Artist's Description

North Indian Hindu wedding rituals involve the bride wearing dozens of red and cream ivory bangles adorning her wrists. These set of bangles in ivory, lac or plastic with intricate inlay work painted or engraved on it are adorned on the bride’s wrist are known as “Chuda”.

A day or two before the actual wedding an auspicious day is selected by the family priest for the “Chuda” ceremony. The bride’s maternal uncle (mother’s brother) gets these bangles for the bride. The set of “Chuda” is shown to the bride just before the ceremony. Everyone present during this ritual touches the bangles and offers their good wishes and blessings.

Wearing the “Chuda” is absolutely necessary for every Indian bride in north India. The time-period of wearing this chuda also varies from family to family but it must be worn for atleast 45 days. Some wear it even for a year.
