In a country, where women are conditioned to follow the societal norms, it is hard to find rebels like this Bride.
Indian marriages are full of traditional rituals and some of those have been designed centuries ago. Though the traditions have been handed over from one generation to the other, very few have shown the courage to modify the traditional rituals with the changing times.
One such courageous soul is this Bengali Bride. She recently became popular for shunning the age-old-traditional ritual of Kanakanjali.
During ‘Kanakanjali’, the bride is expected to throw rice to her mother and say that she has ‘repaid all her debts’. But, this young woman rather than saying what she was expected to say, she said:
“You can never repay parents’ debts.”
We can’t applaud her enough for showing her courage and standing against this age-old tradition. The other ritual that she didn’t hesitate from breaking was that of crying while bidding farewell to her family.
She refused to cry before leaving her home. And, said that she will frequently visit her maternal home because it will always be her house.
You can see this courageous bride donning the brightest smile and posing for photos with no tears.
The reason why the video went viral because people found it refreshing and inspiring.
It is great to see how the young generation is defying the age-old rituals which don’t make sense in today’s world.
