Significance of weddings in India
Indian weddings are not just about a girl and a boy getting married. It is an association of two families who will be relatives for the rest of their lives. India is known for its unity in diversity. Similarly, weddings in India also have diversity among them but the central idea of weddings remain the same.
In Hindu tradition, weddings are known as ‘Vivaah’. Bride and Bridegroom take seven vows around the fire. Bridegroom puts vermillion in the bride’s head and tie mangalsutra around her neck. And finally, they are married. In Sikh tradition, around the holy book of Guru Granth Sahib, the couple takes four rounds. This ceremony is known as Anand Karaj. In Islamic tradition, the wedding is known as Nikaah. A payment called Mahr is given by the groom to the bride. They sign a marriage contract and the wedding is completed. In Christianity, the wedding rituals are similar to that of weddings in the Western countries. In some parts of India, they follow the common Hindu tradition.
Divided by cultures and rituals, all these wedding ceremonies are united by one concept. That is of the association of the Bride and the Bridegroom.
