Murree (Punjab, Pakistan) provides a different atmosphere from much of the rest of Pakistan and the Punjab. Its location ensures cooler climates to much of the rest of the country thanks to the Himalayas, thus making it a perfect resort town for tourists who, as well as enjoying the cooler climate, can also enjoy an atmosphere inhabited by many rare animals, including the beautiful leopard. This ensures Murree remains a wonderful amalgamation of cultures within Pakistan, and this has influenced the food we create, making it unique from any other Indian Restaurant. The town has evolved since this time, with both native and foreign residents living peacefully with each other and sharing cultures and traditions that give Murree an atmosphere quite unlike anything else you may experience in Asia. Couple this with the wonderful climate and beautiful scenery and you have a place that has a claim to being paradise on Earth, and is the perfect inspiration for some stunning food.

Demographically, Pakistan is divided in rural hinterland and urban areas. Common among marriages in rural and urban areas are Mangnee, Mayoon, Mehndi, Nikah, Valima and living happily ever after. But the way these colourful rituals are performed greatly vary.
Rural areas of Pakistan still remain a largely conservative society, where many young people shy away when it comes to marriages. Exceptions apart, arranged marriages are a cornerstone of rural society. It remains the responsibility of parents and marriages are mostly among people within the same tribe, caste, community, family or locality.
This is what happens in rural areas with some minor changes from place to place: After initial understanding and covert messages between families of prospective spouses, the boy’s relatives visit the girl’s family and offer the proposal, on formal acceptance the mangni (engagement) takes place, marriage date is fixed, groom, with friends and relatives goes to the house of the bride in the form of barat (marriage procession) where the nikah (social contact) is performed. The consent of the bride and the groom to the marriage (ijab and qubool) in the presence of at least two witnesses is obtained to solemnize the contract as per the commandment of divine Islam. Guests are served with sumptuous food (notwithstanding what the law of the land says about the feast). Groom brings home his the bride. This is followed by Valima. Life goes on . . .
