Indian marriages involve a lot of entertaining, touching, and meaningful ceremonies. Kanyadana, the bride’s parents handing her over to the wedding in a symbolic way, conveys that the wife is then his role. He raises her side and teaches her the art of walking through living along, facing its joys and sorrows, delight and hardships with conviction and stamina.

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

The Anjara follows, in which the couple’s relatives grant the married couple’s blessing. The groom next presents the wife with her Lunar Sutra, saying that he accepts her as a significant part of his family.

Lastly, the Vidai ceremony occurs when the bride requests farewell to her kids and makes her way to her fresh home with her spouse. Her aunts gently taunt her by preventing her from entering the vicar’s home and inviting her. Finally, in order to crack through their blockade, he must offer them presents. A fun-filled, light-hearted custom! Juta Churai frequently performs this ceremony, where the groom’s sister-in-law tries to steal his sneakers and demand payment for them.
