The Marathi Bride

With the pearl-stringed mundavlya tied across her forehead, the traditional nath on her nose, the multilayered jondhaali haar on her neck, and the patlya and bangdya adorning her delicate wrists, the Marathi bride looks truly stunning! As the auspicious chant of the mangalashtak fills the air and the sacred mangalsutra is tied around her neck, the Navari Mulagi's cheeks flush with joy and her eyes sparkle with eager anticipation of the years of marital bliss that lie ahead.
