Default To ccooper: Tribal Bridegroom

Thanks ccooper. About the ceremony: it's a lengthy ritual and it is performed for three days prior to marriage. Ladies of the respective families of both the bride and the bridegroom purify them by applying turmeric paste althrough the day while singing ceremonial songs. Ironically, the bride and the bridegroom are not allowed to take showers during these three days. Imagine remaining covered with thick layers of turmeric paste mixed with sweat for three blistering summer days with murcury rising upto 50 degrees C.
