Traditional Bengali weddings are mainly divided in three Rituals.

First consider about pre-wedding rituals. These are the activities before marriage. This pre-wedding ritual is also divided in to some parts known as:

Ashirbaad – Ashirbaad is a very special day, on this day the elders people of the groom’s family go to the bride’s home for bless her and alternatively the elders of bride’s family go to the groom’s home to bless him.  They bless them by sprinkling husked rice and trefoil on their heads and giving gold ornaments to them.

Gaye Holud – This is another important ceremony in which, five or seven married women of the household grind turmeric with mortar and pestle and anoint the bride with turmeric paste. This is the process which brightens up the bride’s complexion and makes her skin glow and the bride loom very beautiful at the time of marriage. Gaye Holud ceremony is also celebrated on groom’s house.

Dodhi Mongol – this function happens on the day of marriage, here seven married ladies adorn the bride’s hands with the traditional bangles Shakha and Paula.  Here one pair of red and one pair of white bangles are used and then feed the bride a meal of curd and rice, the only meal after which the bride and her parents fast the whole day before marriage.

Like pre-wedding rituals these are a lots of rituals are celebrated in marriage and after the marriage. The rituals celebrated at marriage are: Bor Boron, Potto Bastra, Saat Paak, Mala Badal, Subho Drishti, Sampradan, Yagna, Saat Pak (couple), Anjali, Sindur Daan and Ghomta. And the rituals celebrated after marriages are: Bashar Ghar, Bashi Biye, Bidaye, Bou Boron, Kaal Ratri, Bou Bhaat, Phool Sajja, Dira Gaman.

We think Online shopping is a good news for all husbands because you do not have to hold your baby in the crowded shop while your wife busy looking as sarees or salwar kameez or punjabi set or suits for her..Congrats

Women Love Shopping whether her husband is a road pati or crorer pati. We have research on many women who purchase a new saree or salwar always for a new occassion. Occasion may be a marriage party or Birthday celebration or Pandal Hoping in Durga Puja. Even few women told us that they buy dresses and silk sarees for each day if going out in weekend. For Example if Someone going on a vacation for seven days to a Puri, She will not go until her husband buy sari or suits for each day she will stay there.

Husband In Action During Shopping

If you mark husbands in any shopping Mall while his wife busy looking for a bomkai saree or ikat saree, he is holding the children or running behind his child to make sure he/she not break anything from the Store. Women love shopping and they love you if shop whole day with them holding your baby. Husband might ask God, why he made him a married man.

Majority of husband we interviewed told he don’t like to go out for shopping with her wife.

Yesterday at a shop one lady looking for a cotton saree, for which a seller show at least 100’s of sarees to her, while her husband standing out of the store because if his wife don’t take it the store owner may finally through her out of the store. In Some cases she select the saree, took the saree and went to the billing counter but suddenly she changed her mind because she want a different piece with another color. Best of luck all husbands.

During any occasion every women want new salwar kameez or chudidar or sari, whether she has or not trunk full of sarees. IF any husband dare to ask the question “You have so many dresses and sarees, why do not you wear one of them?” Wife reply is a huge one “What other people visit in the party think of your status” Mrs Maharana you wear same saree in Samar’s Marriage.

This is a untold story because all know that Husband dominate their wife, but by going through this story, we believe your mindset already in a new shape.

Online shopping is a great help for all existing and aspiring husbands, because you can at least sit or stand at your home. You can help her to choose best cotton sarees or dresses or gifts. You can gift her small gifts from the Online Stores in India in regular intervals, so that she will not call you for shopping during weekend, which may miss your cricket match, or get together with friends or chatting with
