About Sindhis

Sindhis are Indo - Aryan Language speaking Socio Ethnic Group of people originating in Sindh which is a part of Pakistan today. During the partition of India, those Sindhis who were Hindus migrated to India while the Muslim Sindhis remained back in Pakistan.

Mehandi : Various designs of flowers, animals and leaves are made on the hands and the feet of the Bride. After this ceremony, the Bride gets ready for the marriage. When the Groom enters the Brides Home, he puts his Foot over the Brides Feet, signifying he will lead the relationship from now onwards. After this the Grooms feet are washed with milk signifying his welcome in the Brides Home.
