Rice holds abundant importance in Hindu religion and is considered a symbol of prosperity. This ceremony is considered a thank you gesture from the bride to her parents for nurturing and loving her throughout her life.

2. Ribbon Cutting at Baraat Entry

After the to-be-wed couple, the only thing that ladkiwaale and ladkewaale care about is groom’s shoes. Ladkewaale keep the shoes safe from the ladkiwaale because if the saaliyan find the shoes, the groom cannot have it back without paying the shagun.
