- Somewhere in the middle of dinner, the realization hit me that I'd already become used to missing Sumit, but now I'd also need to get used to missing Aditi. I know she will not be able to come back to India for at least sixteen months, until her MBA is complete.
- In the middle of the havan, Aditi's mom started to feel a little unwell. She is actually an asthma patient. She had to be taken out into the fresh air and given her inhaler. Aditi was pretty upset about her mom not being able to attend much of the ceremony. I also felt pretty much the same way, especially at the moment when Aditi wore her mangalsutra and sindoor for the first time and her mom wasn't there to see it.
- The day after the wedding, I visited Aditi's parents and sister at their place. Her sister told me that she was impressed by the way I took care of a lot of little things, because she would have lost track of half of them if she'd had to do it. She said, "Aap nahin hote to hamaara kya hota?" I was almost in tears at that instant.
- Aditi told us (the common friends) that her day was more special because we were there.

Emotional Moments From Aditi And Sumit's Wedding
It was a wedding, of course. If there were fun moments, there were also some very emotional moments.
