Indian tradition has been existed for more than hundred years or more, and will continue to do so. I am from India. In India there are many religions, customs adopted here are many. I would like to elaborate a few, that people from other countries to adopt over here. I will be stating some examples also.
Marriage is one of them which I would like to elaborate. In India, marriages take place with full vigor. Marriages here are held for week. In the begining of the week all relatives and friends are invited for the marriage preparation. We have a dance program, mehandi program and many more. Some `pujas` are also held before the marriage. One finds this type of marriages in South India. Many ceremonies takes place before the marriage. Like the ring ceremony, arshna ceremony. Couples are garlanded with huge garlands during the marriage day. `Murtha` is when invited people come and wish the couple with gifts. After the `murtha` people have lunch. After the marriage, couples go to the temples to pray God. People dress up in traditional wear. All of them wear new dresses. Ladies wear Saris and men wear suit. Bride and bridegroom too are very well dressed up. Brides wear saris, they apply mehandis on their palms, legs and sometiomes on their arms. Bridegrooms wear `Jubba pyjamas`. Here marriage is life time relationship. Couples take oath, that they will together till death, help each other when in peril and lead happy life. Trust and love binds the couple.
So people from other countries should try to adopt Indian marriages. I would love to say that people from other countries should try and learn more about Indian Marriages. Have faith. If couples have faith in each other, I dont see any divorces taking place.
