So finally the most awaited part is here, Sidnaaz marriage. I tried to show all the rituals of marriage in my best way. Hope the update will be up to your mark.
Again a long update.
Try to do inline comments.
Sid, the groom was dressed up in ivory sherwani with a pale pink stole that matched with Sana’s lehenga. He was looking most handsome groom in his attire. He was standing in front of a huge mirror and his stylist was setting his stole. The hot and charming smile wasn’t leaving his face. Butterflies were flying in his stomach because of the excitement of getting married. After a few hours, Sana would be called his wife. He had waited for this day a lot and finally, that day arrived. He was going crazy with happiness. Anybody could say by seeing his face that how much happy and excited he was. And why he wouldn’t be excited? After all his dream was getting fulfilled. He was marrying the girl whom he had seen in his dreams since teenage. Sana was exactly the same as the princess of his dream. Her heart and her soul was beautiful and pure like crystal.
“I should check Sana. I hope she is fine.” He thought about Sana’s bad condition and smiled vanished from his face, his lips curved down. The doctor had told him that she would get completely fine within a few hours but he was still worried about her. He wanted to see her completely fine in front of his eyes.
He stepped out of his room to meet her. On the way to her room, he started to wonder how beautiful she would be looking in bridal look. Again a broad smile appeared on his face by only imagining her in bridal look.
Opening the door he walked inside, having a broad smile on his face. He was all set to see his beautiful bride but his smile vanished away from his face when he found the room empty. He got hell worried for her. He checked the washroom and dressing room but she was nowhere. He thought about the last night that how she got kidnapped and only the thought of losing her again frightened him. “Where are you, angel ?” His mind was asking only this question.
“Sid, are you finding your would-be wife ?” He was just about to call Sana but stopped when he heard Mahi’s voice from behind. He turned around and she strolled toward him, having a smile on her face. Sid was looking at her confusingly. Mahi was looking as always beautiful in the designer lehenga.
“Bhabhi, Where is Sana? Do you know? Is, Is she fine ?” He started asking lots of questions from Mahi worriedly and Mahi was just smiling, seeing his care towards Sana.
“Bhabhi, say something.” He asked again concernedly, putting his hand on her shoulder.
“Sid don’t worry. She is absolutely fine.” He finally sighed, listening to Mahi ‘s words. But now the question was that where she was.
“Sid, she is getting ready in a different room because mom said, you can’t meet her before marriage,” Mahi told him and Sid made sad pout like a small baby who didn’t get his favourite toffee.
“So adorable Deverji.” Mahi chuckled and spoke pulling his cheeks. He laughed cutely.
“But, Bhabhi, I want to see her. I am worried about her. Please tell me, where is she ?” Sid spoke sweetly, holding Mahi’s hand. He was trying his best to convince his bhabhi with sweetness. Mahi was just smiling, seeing his acts.
“Bhaiya why are you giving excuses. Say directly that you can’t wait to see bhabhi in wedding attire.” Cabir teased Sid, entering inside the room. Sid glared at him while Mahi chuckled, turning toward Cabir.
“Bhabhi did I say something wrong ?” Cabir asked from Mahi like an innocent baby. Mahi nodded her head in no, having a smile on her face while Sid shook his head.
“Look, Cabir, It’s just that I am worried for Sana that’s why I want to see her. So cut the crap and tell me where is Sana.” Sid said getting irritated with his teasing. He just wanted to see Sana fine at that time. Mahi and Cabir both stared at him.
“Bhaiya.. Do you really think that I am gonna tell you? Bhaiyaji wait for some time.. kyuki sabar ka fal meetha meetha aur bhut pyaar pyaar bhi hota hai. ( Because the fruit of patience is sweet and lovable.)” Cabir again dared to tease Sid and this rose Sid’s anger. Sid was just about to shout on him but Mahi came in between them.
“Sid, we can’t tell you. This is mom’s order to let you not meet Sana. You have to wait. Now you can only see her in the mandap. It’s just a matter of a few minutes. And she is absolutely fine, trust me.” Sid opened his mouth to shout on Cabir but before that Mahi spoke, coming in between them and Sid closed his mouth, listening to her words. Her words gave him little relief. Sid looked at Cabir and he showed him his tongue.
On the other side, Sana was sitting on the chair in front of a huge mirror. She was looking breathtakingly beautiful in gorgeous pale pink silk lehenga. Her hair was tied up in a huge bun. She wore traditional jewellery which wasn’t only enhancing the beauty of her attire but it was taking her beauty to another level. She wore the golden colour maang tikka on the centre of her forehead with a beautiful diamond necklace and earrings. She also wore Nath (nose ring), It represents a bride’s virginity, where it is believed that a woman is no longer a virgin once her groom takes off her nath on the wedding night. She wore chooda, ivory and red colour bangles on her wrist and Kalire which were tied to her bangles, these are small golden trinkets which serves as the blessing to a bride. Each and every piece of jewellery was enhancing her beauty. Especially her glowing face was increasing her beauty and making her look more beautiful.
