The world is full of weird customs and trends that are almost in a swing every day. Such an instance came in from Rajasthan. A shocking video of an Indian groom breastfed by his mother on his wedding day has been getting shared on various social media platforms.
India has no shortage of bizarre traditions and taboos that persist on a day-to-day basis. Festivals and occasions such as marriage in the country are grand, colourful and vivacious.
Ritual of feeding son with breast milk before marriage
The world never stops to make people stunned and sometimes amazed by its strange wedding traditions and rituals.
The royal state of Rajasthan is steeped in art and culture that reflects the Indian ways of life. The people of Rajasthan celebrate their traditions with great pomp and fervour.
A fascinating yet shocking practice followed in Rajasthan where a mother breastfeeds his son on the day of his marriage. In the video, the man seen dressed as a groom in his wedding attire is with his mother.
For the time being, they are surrounded by guests and the mother is seen lifting her blouse up and reassuring his son’s head forward.
The groom obligates and proceeds to be breastfed.
Explaining the tradition, one of the comments reads that it is one of the traditions, which is still in practice in Rajasthan state, that allows a groom to drink the breast milk of his mother before going to marry a woman.
This tradition mainly signifies the fact that the groom has to do this just to make sure that he does not dare to forget his mother for the woman with whom he is going to get married.
The people of the state are proudly embracing this weird custom as a part of their marriages, as these unreal wedding customs have always been passed down from generation to generation.
In spite of the fact that the video has unsurprisingly shocked the viewers, research has analysed that the queries related to breastfeeding adults are very popular in the country.
