From Mom-in-law to Daughter-in-law with love
Traditionally sought and culturally rich, Gharcholas (sarees/odhanies) are a way of welcoming the new bride
into the groom’s home - with respect and affection. Groom’s mother gifts a Gharchola – traditional grid-patterned
, unstitched length of embellished fabric – to the bride. The daughter-in-law drapes it over her head –
as a way of her mother-in-law’s aashirwaad (blessing) - at the time of wedding rituals.
The draping of Odhani/Dupatta on the shoulders and head of a girl is also symbolic of the promise that
comes with the Indian marriage – the promise that post marriage the groom and his family would take care
of the bride – in every way. With this profound gesture, the mom-in-law takes the new bride under her wings!
