'A memoir of love, secrets and lies in Wolverhampton' as the jacket blurb promises.
And as for the author's love of George Michael's back catalogue, some things are worth keeping secret.In Sathnam Sanghera's memoir 'Schizophrenia' is the key word, as both the clinical condition suffered by two of Sanghera's family and the feeling of dislocation that comes of being born and raised in Britain in a Punjabi Sikh household.Sanghera is an experienced feature writer and interviewer who, hitting 30 and splitting up with his white girlfriend, decided to explore his roots and make some sense of his life through writing the story of how his parents met and settled in Wolverhampton.The bride's family visits the groom's family bringing gifts, the paste for the tikka mark and a silver tray with a few grains of rice and saffron in a small silver bowl, 14 dried dates (chuharey) wrapped in silver foil and a coconut wrapped in gold leaf.
The bride's father applies the mark to the groom's forehead, blesses him and gives him some money.The origin of this ceremony lies in the arranged marriage norm, where the parents would announce that they are looking for a suitable match for their son or daughter, and once they had found that match, their search had come to an end.
