-Being my BOSOM friend, he invited me to join the function. When I went to his home, I saw that two of Rohan's cousins were having a QUARREL.

-Actually, they made a MOUNTAIN OUT OF A MOLEHILL and returned to their respective homes. Even though Rohan tried to RESOLVE their issue, it was like his words were FALLING ON DEAF EARS.

-The situation was OUT OF CONTROL. Instead of reducing the burden, those cousins left Rohan alone when he really needed them.

-As I could not see my friend all alone, I offered to volunteer at the wedding. I took the duty of welcoming all the guests.

-My friend's father always liked my AMIABLE nature. He was even happier when I called my brother to help. My brother picked the guests from the railway station as well as the airport.

-Apart from this, I also checked twice whether the catering service was satisfying the arrivals. Fortunately, everyone was happy with the cuisines provided.

-It became really HECTIC because there were so many people and I was doing this for the first time.
