised fire in the shape of a shamadan was placed on the floor,
Florence's red lipstick was used as sindoor, and Sonya and Vivek
circled the candle. Suddenly the moment became very moving as Akbar
reached out to bless his daughter and her fiance - this was no
theatrical little scene he was playing, he was sincere in his
intensity; possibly he knew what none of us could have imagined: that
he would not be present on Sonya's wedding. It was a magical moment.
There was nothing of the glamour of the wedding in that evening, but
somehow Akbar made us feel that this was the true ceremony. And for
Sonya the memory of that evening will always remain in her heart - as
in ours.

Thanks for the great picture. I did no know her relatives remained in
India. They really got married as per vedic rites, a sacrament before
God, a real wedding! Not the fake Islamic marriage which is *not ever
a sacrament but a contract* that can be dissolved. Add to this the
Shia Mushaira(? correct speeling) or Muta marriage ( temporary
marriage even for an hour!) Islam is a cruel joke

Long live the couple.

I pray to the Lord

Hare Krishna

you know nothing about Islam. Like you, we do not worship hand-made idols.

If she has never been Hindu, she can't go back to Hinduism; she can
only convert to Hinduism.

Not really. She was converted to Islam at birth. People get converted
out of Hinduism into cults. So she readopted Hinduism. The whole of
Pakiland was Hindu before. India ( the subcontinent) has Hindus and ex-
Hindus.
