Kundapur, October 13: Indian culture and tradition is unique in its own way. Due to modernisation, the traditional life is losing its significance.
At Mangalya Mandira in Kota, recently a grand traditional wedding of the son of the honorary president of the Brahmin’s association Uppunda Narayana viadhya and Mrs Seetha Laxmi couple Mr Gururaj and Ms Gauthami took place in which the bride groom was carried in a decorated “Pallakki” procession which mesmerized our rich culture.
This wedding comprised the attires of the coastal Karnataka style and the bride groom was carried in decorated “Pallakki” where as the bride was carried in “Manchal” and the bride grooms father was taken in a chariot drawn by white horse from Shree Amrutheshwari temple in Kota to Mangalya Mandir through the highway. Thousands of citizens witnessed this grand procession.
This grand procession comprised all the crew which could be observed in a cultural fair which was in practise over the past 50 decades.
The guests who had participated in this wedding ceremony, by passers and the publics were also enthralled gazing this scene and captured pictures and videos as well.
In the olden days, the kings and rulers in order to flaunt their richness especially during the religious events were carrying on the rituals according to the culture and tradition. But in the modern days, with globalization and modernisation and also lack of proper education from our elders, the young generation has failed to follow their culture and tradition.
With regard to this, the effort of Uppunda Laxminarayana Vaidhya to showcase our ancient tradition during their grand wedding at the remote area is really laudable.
