The bright lights beckon you
The bright lights at the AKS convention center are a tease. AKS convention is a popular hall in Frazer Town that plays host to wedding receptions, conventions and meetings. It is mostly in demand and they charge 1 lakh (€ 1,800) to 1.3 lakhs (€ 2,400) for using the facility for a day. It can seat 700 people.
Weddings are a big deal in India. People spend their lives earnings and their fortunes on just the few days of the wedding. The Indian wedding market is estimated to be a whopping 5000 Crores (€ 916 million). Halls like AKS thrive on this mania.
