भारत में यहां अग्नि नहीं पानी को साक्षी मानकर पूरी होती है शादी, जानिए ऐसा क्यों करते हैं ये आदिवासी
India is a country of diversities, here in every state, in every region, in every community, different rituals, weddings and other things are done. However, in the Indian Sanatan tradition, whenever a marriage takes place, the bride and groom take seven rounds considering the fire as a witness, only then the marriage is considered complete. But there is only one place in India where marriages are completed considering water as a witness. Today in this article we will tell you who and where people do this practice.
where does this practice take place
This unique practice takes place in Bastar district of Chhattisgarh, a state in India. A unique tradition is performed by the tribal society here. Actually, tribals have always been worshiping water, forest and land. However, these tribals marry by considering water as a witness because they want to avoid extravagance in the name of marriage. This tradition of these tribals has been going on for several hundred years, not from today.
Why do Sakshis believe in water only?
In fact, the tribal communities who solemnize their marriages by considering water as a witness, come from the Dhurva community and water is very important in this society. For this tribal society, water is like a holy deity who works to give life. The biggest thing is that the water that is used in marriage is a special water. This water belongs to the river Kankeri which flows in Bastar itself. Kankeri river is considered very sacred in the Dhurva community and no auspicious work is considered complete without the water of this river.
strange tradition of pheras
You must have seen that when a boy and a girl get married, both of them also take rounds in that marriage. However, this is not the case here. In the marriage of this area, the whole village takes rounds with the bride and groom. Along with this, nothing is taken or given in the name of dowry in marriages here. If someone tries to break this tradition, then the elders of this society stand against it and those who do so are fined.
