Jobat – Bhil wedding rituals
Words fall short, two eyes less and two ears insufficient when the dance of the children of God is at play. A young groom ties a knot with a coy bride as the whole clan drinks and dances their way to glory…age no bar, gender no bar. Guests bring grains and drinks as a contribution to the occasion and forget about the world, as the thumping beats of the drums resonate with their heartbeats and their feet follow.
Bhil Wedding Dance
The bride, all clad in silver trinklets has been through a journey with her maidens surrounding her, singing songs of goodwill and safety while they also mourn her separation in quite… across the bazaar, to the silversmith’s shop….where she graces up these pieces upon herself ...one by one…just as the beautiful responsibilities she would have to bear in the life ahead.
