Knotted String, traditioinal game, Indian wedding
This game predicts the future relationship of the newly wedded couple by observing how quickly they can unknot.
(Last Updated on : 23/12/2013)
In another attempt to predict the future of the couple's married life, the bride is given a knotted string to unwind. She and her husband use one hand each to unravel the knots. The sooner they unravel them, the greater the ease with which they will face life's struggles. The coveted position of the 'knot-tier' is given to the favorite sister of the groom and it is up to her to make it difficult. In certain castes, the bride and the groom are made to wear dry turmeric with a sacred thread knotted around their right hands, which later in the game, are supposed to be untied by each other by their left hands.
