So, picture this: the year is 2004, and Vanisha Mittal, the only daughter of steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, is about to get hitched. Now, this isn't just any wedding. This is a week-long, $60 million extravaganza in France. We're talking about a spectacle that would make even the most seasoned party-goers' jaws drop.
The Eiffel Tower lit up with fireworks, painting the Parisian sky with a million colors. The air was filled with the sweet melodies of a private show by none other than pop sensation Kylie Minogue. And the guest list? Oh, it was a who's who of Bollywood royalty. Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and Saif Ali Khan were all there, adding their star power to the glittering event. This wedding was the talk of the town, breaking records and setting a new standard for opulence.
Fast forward to a few years later, and along came the Ambanis. Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in India, was about to marry off his only daughter, Isha. Now, the Ambanis are known for their extravagant lifestyle, but this wedding was something else. They looked at the Mittal's record-breaking wedding and thought, "We can top that."
The details of Isha's wedding are a bit hush-hush, but rumors suggest it was an event that made the Mittal's lavish bash look like a backyard BBQ. The guest list was a closely guarded secret, but you can bet it was a roll call of the who's who in India and beyond. The cost? Well, let's just say it was enough to make the $60 million Mittal wedding look like pocket change.
So, there you have it - a tale of two weddings, each more extravagant than the last. It's a glimpse into the world of the ultra-rich, where money is no object and every event is a chance to outdo the last. It makes you wonder what's next, doesn't it?
Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
Originally called hony moon during medieval times, the word honeymoon is now synonymous with a romantic vacation that takes place following a wedding. Back in ancient times, newlyweds were gifted a bottle of mead, which is a mix of fermented honey and water. Loved-up couples were instructed to drink the sweet alcoholic beverage daily for 30 days after tying the knot.
The 30 days ties in with the lunar cycle (hence the word moon), and the honey alcohol ensures that sweetness will always remain in the marriage. To this day, there's speculation about when the word first appeared and the country where it originated. Many people claimed it was first documented in Germany in 1791.
But where did the vacation time come into the picture? The word honeymoon is now just a word used to describe the events after a wedding. Centuries ago in Britain, the honeymoon became a trip that a couple took to visit people who couldn't make the wedding.
Nowadays, we don't drink mead for 30 days and visit everyone who couldn't make the party. A honeymoon is now a chilled break designed to enjoy with your spouse.
