among a multi-day ceremony that brings joy for an extended time to the
typically equally extended families of the bride and the groom.
phase where elders bless the soon-to-be wed bride is rapidly taking on
an added Western practice of the groom presenting the bride with a
"wedding ring". Subsequently, the bride and the groom's families
separately apply turmeric on their bodies (perhaps to ward off diseases

actual shaadi / bie (wedding) ceremony. After that, the bride is
welcomed to her new home by the grooms family, and the bride and the
groom live happily forever.

all through these days - especially in rural Bengal.
