Bhangra isn't a Panjabi folk dance

As I recall, before the late 80s, celebrating Sikh marriages (maybe from a Tarkhan perspective?) used to be quite sombre affairs for the men, who'd be sitting separately, usually in another room, with maybe a few of them discreetly drinking - there was no bhangra.

Also, marriages in Panjab were quite simple too until NRI's (first in Doaba area) started the extravagance culture. This gradually caught on in other areas and now marriages leave people bankrupt in Panjab!  

I also heard some richer people in Panjab are starting to conduct funeral rituals in big venues.(traditionally, a sweet food was made at home and distributed if someone died, now some people have taken this to party venues)

Lavish Cars grace Soho Road for Pre-Wedding Procession

 

Birmingham’s Soho Road turned into a supercar showcase as several luxury cars graced the road as part of a pre-wedding party procession.

their vibrant colours lit up the road and turned heads.

Birmingham’s Soho Road was filled with lavish cars as part of a pre-wedding party procession.

The busy road is home to shops and businesses but it was the setting for a luxury procession which saw a group of men riding motorbikes and leading the procession.

The unnamed men were dressed up for the occasion, sporting sherwanis in dark shades of blue and black.

They also wore matching gold jewellery around their necks.

Their motorbikes contrasted with one another. One was a scooter, another was a vintage bike and a third was a modern sports bike.

They were seen stopping on the side of the road to wait for the rest of the pre-wedding procession.

A classic jeep drove down Soho Road. It was in army green and adorned with red, orange and yellow garlands.

Several convertible Lamborghini Aventadors were also part of the procession and their vibrant colours lit up the road and turned heads.

One was in the famous yellow that Lamborghini is known for.

Another was in a bold shade of purple while a third was in bright green.

All three stopped on the side of the road, showing off the iconic scissor doors.

Meanwhile, locals were seen stopping what they were doing to take pictures of the stunning supercars.

The extravagance continued as a Rolls-Royce Cullinan followed the supercars.

But unlike the brightly-coloured Lamborghinis, the Rolls-Royce was black.

It was a Black Badge edition, which is a more sporty version, designed with enhanced torque, power and control.

The four men later posed in front of the purple Aventador, looking proud of the fact that they had just led such a lavish pre-wedding procession.

The fleet eventually arrived at the destination. They were parked outside the destination, showcasing their grandeur.

Expensive cars are a common feature within modern Asian weddings.

Several are hired by family members and are driven in a convoy to the wedding as a way of portraying luxury.

This is one example which shows that no expense is spared to ensure that a wedding is a memorable, yet flamboyant event.

When it comes to South Asian weddings, competitiveness between families is always a huge thing.

Families are always looking to have a bigger wedding than the last person.

Is this all to make up for a lack of real personality and intelligence, which plagues rural Panjab?  You can hide behind the flash motors to try and cover that up......  

 

No wonder this place was the epicentre of grooming with fudhooness like this going on. I notice they have gone out of their way to exhibit their peasant-jut necklaces too. Well at least they aren't wearing the usual gay 'colourful jut bandhur' costume. I guess we should be thankful for that maybe?

What's the point of these cars in big Asian weddings? They're probably rented so it's a bit weird showing off something you don't even own.
