Gulf Today Report
An Indian village organised a wedding of two people who died more than 30 years ago, it looks strange but it is an old custom in some parts of Kerala and Karnataka.
According to local reports the video of the incident, which was published by the Indian YouTuber, Annie Aaron on his Twitter page, received a wide interaction on the social media sites.
The video shows two families in Dakshina Kannada village reviving an old custom in the country, by holding a wedding ceremony for the deceased man and woman.
The people of the village marry someone who was born dead to another person who also died at the time of birth. By doing this they believe that they are honouring the spirit of the dead.
Aaron commented on the occasion, "I'm attending a wedding, you might ask why it's worth tweeting, well, the groom is already dead, and the bride has also died about 30 years ago."
The customs in Dakshina Kannada village are that the wedding is conducted by members of the family of the deceased, and it includes all processions similar to the normal wedding ceremony.
The Indian YouTuber added: “Two families go to each other’s house for the engagement, and there is a marriage procession, and an integrated ceremony.”
The groom's family prepares the wedding dress that the deceased bride will wear.
Aaron ended his speech by saying: "After the wedding ceremony is completed, delicious food is served on banana leaves."
Everyone tried hard to convince the girl, but she said, "The man who did not care about our marriage today, how is he going to take care of me in the future?"
According to local media reports, one Arjun Singh had fixed his daughter Archana's marriage with a man named Shivam. When the ‘baraat’ (marriage procession) arrived at the bride’s house on June 20, the groom was wearing spectacles all the time.
The clip shows the groom, Ravikant Ahirwar, trying to garland his bride, Reena, with guests and relatives cheering them on.
According to the father of the two brides, the priest made the mistake by marrying each girl to the wrong man, because they were wearing a similar red dress with the same headdress, according to the local media.