Her eyes were on the floor and she was blushing, thinking about how Sid changed her clothes a few hours ago. She was nervous, excited and a little bit sad too because she was worried about her father. After her marriage, he would get alone in the house. She wanted to hug him tightly and never wanted to live him. Lots of things were going in her mind which was making her sad, nervous but whenever her mind was thinking about her soon to be hubby, she was smiling to the fullest, forgetting about her all worries.
She was feeling blessed to get the life partner like Sid but scared too because of the few questions which were going in her mind. Would she ever trust him completely? Would she able to love him the way he loved her? Did she deserve him? She started to trust Sid a lot in one month and she got to know that he truly loved her but because of her past, still, she had a doubt in her mind that one day he would also leave her like Arjun had left her after getting bored from her. Her doubt made her always sad and scared. She was now afraid to lose him because she loved him a lot. More than the love she respected him. She adored him.
Everybody was coming and complimenting her. Her father walked inside the room where she was sitting after getting ready. She looked at him through the mirror and her eyes became moist. He stood behind her and both smiled, looking at each other through the mirror. He leaned down and kissed her head, giving her blessings. Sana closed her eyes in response, a few drops of tear dropped down her cheeks. Her father rested his face on her shoulder and touched his face with her. Sana smiled, putting her hand on his face and having tears in her eyes. They both didn’t say a word, just keep staring at each other through the mirror. Sana was remembering each and every moment which she had spent with her father. They were the best moments of her life. Her father always fulfilled her each and every wish. He took care of her like a father and mother both.
After a few minutes, videographer and photographer walked inside to catch the last few moments of Sana with his father before marriage. They introduced them to Sana and Ram. After clicking their beautiful photos, they asked Ram to say a few words about her daughter for the video. Ram happily got ready for this.
“She is my little princess. I never thought that I would ever able to love someone more than my wife but she proved me wrong. She took my heart away with her toothless smile at the very first moment when I saw her.” Ram was saying still standing behind Sana. With his words, he was going back to old memories. Sana was just smiling, looking at him through the mirror.
“She is the best gift given by god to me. Her heart and her soul is pure like her mother. She has always taken care of me like my mother. She has never made me feel like I am alone. She has always made me feel proud and I know in future also she will make me feel proud. She became my support system and the reason for my life. She made me do the things which I never wanted to do but I enjoyed those things doing with her, I have enjoyed every moment which I have spent with her. She is not only my daughter, she is my everything.” His father spoke each and every word through the core of his heart and in the end, he covered her with dupatta. He again placed a kiss on her head and then both looked at each other.
“Sid is our cutest and innocent son. His heart is pure like a baby. He is caring. He never talked to us in a loud voice. He never disrespected us.”
“He is our most obedient kid. We both are really proud of him and happy for him that he found a girl like Sana. She is completely like him. We just want to bless both of them with lots of happiness.” Neyonika and Raj said about their son for the video.
Mahi walked inside her room and she smiled, seeing the way Jay was applying lipstick on his princess’s lips. Muskan was standing on the bed and he was standing in front of her on the floor. She was wearing a beautiful pink and green colour lehenga. She was looking pretty in her outfit.
“Daddy ki princess, if you keep talking like this then how daddy will apply lipstick on your lips,” Jay spoke, raising his eyebrows because she was talking non-stop as always in her babyish language. Even she was not getting quiet when her father was applying lipstick. Mahi chuckled, walking toward them.
“Jay give this to me and get ready. Let me remind you, today is your brother’s marriage.” Mahi scolded him, snatching the lipstick from Jay’s hand. Jay was about to say something, turning his face toward her but he froze on his place when his eyes fell on his gorgeous wife. He kept staring at her without even blinking his eyes.
“Jay, go,” Mahi said loudly, jerking his shoulder. He shook her head, coming on the earth back.
“But first I want to apply lipstick on my princess’s lips,” Jay said like a stubborn kid and tried to snatch the lipstick from Mahi’s hand but she hid it behind her back before he could able to take it. Mahi knew that he didn’t want to leave Muskan that’s why he was not even going to change his clothes.
“Mahi, give the lipstick to me.” Jay frowned and shouted, gritting his teeth. He moved his hand forward to take lipstick from behind her back but Mahi nodded her head in no, jerking his hand away. Muskan was giggling cutely, covering her mouth with her palms. She was enjoying the fight of her mumma and daddy a lot.
