The Hindu Affair 7 of 8

Madhuparka
During the Madupharka, the grooms feet are washed and he is fed honey and milk (honey represents the sweetness in life and yoghurt is the strength). During this time, the brides sisters and cousins steal the grooms shoes, adding mischief and humour to the ceremony. At the end of the day, the groom or best man (as is this case) retrieves the shoes by offering money :)
