From Bahawalpur to Bradford: South Asian weddings in the UK
Firstly, apologies for the delay in posting, I've been oop north in Bradford at my cousin’s wedding. These days, 'Bradistan' as it's fondly (and not-so-fondly) known, has become a symbol of Britain's struggle with multiculturalism, race and identity politics. I, however, am more interested in family politics. Specifically, those pertaining to three generations of my family - grandparents, aunties, uncles, grandaunties, granduncles, first cousins, second cousins, cousins three-times removed etc, all rammed into two four-bed semis during the year's one freakishly cold and snowy week.
