The Haldi ceremony is to 'prepare' the bride and groom for the wedding. Family members apply a paste, made from herbs, oils, sandalwood and mainly turmeric on the face, arms and feet of the bride and the groom. This mixture is known to be good for complexion (bit like a face mask).
But Khushi and Arnav don't seem to think so at first. Think along the lines of name calling and the retaliation by Arnav as he smears his haldi over his unknown future bride..
Lots of love and (in Arnav's case) reading up on the meaning of this ceremony gives a different scenario second time around!
A continuation from Part 2- The Mendhi
One of the beauties of getting married again to the same person is recollecting the first times of each ritual. A fine example of this is in the story of Khushi and Arnav from the popular Indian serial show 'Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?' (What do we name this love?), who unknowingly completed most rituals prior to their first marriage and realise this as they set about getting married again this time with all rituals performed in front of everybody, Have a peek through and enjoy this traditional and colourful celebration!
