Rajkot, Gujarat, India
wedding funLast year, my cousin got married in our fathers' hometown of Rajkot, Gujarat. Traditionally the young women of the bride's family are sent out to welcome the groom's family before the ceremony. In anticipation of a 3-hour ceremony, we started the day with some traditional pranks and games to get in a festive mood! This was the welcoming tikka where I splashed a little bit of the kumkum powder on the groom's nose! Later, some of my younger cousins stole the groom's shoes in exchange for a prize from his family!
