Sounds Fishy ???
Sorry to disappoint but it isn't fishy at all, its just a game. Among all the rituals I have seen in weddings, this one is one of my favorites.
Simply put, it is a perfect ice breaker game. Generally it is played just after the bride enters her new house "Sasural" after the wedding ceremony. So what is the game all about ???
Objects: Big flat shallow plate of milk and water, one ring, one coin
Goal: To be the first to get the ring out of the plate of water and milk
Number of Players: Only two..Bride and the groom
How to Play : The ring is put in the shallow pot of milk and water. To add difficulty levels, flower petals are also added to the pot. The one who gets the ring first wins
Tips: A wise tip to the groom is to lose this game if he wants to win the smile of his bride. That would be priceless midst the apprehensions and turmoil of the bride of being at a new place among new people.
Rumor has it that this game determines who will be calling the shots in the matrimony. The winner of this game is said to have the upper hand in all the significant and insignificant decisions in future and gets to dominate the turf of arguments forever.
How naive of people to think that deciding the "one up" in marriage is as simple a game of ring and pot.
OK , now coming for the Star post for Day 6 it is our very own Vidya Sury. She "Did it again" when it comes to Family I do not think anybody can write it better than her.
