This has reference to a recent article in GK regarding picking-up of left overs at marriage ceremonies. It is unfortunate that the author has praised the waazwan at parties and criticised the picking of leftovers. It is equivalent to nurturing a tree and cursing its fruits. The ever increasing dishes at wazwan are itself a curse in our society and we should not take pride in owning such a prodigal heritage. Picking of left overs is a secondary thing, why don't we nip the evil in the bud by abolishing the waazwan system.
