Event or and Marriage Traditional/Folk games of Garhwal, Kumaon and Haridwar part- 2

                          Narration: Bhishma Kukreti (Folk Literature Research Scholar)

         This game is really a mental game and creates lot of fun among marriage party from bride and groom side.
             When groom marriage party enters the village of bride, Pundit and bride‘s father greet the groom marriage party by performing rituals. After completion of welcoming ritual performances the groom is supposed to enter into village. However, the young girls of village ask the groom the entry fees. The groom‘s friends start entry fees by lowest bid and definitely girls deny the lowest bidding. Slowly, bidding goes up and up. Girls and boys from bride side and boys and girls from groom side enjoy the bidding and negotiation. Usually the negation or bidding held at least for half an hour. At the end a sum of entry fees is fixed and groom party offer the fixed payment to girls. It this game, just mental negotiation and funny remarks from both the sides are the ingredients of enjoyment and joy.
