AMAZING TRADITIONS

When a girl becomes 22+ years, the parents starts looking for a suitable boy to be her LIFE PARTNER.... several factors considered...... as Chetan Bhagat writes in his novel TWO STATES ...... 
Girl must like the boy....
Boy must like the girl.....
Girl's parents must like the boy....
Boy's parents must like the girl.....
Girl's parents must like the boy's parents....
Boy's parents must like the girl's parents.....
Passing through all these hurdles, engagement is confirmed..... suitable date convenient to all concerned is fixed, marriage hall suitable to social status of the families is agreed..... followed by grand reception and Beegara Outhana...... Celebrations of family is over and the couple off to honeymoon...... depending on the budget......
Then after sometime..... once again get-together for celebration of conceiving a baby.... SEEMANTHA.... with blessings from elders for safe delivery of boy or a girl........
Srimantha refers to the occasion conducted in pregnant girls parents home to seek blessings by the lord for safe delivery and happy life. Pregnant girl is presented with various gifts. This celebration in some ways is similar to western practice of baby shower. The ideal goals aside, in these times it has become increasingly display of gold ornaments, lots of foods.

One such occasion we joined the celebrations with grand lunch, where we attended Supriya's wedding with Prashanth in Koteshwara..... inner circle couple from Sharjah-Dubai days...... It was nice gathering at Puttige Mutt at Basavanagudi, Bangalore on 31 Jan 2013..... enjoyed the grand lunch.....
