WISE  TRADITIONS

Radha is going to get married today but as per the village tradition; she has to marry a mango tree first.

She ties a red sacred thread to the tree trunk, embraces it, puts her cheek on it, and then proceeded to marry her real husband.

To fight the menace of  dowry system,  villagers of  Dharhara  has made it a tradition to plant ten mango trees with the birth of each girl child so by the time they grow up,  revenue from its fruits are enough for their dowry and wedding expenses and the mango tree acts as the real guardian of the girls.

    • KBC Friday one more man who encourages his village men to plant 101 trees on a girl child’s birth was invited and played with Amitabh Bachchan. His story is also very sad but he is now helping other girls in fulfilling their dreams.
