Runwa Bhareen Puri- Swal Khilan/ Feeding Cotton Stuffed Puri to Groom: Amusing Marriage Folk Game of Garhwal, Kumaon and Haridwar

Notes on Traditional Folk Games/Sports from Garhwal, Kumaon and Haridwar (Uttarakhand Folk Games) Part -9 
Event or and Marriage Traditional/Folk games of Garhwal, Kumaon and Haridwar part- 7

                          Narration: Bhishma Kukreti (Folk Literature Research Scholar)

             This was a tactical game played in marriage party. Usually, in past groom party used to reach bride village by evening. The groom party reaches to bride village where groom party is welcomed by villagers. At the time of dinner, the groom marriage party members are dined separately and Pundit, Groom and a couple of groom’s friends are offered dinner separately in respect.  In many cases, in past, the bride villagers used to stuff cotton in Puri/Swal (bread fried in hot oil) specially cooked for groom and his couple of private friends. In many cases the groom starts eating cotton stuffed Puri and the girl villagers then used to tease groom that he is hungry and does not have sense of recognizing cotton stuffed Puri/Swal. If groom party is aware they do not eat such Puri and girl side villagers inspire them to eat such Puri. This is funny folk game.
                   Now days, this custom is seen very rare.
