Indian weddings (wherever they happen in the world) are known for their cheer and spirit. After the official ceremonies when people have eaten (and have had a few to drink), the party really takes off. The DJ is in place, with a heady mix of Bollywood, the 80s, Abba, Latin groove, Hip-hop, and Bhangra--more types of music than you would hear at the Grammys! Indians are great at improvising or "Jugaad"--kind of a "cutting the corners" innovative thinking to solve the problem of the moment. And so when the DJ heralded a limbo dance song at this party, the audience obliged with a reveler's Sari!
