Most mothers will have tears in their eyes in this ceremony. Their sonny boy is finally all grown up. The groom’s sisters love the attention they get and the groom gets to be ogled at by all aunties.
The only ceremony, which finally seals the relation, between the brother-in-law and the sisters-in-law. The latter hide the shoes and the former has to bribe them to get them back. At the end of the day, it is a sweet ceremony that seals the bond between the two.
The saddest moment in the whole wedding is this. The parents have to finally let go of their daughter to a stranger. This is one ceremony that gets very emotional and later most cherished too.
