                On that time, the bride family had more say than groom family in marriage procession and practice.
          In one engagement, the father of would be bride put a condition before father of groom, “The condition is  that there would be twenty five guests and the maximum age of each guest including music instrument players should not exceed more than twenty five.”
          The father of groom was shocked to know the condition. The girl was beautiful and her father was rich man. The groom’s father did not want to lose the bride. However, the father of groom accepted the condition that the age of each guest will not be over twenty five in the marriage party.
             When groom’s father reached his village he rushed to an old and most knowledgeable person of the village Jogi Ji. Jogi Ji heard the condition of bride’s father and told,” Don’t worry. I shall tell you the trick the  day before marriage procession.”
               Jogi Ji made a wooden box from carpenter. The box was made of two horizontal partitions. There were holes on the base of the wooden box.
  Before marriage procession for bride village from bride house started, Jogi Ji sat into the lower partition of box and on upper portion there were filled with dress as objects (Bardali)  for the bride.  The age of each guest was below twenty five.
        Barat or marriage procession reached to bride village after evening. There was marvelous welcome for the guests.  After breakfast, the bride’s father told to young marriage guests that the marriage is possible only when all twenty five guests consume twenty five goats. The young guests were in great shock. It was just impossible that twenty five young men could consume twenty five goats.
One guest went near the box and told the problem to old Jogi Ji. Jogi Ji told the solution.
          Now, the guests started Pando Dance and Song surrounding camp fire on country yard. The drum players were playing drums with enthusiasm. One goat was killed and roasted on other camp fire. The roasted goat was cut into pieces, was mixed with salt and little bit chilly and meat pieces were distributed among young twenty five persons.  All young boys were dancing and eating roasted goat meat pieces. Twenty five young boys consumed the goat with ease. Then another goat was killed and roasted, and distributed among boys who were dancing too.
      This way by the morning, young boys consumed all twenty five goats without any problem.
        Watching the scenario that all goats are consumed with ease, the bride’s father addressed to all guests, “I am happy that my Samadhi (groom’s father) respects the importance of experienced person.  Definitely, there is an experienced person who suggested you the strategy to consume goats one by one and to dance too. “
            The guests asked to bride’s father,” How did you know that there is an experience person with us.”
      Bride’s father told,” You could not complete my condition without suggestion from an old man. Only experienced person knows that by dancing the boys would feel hungry. Experienced person was aware that if goat was consumed one by one at any point nobody would fill the stomach fully.”
         The young marriage guests showed the old man hiding inside box. Bride’s father was the happiest person by knowing that his daughter’s father in law believed in importance of experience.
                    Immediately bride’s father sent a messenger to call groom’s father from his village. Happily marriage took place.
