Request for sindhoor and toe rings

Brides from Bihar wear ‘Chapa’ a resplendent red saree embellished with intricate silver block print- I came to know about this bridal wear tradition through a good friend in Karachi whose family hails from Bihar. The commitment, the allegiance to keep alive the long standing custom of draping the young brides in that special attire, does not succumb to the Indo-Pak hostility. Through variant routes and coherent arrangements made with the help of relatives, somehow Chapa reaches the bride’s family before the big day and the prized practice, worth every effort is kept up.
