Kiren and Sandeep’s Wedding Celebrations – Part 1 – Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet



Kiren and Sandeep’s wedding celebrations began with their pre-wedding parties – known as the Ladies Sangeet. Both were such fun and involved ladies singing traditional folk songs and lots of dancing and partying for all. Here’s some of our highlight’s from Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet… we’ll post some from Kiren’s tomorrow…





At Sandeep’s Ladies Sangeet he also had his batna ceremony, which involved a yellow turmeric paste being applied to his legs, face, and arms. This is done as an act of cleansing and balance before married life. All the ladies took it in turns to rub this paste onto Sandeep, who sat patiently throughout.













A large part of both sangeet parties involved traditional dance – with sticks and with the Jaggo (a fab coloured hat with candles which folks took turns to wear and dance with) Apparently there is some competition between the Falkirk and the Glasgow sides of the family about whose dancing is better?… we’ll leave it up to you to decide once you’ve seen the highlights from Kiren’s Ladies Sangeet tomorrow…











Look out for Part 2 tomorrow…
