Mothitram Thedurathu

Mothitram Thedurathu yet another interesting traditional game played by bride and groom in marriages. This game is played in traditional marriages just to have fun and to get an understanding between the Bride and Groom.

How to Play:

This game is played only after the marriage that is after tying the Knot. A bucket of water with turmeric powder (Manjal) mixed in it, is placed in front of the Bride and Groom and then a relative is asked to put a ring in the bucket and whirl the water. While the water with the ring whirls, the Bride and Groom are asked to get the ring, since there is only one ring in the bucket it will either go to the hands of Bride or the Groom. They do this for three times. To add more fun the relative will not put the ring in the bucket for one instance. All the relatives gather around the Bride and groom and make fun of them by commenting and in other ways.

This game is played to bring understanding and sacrifice between each other on the first day in front of their relatives
