Ghadoli (The Ceremonial Water Pot)


Back from Delhi and still recuperating from the ill health. Meanwhile, I thought I will revisit the cultural nuances which we have left behind. The ceremony of Ghadoli, where the Sister-in-Law draws water from the nearby well (it’s only a tap these days) and the bride / groom is required to bathe using this water in the morning before the marriage.

We had reached late for the ceremony at this time, just when the Sister-In-Law was returning after filling up the ceremonial pot. Shot with the Pentax 35mm f2.4, against the light, I had to switch to manual focus as the autofocus did not have sufficient light to focus properly.
