To a new beginning

Marriages come in different shapes and sizes, and rituals, and colors, and people, and... Well, it is a never ending and. But every marriage has some auspicious moments. To one of these... the boron dala. It is an integral part of the Bengali wedding. Generally, the mother or an elder female member of the bride/groom uses the boron dala to bless their respective participants (pardon my usage of the word participant here but marriage is kind of the life-long game, isn't it?) and to ward off any evil that may befall the holy marriage.
