Deceased bride and groom who died 30yrs ago tie the knot in India according to traditions of Dakshina Kannada

A deceased groom and bride who died 30yrs ago tie the knot in front of their families in India as reported by a guest who attended the wedding. 

The tradition is an age long norm among some Indians. It is usually meant for children who died at childbirth and are usually married off to another child who was also deceased at childbirth.

Arun who attended the wedding wrote:

"I'm attending a marriage today. You might ask why it deserve a tweet. Well groom is dead actually. And bride is dead too. Like about 30 years ago.

And their marriage is today. For those who are not accustomed to traditions of Dakshina Kannada this might sound funny. But (contd). ..its a serious tradition here. For those who died in child birth, they are usually married off to another child who is deceased during the child birth. All the customs happen just like any marriage. Two families will go to each other's house for the engagement(contd).

", there will be marriage procession and finally tieing the knots. If you are wondering its easy to fix this marriage, hear me out. Recently groom family rejected a bride because bride was few year elder to the groom!
Anyway I find these customs beautiful. I reached a bit late and missed the procession. Marriage function already started. First groom brings the 'Dhare Saree' which should be worn by the bride. They also give enough time for the bride to get dressed! 

"While bride getting ready groom is already waiting. Isn't that always a thing? Bride and groom do the 'Saptapadhi' 7 rounds before sit for the marriage. And finally bride and groom take their place. Though they are dead, dont think that atmosphere will be like the funeral!! Its not. Its as jovial as any other marriage. Everyone cracking jokes and keep the mood high. Its a celebration of marriage. Kids and unmarried people are not allowed to witness the marriage."
