Monica's Roce Ceremony

Monica’s Roce Ceremony

Monica’s Roce Ceremony was an auspicious day for her as it was a new beginning.

Goans and Mangaloreans have prewedding events called “Roce” just like the Paani ceremony

In this ceremony the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be is drenched in milk.

Coconut juice and paste of turmeric are applied on the boy’s or the girl’s hands and face. This signifies the last bath that the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be will be taking in their bachelorhood/spinsterhood.

The Roce ceremony is he beginning of the wedding celebrations. Both, the bride-to-be and the groom-to-be have to undergo this ritual in their respective homes and its celebrated with close family and friends.

East Indian Paani Ceremony

East Indian Paani Ceremony

East Indians (Maharashtrian Catholics) conduct a ceremony called East Indian Paani ceremony or ‘umbrache paani’.

In this ceremony all those attending go in a procession around the local village area singing and dancing to draw water from the well to bathe the bride-to-be or groom-to-be

Since there are no wells left in Mumbai, people go to one of their relative or friend’s house to bring water in a huge vessel.

The groom-to-be is taken around the village under an umbrella and welcomed back home with sweets.
