Going Home, traditional game, Indian wedding
The game of going home is played at the groom`s house.
(Last Updated on : 23/12/2013)
This is a game played at the groom's house. The sisters of the groom block the entrance door as the new bride arrives in her husband's home. Pretending to be helpful they point to a covered heap. With a gilded cover placed over a mound supposedly to enshroud the family deity - and they ask the bride to pay obeisance to it before entering. The bride, ever anxious to oblige, dutifully bows her head. The room of women bursts out laughing. The coverlet is pulled off to reveal a pile of old footwear cleverly arranged in a mound.
The ceremonial worshiping of the shoes does serve a purpose - with the laughter the ice is broken and the new bride suddenly finds a roomful of friends.
