There are innumerable reasons, why Indian marriages are more appealing than other weddings. An Indian Wedding is full of customs, rituals and traditions which are followed by people blindly without even knowing them. Every custom or ritual has its own meaning. Right from wedding invitations to the Bidai ceremony, every custom, every tradition has a meaning of its own. These meanings are derived from our ancestors and the generation today is modifying these traditions according to their own convenience.

There is lot of spice in the customs of Indian wedding. Let us have a look at some of the customs. The first is the wedding invitations. The first wedding card is sent to the Gods and Goddesses summoning them to bless the couple. Mandap which is a decorated canopy supported by four pillars under which bride and groom are made to sit, to perform all the rituals in front of sacred fire. Mandap is decorated with bright and lively colors which signifies the radiance that marriage is going to bring in their life.

Mehendi: A day prior to the wedding, the bride and other female members of the family put heena on their hands, commonly called mehendi with different designs and patterns. The bride gets the best women to put mehandi on her palm, hands and legs and it is the best design of the mehandi that is put on her. The best part about this custom is both the bride and groom write their partner’s name in their hand in hidden manner. They are asked to search their respective names on their partner’s hand and whosoever searches it first is believed to be more dominating. It has been believed since the time the custom of mehndi originated that the darker the color of mehndi in one’s hand the more is the love for you in your partner’s heart.

The baraat is all about dancing as much as you can. In baraat, the dulha or the groom rides on a white lady horse and all the baraati’s i.e all the friends and relatives dance with full energy on the sound of the drum. T Milni, the English meaning of which means merger. Once the baraat reaches at the venue, the bride’s family greets the guests with garlands, flowers and gifts. Then similar way of greeting is done by the groom’s family. There is also a Shoe Hiding Game. When the bride and Groom sit for pheras, they both remove their footwear’s before sitting in the mandap. As per the tradition, the bride’s sisters or friends will hide the shoes of groom and when the pheras are over, groom has to fulfill the demands of them in return for shoes.

All these wedding traditions have a meaning of their own and all these invite participation of both the families and their relatives and friends.

Recently, in the June end, I attended my best friend’s wedding, who is a Marwari. As she belongs to a very wealthy family she had sent me a very precious looking wedding card. Since she is my best friend I reached her place 10 days before the wedding date to help her out with the preparations and practice for the dance of the Mahila Sangeet Function, which is held in the evening before the wedding day. They had called special choreographers for that function and paid them around 6 lakhs only for teaching dance to all the members and relatives of the family and friends.

Functions other then wedding started 5 days before the wedding date. Every day a celebrity host or a singer or a dancer or performer was called just for normal functions. From this, you can figure out, to what extent they must have gone to show off their wealth on the wedding day and on Mahila Sangeet function. Dancers and performers from abroad stay for countless number of guests in the five star hotel in Udaipur. Pick up and drop facility for all the invitees, giving away laptops and expensive mobile phones as winning gifts for the games they made us play, infinite food items, and the extra ordinary entry of the Bridegroom in the Space Shuttle on the wedding day. OH MY GOD!! That was way too much. The worst thing is yet to come. That is giving of loads and loads of dowry. The total expenditure they did on wedding including dowry was around 5-6 crore.

But the admirable part is that, there are many Marwari’s, who are becoming alert on this issue and taking positive steps against this. Like in Kolkata, 80 Marwari associations announced that they have decided to be less flashy about the weddings. Right from the wedding invitations to the Bidai they will have simple arrangements but big celebration. They have decided to boycott every marriage where dowry is accepted and have also decided to revive the traditional system called ‘four-rupee milni’. This meeting was attended by various social activists including dignitaries. This decision has been accepted and appreciated by international, national and local associations and many more. The Marwari community has also come up with an idea of seeking help of the religious gurus on this matter as they have greater influence on the society.

The aim behind this strict decision is to build a progressive Marwari Society. If one community has started this tradition others should also follow it. This seems to be just the beginning and the same can be followed by other communities in India. It is believed that a lot can be saved and this money can be channelized for some philanthropic efforts by the bride and the groom. For example choosing eco friendly wedding invitations will not only save money but it will also reflect how much you care for the environment and the nation in particular.
