            • #7

              NALANGU: After 3 p.m. on wedding day in a good auspicious time that is ( without rahu kalam or yamakandam time) Nalangu wil be performed. In olden days at the age of 15 for groom and at the age of 10 for bride they will do marriage. They will perform nalangu in the evening. But now a days this nalangu is not at all necessary.
              In olden days the bride will not sit , and it will go away for playing. So it was necessary to sit on father's lap for mangalya dharanam. Our sastras are not saying that the bride should sit on her father's lap. The bride should sit on a paddy bag. that is what our sastras says. so now a days it is enough if the bride sits on a paddy bag. now you can put a small paddy bag on a plastic chair and the bride can sit on the paady bag on the chair.

              In olden days there was no registrar office.No education for ladies. So all relatives and friends are requested to attend the mariage to tell witness in the court if the boy says i have not at all married you. The bride's party has to give them full meals, dhoties, and sarees and also sweets and savory for them to use them during their return to their houses, On those days there was no transport facility.On those days the bride and groom can see each other only at the time of maalai matruthal.

              On those days there was no family planning operation or copper T, nirodh etc. so they will go on ksethraadanam to temples after 40 years of age.

              No janavasam is necesarry now. we can finish the marriage starting from kasi yathra and ending in pravesa homam, nandhi , aasirvadham.
              in one day. Shanthy muhurtham can be done on the groom's house on wedding day. The kalyana mandapam may be vacated on the night of wedding about 10 P.M.

              You can give more money to the couple to buy gold or plot or house. This is my opinion. now a days you are including reception and not excluding the unwanted areas..

              Mix chunnam and turmeric poeder with water and make a paste. This is called nalangu paste which will be applied on the legs. Groom's sister will buy one vilayaadal saree and hand it over to the bride. the bride will wear it during nalangu time. the bride must request the groom to come for nalangu function.

              The bride's family must invite the groom's family to attend and to join in this function. On The pattu pai the bride and groom will sit facing each other and also facing east and west direction. required things for this: raw rice, dhall, salt,chandanam,kumkumam, manjal podi, nalangu mixture; 2 coconutsapplied with manjal thool and having the kudimi removed. 12 sutta appalam. betel; betel nut; fruits; flowers; mirror, comb;

              Some very old lady will order the couple in the order what should be done during nalangu. The groom will be in the sitting position and the bride in the standing position the bride will mark with chandanam on the groom's forehead, neck, and on both the hands. apply kumkumam on his forehead. then apply nalangu mixture on his legs.

              then the bride will comb the hair of the groom and will show the back side of the mirror and then the front side of the mirror. Then some rice will be given to the bride and some dhall to the groom . The bride will ask the groom that i will give you rice and you please give me some dhall. some dhall and rice will be exchanged and the bride mixing the rice and dhall together and with the right hand turn round and round on the groom's head and with the left hand 3 sutru anti clockwise and throw away the mixture behind his head.

              Then again for the second time it will be repeated.. then the bride will only ask the groom i am giving you salt and in turn you please give me dhall. and i will cook and serve you meals. but there is no exchange of salt. Then the bride will take 2 sutta applam one on each hand and 3 times sutral clockwise withe right hand and 3 times anti clock wise withe left hand and crash it into pieces behind the groom. like this she has to do for 3 times. then she will sit down on her place.

              Now the groom's turn is begining. In the sitting posture the groom should apply chandanam and kumkumam and combing her hair and showing the mirror. then dhall and rice 3 times sutral; then appalam 3 times sutral;

              THen coconut uruttal and potti on it; the coconut uruttal will go on between the groom and bride and some body will say 1, 2, 3, and the coconut must be catched very quickly by the groom or bride. the bride can use both the hands but the groom must use only one hand.

              Then betel will be placed in between them and they must catch it in full good condition. Then the bride will give fruits, flowers,thaamboolam to the groom placed in a tray and will sing songs. and the groom must sing a song and will return the tray. then the bride will sit on the right side of the groom.

              Then pachai valipathu: mixture of gingilly oil and kumkumam will be prepared and placed in a kinnam. This paste will be applied on the back, neck, shoulders and on the chin. as dhristy kalippathu. this will be done in odd number of people; mother, athai, sister, maami and anni from both parties will do this. then haarathy will be taken and this function comes to a close.

              On those olden days in the evening the groom and bride will sit on the decorated oonjal and all will sing songs. Now a days Reception we are having with cinema songs or carnatic music. invitees who were not able to attend the function in the morning will come now. video taking; gifts giving taking meals and will go with thaamboola m bag..

              If there is shanthy muhurtham on the same night the couple must take only milk and rice and not curd rice. The couple will go to bed in a good lagnam at night.

              SHANTHY MUHURTHAM to be continued.
