On the second day of the event of my wedding, we all shifted to this place which is made exclusively for organizing wedding functions. The first thing that we did was worship of Lord Ganesha, but the kids who were playing with my digital camera chose not to take pictures of the ritual and waited till the drummer came to rock the party.
The function of the wedding officially started today!
(Trivia: It was for the second time everyone rounded up to shake their legs in the wedding!)
Dance! Dance! Dance!
Dance! The ‘Garba’ Style! In a circle.
Just do it man!
And at the same time the ‘Mandapam’ was being stablished. It is a process for creating the sacred place in the house to do the holy rituals.
And the gates were getting decorated with colorful papers.
As the rituals are, the ‘Mandapam’ is supported by one of my cousin’s husband. You can see the priest, Sharad, there instructing my parents for the next thing.
The Holy Fire!
And they will try to teas and molest me now! It is called ‘Haldi’, means turmaric. to disinfect me and they will wash me. It was 3 in the afternoon and the temprature outside was 43 degrees. It was a killer man. HOT!
