Traditions of Indian weddings

Indian weddings involve a lot of fun, touching, and significant festivities. Kanyadana, the bride’s father handing her over to the groom in a symbolic way, symbolizes that the bride is then his responsibility. He raises her finger and teaches her the art of walking through living together, facing its joys and sorrows, enjoyment and adversity with conviction and durability.

Another significant occasion is Laja Homam, in which the bride and her father’s family and friends also throw puffed rice ( also known as ahutis ) into the sacred fire. According to legend, the festival will purge the wife of all bad emotions and prepare her for a fulfilling marriage. In the process, the wife is furthermore smeared with spice as a form of purification, and five Veda mantras are recited.

The Anjara follows, where the princess’s parents give the wedded couple their grace. The wedding then presents the bride with her Lunar Sutra, saying that he accepts her as a significant member of his family.

Ultimately, the Vidai festival occurs when the bride proposals farewell to her relatives and makes her way to her new home with her father. Her sisters playfully taunt her by preventing her from entering the vicar’s home and requesting entry. Subsequently, in order to bust through their siege, he must supply them presents. A fun-filled, light-hearted tradition! Juta Churai frequently follows this custom, where the vicar’s sister-in-law tries to steal his shoes and demand payment for them.