“Daddy Mumma biltul thik boli hai. Aap bhi leady hojao. Fill, fil aap , mumma aul must, del sali selfies lenge. Jaldi jao daddy. (Daddy mumma is saying absolutely right. You also get ready. Then we will click lots of selfies. Go fast.)” Muskan said in her cute language, interrupting their fight like she used to interrupt their romance. Now she also became their fight breaker with their romance breaker.
Jay couldn’t say no to his little princess. “Okay, my bacha.” He said lovingly, cupping her face and placed a soft kiss on her forehead. Mahi smiled looking at them.
“Mahi don’t leave Muskan for even a single second. I am just coming within a few minutes. Please take care of her.” Jay said worriedly, looking at Mahi and his one hand was still caressing Muskan’s soft and chubby cheek. He was even afraid to leave his daughter for a few minutes with her mother also. The incident affected him a lot. Mahi nodded her head in yes blankly but she was worried for him because he was not behaving normally with her. After that, he went to the dressing room.
Sidnaaz were getting desperate to see each other. The wait was killing both of them. Sid was roaming in his room restlessly. It was getting difficult for him to even spend a few minutes. On the other side, Sana was also getting desperate to meet his groom. Everyone was complimenting her but she was waiting to listen to the compliment of one person who was Sidharth Shukla. Sometimes she was smiling, seeing herself in the mirror, sometimes she was blushing, seeing her dark Mehendi and sometimes she was becoming like a red tomato, thinking that how he undressed her and made her crazy with his soft kisses a few hours ago.
Mahi and jay were taking selfies with their princess. They were standing on the floor and Muskan was standing on the bed. He encircled his one hand around her daughter from behind and he encircled his other hand around Mahi’s bare waist. Mahi was just about to take the selfie but she stopped and became shocked because suddenly he pulled her closer to himself. His hand reached to her stomach and started rubbing her bare stomach. Mahi looked at him and her eyes pleaded him to stop because his touch and their proximity were driving her crazy. But he didn’t stop, he kept rubbing her belly softly.
“Mumma selfie lo na. Ka hua aapko ?aap selfie ko ni lhi ?” (Mumma take the selfie. What happened to you? Why are you not taking selfies ?)” Muskan shouted, bringing Mahi on the earth back because she had got lost in his touch completely. Mahi again looked at Jay with pleading eyes. He just smirked, continuing his work and she gave him angry glares. She clicked a few selfies while Jay’s hands continued their work on her belly.
After their selfie session, Videographer came to make the video of them. They were making the video of each and every family and asking them to say a few words about the bride and groom.
“Sid is my innocent brother. He is a gem. I must say that Sana is very lucky to have my brother. He is one in millions.” Jay said happily.
“Jay, will you stop only praising your brother?”Mahi complained, hitting his biceps.
“Even our Sid is also not less lucky to have Sana. Sana is the sweetest person I have ever met. Both are like made for each other. I am happy for Sid because he got what he deserved. I just want to wish them a happy married life.” Mahi ended her speech with a broad smile. All this while Muskan who was in her daddy’s arms, she was making cute faces and playing with her hair and sometimes playing with the dupatta of her lehenga. Then they asked her also to speak a few lines for her chacha and Chachi.
“Mele chachu sabse best hai. Voh mujhe kabhi apne phone mein game khelne se mana nhi kalte aul.. voh mele liye khubh sali chocolate and toys late hai. Voh mujhe pyaali pyaali kahani bhi sunate hai. Voh… mujhe.. bsh itna hi.
(My chachu is best. He never stops me from playing game in his phone and he brings chocolates and toys for me. He tells me beautiful stories and he… it’s enough.)” She made everybody laugh loud with her last line. She said the last line, hiding her face in his father chest. Jay gently caressed her hair and then kissed them. Mahi was just smiling happily, looking at them.
“Ale Loko uncle mein chachi ke bale mein toh batana bhul hi gya. (Wait Uncle , I forgot to tell about Chachi.)” She said to videographer in her cute language , moving her face toward them. Again she made everybody laugh.
“Chachi.. bhut jada sweet hai. Voh bhi mele liye del sali chocolates lati hai. Mele sath khelti bhi hai khub sala aur voh mele dleams mein bhi ati hai. (Chachi is so sweet. She also brings lots of chocolates for me. She plays with me and she comes in my dreams also.)” she was making them laugh a lot with her words. Mahi pulled her cheeks and kissed her forehead.
