last month I attended the marriage ceremony of my cousin. The house was decorated. In the evening his friends and relatives gathered at his house. All were in fine dresses. Ladies were singing songs. My cousin put on a special dress. He sat on a decorated mare. There was a band party with the ‘Barat’. We went to the Bride’s house. On the way, to the place, his friends danced. The house of the bride was also decorated. The bride came in a fine dress. She was looking very beautiful. They garlanded each other. They gave us a tasty dinner. There was a ‘pandit’. The bridegroom and the bride sat side by side. The ‘pandit’ spoke out oaths. The bride and bridegroom repeated them and walked around the holy fire seven times. Now they were husband and wife.
