The Hindu Affair 2 of 8

I recently covered a very colorful Hindu Wedding for a lovely couple . I will be posting some of the highlights.

Kanya Daan (Entrusting the daughter)
The brides parents joins the hands of the bride to that of the groom as a symbol of their union (hastamelap, joining hands). It is a very emotional time for the parents and signifies that the daughter is given away....a few tears are shed!