The Mandap was set up in the middle of mountains of Swaziland. The theme of Mandap was pink and cream. The four pillars were decorated with the garland of pink roses and these pillars symbolising the parents who worked hard to raise their children. The mandap was decorated beautifully with rose flowers. The path was also covered with pink roses. The view of the mountain was enhancing the beauty of Mandap. The priest who was sitting there asked someone to bring groom first. In the centre of the mandap, the sacred fire was placed.
Now Sid was waiting to see his bride, sitting at the Mandap from few minutes. Sid was just waiting for the time when the priest would call the bride. Cabir was constantly teasing him, sitting beside him. Sid was giving angry glares to Cabir. He was also glaring at the priest who was wasting time in reciting hymns and not calling Sana. He smiled happily when finally priest asked somebody to call the bride. His face brightened up, listening to this like a kid got his favourite chocolate. This didn’t get unnoticed by Cabir.
“It’s good that Pandit Ji called the bride or else bhai plan was to kill pandit Ji with his looks,” Cabir whispered in Mukti’s ear who was sitting behind Sid and both laughed loudly. Sid just shook his head in disbelief.
His heart skipped beating for a moment when finally his eyes fell on his angel who was looking not less than the fairy. She was coming toward him, walking on the path of pink roses. Her father was also coming with her, holding her shoulders. Everyone got disappeared from his eyesights, only his eyes could see the most beautiful bride. He got mesmerised, seeing her beauty. Her glowing face and a broad smile on her face was giving peace to his heart. She was looking more beautiful than his imagination in the bridal attire. The pink lehenga and the traditional jewellery were suiting her perfectly. The bridal dress and jewellery were not enhancing her beauty rather she was enhancing the beauty of jewellery and bridal dress. She looked at him, smiling broadly and blushed, looking down when she found him staring at her without even blinking his eyes. Her beauty was doing magic on him that he completely got lost in her. As Sana reached at Mandap, he stood up instantly, his eyes were still looking at her face.
“You made me speechless. I don’t have words to express how much beautiful you are looking at this time and what you are doing to me at this time with your beauty. Just one word, perfect. And if I send your photo in heaven, so many angels will hide their face in shame. You are looking divine, Sana.”He whispered while his hand stroke her face softly. Both of them were looking deeply into each other eyes. Their eyes were talking to each other. She felt more beautiful with his compliment. He didn’t leave any chance to praise his angel.
He held her hand still looking at her and kissed her knuckles, forgetting about how many eyes were seeing them at that time. A shiver ran down her spine when his lips touched her skin. She felt a little shy because everybody was staring at them. She blushed and her eyelashes moved down. The people who were presented there, they were also getting mesmerised seeing the beautiful couple.
Mukti handover the floral garlands to Sidnaaz.
Sid bowed down his head like a true gentleman in front of her, making her work easy. She couldn’t stop herself from smiling with extreme happiness. The man who was standing in front of her and the man with whom she was tying the knot, that man does not leave any single chance to make her speechless with his actions and gestures. He was the only reason for her happiness. She happily pulled the garland down his head. They passed each other a winsome and beautiful smile. After that Sana bowed down her head. He wore garland around her neck. Then he set her dupatta properly. The exchange of floral garlands expresses the desire of the couple to marry each other.
After that, he couldn’t able to control himself from kissing the forehead of his beautiful wife. His hands cupped her face and then he gently kissed her forehead. She closed her eyes in response to feeling the touch of his lips on her skin. His kisses were blissful for her. They again passed each other smile. Her smile on her beautiful face was like stars around the moon for him.
Then they both settled down in the Mandap beside each other for further rituals in the front of holy fire. The priest started to recite hymns. Family members were sitting in the Mandap while other guests were sitting on the chairs which were kept in front of Mandap. Sidnaaz were sometimes looking down and sometimes looking at each other. The smile was not leaving their faces because of the happiness of getting married.
Sid was not able to believe that he was finally getting married to the girl who was his dream. His happiness was clearly visible on his face. On the other side, Sana had never thought that she would be so happy on her marriage day. Sid made her happy and changed her with his true and selfless love. She was feeling so blessed to have him in his life. Her beautiful smile was proof that how much happy she was on her very special day.
Few minutes passed away and then priest called Sana’s father for Kanyadaan. The moment the father gives the bride away is known as the kanyadaan. Ram and Sana passed each other smile when he knelt down on his knees behind them. He took Sana and Sid hand in his hands. Then he placed his daughter’s hand into his son in-law’s hand as a gesture of giving his precious gift of God, his daughter to him by trusting him that he will take care of her daughter properly and always keep her happy. Then he poured the sacred water on Sana’s hand, which flowed through her fingers and into the hand of Sid. Sana was controlling her tears difficultly at that time and her eyes were just looking at her father. It was a really emotional moment for them.
