Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsConference Presentation


The presentation details on some key rituals surrounding Hindu marriages and the reasonings behind them. Although some of the rituals have been altered over time, the 'modern' Hindu society does not appear to understand the rituals behind the rituals that have deep emotional and scientific meanings. Understanding the meaning behind these precious rituals may reduce divorce/separation rates among married Hindu couples which has been increasing in the past few years.
