Without a doubt, Indian weddings are one heck of a grand, vibrant, and arduous affair. There are so many pre and post wedding rituals involved in a wedding function that it barely give the bride and groom chance to take a breath of relief.
When it comes to making the wedding function a successful affair, Indian families leave no stone unturned. Even if they have to follow superstitions, they will follow them without hesitating a bit just to ensure the blissfulness in wedding function. The amusing thing is these beliefs and superstitions have been passed from one generation to another and people still follow them blindly.
Here are some Indian marriage myths that are hilarious as hell and make you question the intelligence and education of the people.
In a majority of the Indian traditions, the groom’s family welcomes the bride through a symbolic custom named ‘Rice Ritual’. In this ritual, a newlywed bride has to enter the house by kicking the Kalash full of rice with her right foot. It is considered as a bad omen if the bride enters inside the house with her left foot first.
Most of us love to dance in rain and savor the feeling of dinky drops on our face. However, rain on the wedding day is something that every couple wishes not to happen. In some Indian traditions, rain on your wedding day is considered as a sign of good luck and happy life of the married couple.
The very thought of an individual carrying knife all the time can scare the hell out of some people.
