Having gone thru monumental wedding, bride to now train mountaineers
"You see the beauty, the picture-perfect pictures. You see the grand stage, the choreographed dances. You see the summit above the clouds. But you don't see the rain that those clouds contain," wrote Amy Joyee in a Facebook status, eight long months after her wedding.
Joyee, who got married when her then to-be husband was battling a bout of Covid-19, hasn't stopped talking about the wedding for the last eight months.
Her inspiring statuses and constant updates about married life and wedding-day Bollywood dances have earned her quite the reputation on social media.
In fact, her reputation as a motivational bride, who shot to fame for saying that a wedding is like base-camp training and marriage is the summit, has been recently recruited as a trainer for young mountaineers.
The Dhoka Mountaineering Club founder Shusha Ibradim told this correspondent that he is extremely happy with the recruit and believes, just like Joyee's status updates, that she will be extremely diligent in her duty as a trainer for mountaineers.
"I have been through it all. From dancing at my friend's wedding to dancing at my own wedding. It's not an easy task, you know. First of all, you have to control your nerves to make sure you look calm and composed as a bride, then you have to make sure all the songs are extremely uncommon but also not that uncommon.
"I have done it all. Seen it all. Especially since my fiance had Covid then. It was a monumental task to make my wedding a success. I could not have done it without the support of my fantastic Team Bride. And that's basically how mountain climbing is. You have to be focused. You have to have stamina and you have to have a positive outlook in the face of impending doom and you need the support of your team, i.e. your Sherpa," says a very excited Joyee.
This correspondent was left confused trying to figure out why exactly she was sent to cover the event but she has been told this pays the bills. So, she is not one to question.
