I personally wouldn’t join in because I’m not comfortable doing things like that, but it sounds like it would be fun to watch if every one else was into it.

Ditto for me, I’d be happy to watch, but I wouldn’t participate. I absolutely hate party games at the best of times, but one involving singing or dancing would be even worse for me.

 I think if you do go ahead, just be aware that people may be uncomfortable taking part, and don’t try to make people participate if they don’t want to.

I’d agree with what others said. But some people really do like party games and might have fun with it!

The only other issue I could see is with your question #2. If the English speakers are playing but do not know any Hindi and the other group sings a Hindi song, there’s a good chance they won’t be able to tell what letter the last word ended with, as it would be a word they aren’t familiar with. That might make it difficult for them to play the game. Just a thought! 🙂

I would absolutely hate that kind of game. To me those kind of things are for kids parties. I’d cringe just watching let alone participating. But maybe that’s just me. Also you and your fiancé know your friends and family better than us so you can judge if this would work or if you’d just be met with silence. I know that kind of game at any party I attend will be met with awkward silence.

If people don’t want to participate they don’t have to, but I think you should do it! It’s part of your culture and the non-participants with enjoy watching 😊

Put me in the cringe watching group. I’d watch but just like with the dances I’d be hoping it ended quickly. If participation was mandatory I’d find a hiding spot until it was over. As stated above you know your audience way better than we do. But if you think enough people will participate without it being awkward then go for it.

This sounds fun if everyone is on board but given than not everyone would understand songs in Hindi I think it would be hard for your other guests to fall into the flow of the game without getting awkward.

I’ve been to quite a few mendhi ‘parties’ and never seen or heard of this. None of my husbands Indian family would do this, let alone anyone else lol.