Then the priest asked Sid to put his hand on Sana’s shoulder, which symbolizes him taking responsibility for her wellbeing. Their fates now linked together, the bride is no longer a part of her father’s household and is accepted into the groom’s family. He did what Priest said, he placed his free hand on her shoulder. Sana looked at him instantly when his hand touched her shoulder. He gave him a smile and she too gave him a small smile.
Then Priest asked them to stand up for taking sath phere (seven vows.) Everybody also stood up with with them. Muskan was all the time sitting in her father lap and asking so many unlimited questions related to whatever was happening in front of her eyes. Everything was new and exciting for her. “Hum khale ku ho rhai hai daddy ? (Why are we standing up daddy?” Her next came up immediately as he stood up, picking her in his arms.
“Your chuchu and chachi will walk around the fire and we will shower flowers on them,” Jay answered her sweetly and she nodded her, smiling cutely.
Mukti tied Sana’s dupatta with Sid’s stall. It symbolize the union of the souls. The priest asked them to repeat the words of him with every vow. They both nodded their head happily. Sid entwined his hand with her hand before starting the vows and both looked into each other eyes with so much of love. Then they started to take vows of marriage, walking around the sacred fire, holding each other. Everybody started to shower rose flowers on them. Muskan also throwing flowers on them happily. She was giggling and enjoying a lot.
Sid: You will offer me food and be helpful in every way. I will cherish you and provide welfare and happiness for you and our children.
Sana: I am responsible for the home and all household responsibilities
Sid: Together we will protect our house and children.
Sana: I will be by your side as your courage and strength. I will rejoice in your happiness. In return, you will love me solely.
Sid: May we grow wealthy and prosperous and strive for the education of our children. May our children live long.
Sana: I will love you solely for the rest of my life, as you are my husband. Every other man in my life will be secondary. I vow to remain chaste.
Sid: You have brought sacredness into my life, and have completed me. May we be blessed with noble and obedient children.
Sana: I will shower you with joy, from head to toe. I will strive to please you in every way I can.
Sid: You are my best friend and well-wisher. You have come into my life, enriching it. God bless you.
Sana: I promise to love and cherish you for as long as I live. Your happiness is my happiness, and your sorrow is my sorrow. I will trust and honour you and will strive to fulfil all your wishes.
Sid: May you be filled with joy and peace.
Sana: I will always be by your side.
Sid: We are now husband and wife, and are one. You are mine and I am yours for eternity.
Sana: As God is witness, I am now your wife. We will love, honour and cherish each other forever.
They didn’t just repeat the words after the priest. They took each and every vow through the core of their heart. They really meant what they said while taking vows. They made seven promises to each other in the witness of their parents and almighty. Sana decided that after this, she would only think about Sid and his family which would be her too, she would always think about them before herself. They would always remain her first priority. She would not do anything, going against them. She would always support and respect Sid and give herself completely to him. She would also fulfil every duty of a wife and daughter in law with her heart and soul.
Then the priest asked Sid to fill her hairline with the sindoor (red colour powder.) which symbolizes her new status as a married woman. Sid took a pinch of it in between his two fingers and thumb from the small box which Mukti was holding. From his free hand, he sided her mangtika and moved his hand forward to apply sindoor on the middle of her hair. Both were looking into each other eyes lovingly. He applied the indoor there and in response she closed her eyes, having a content smile on her face. Then both again looked at each other. Sid cupped her face and pulled it toward himself and Sana breath became heavy with their closeness. After looking into her eyes deeply, he kissed on her mangtika lovingly. She again closed her eyes, feeling happy and content.
After that Mukti gave the mangalsutra to Sid. The mangalsutra is a cord with two gold pendants and is tied by the groom to symbolize the bonding of the two souls for 100 years. This necklace lets others know that the bride is married. Sid opened the necklace and moved his hands forward to tie it around her neck, looking at her. Sid was so close to Sana when he was tying the necklace. Their proximity was driving her crazy. She could feel his hot breath on her face. Her heart was beating rapidly. She was sure that Sid was taking more time intentionally because she could see a smirk on his face.
“You both are husband and wife from now.” The priest declared them husband and wife and Sidnaaz smiled broadly. “Husband, wife, ” Both whispered, looking at each other. They were getting fresh feelings after marriage. They now became legally husband and wife. Finally, Sid biggest dream came true. She became his. Now he would not have to find reasons to meet Sana and to spend time with her. She would be with him 24 hours in his home. Finally, Sidnaaz got tied by the strongest bond which was marriage.
To be continued…
