A video capturing a bride’s emotional entry into her husband’s house on her wedding day has gone viral on social media, sparking discussions about a local custom. The incident, which occurred in Pallassana, Palakkad, shows the bride experiencing an unfortunate mishap during the traditional head knocking ceremony.
In the customary ritual, the heads of the bride and groom touch each other as they enter the groom’s house with their right foot. However, in this particular instance, the ceremony did not proceed as planned. As the bride leaned in for the customary gesture, her head was accidentally struck with considerable force. Overwhelmed by the impact, she was left in tears as she made her way into her husband’s house, holding a lamp.
The marriage between Sachin, a resident of Pallasshana, and Sajla, from Mukkam, Kozhikode, took place, but the unfortunate incident marred the joyous occasion. Sajla, still suffering from pain and swelling in her head, shared her experience of the incident. The video capturing the clash has gained significant attention on social media, igniting a widespread discussion about the local ritual.
According to reports, a relative attending the ceremony unintentionally caused the collision. The force of the impact sent the bride stumbling towards a wall, further intensifying her distress as she entered her husband’s house, feeling separated from her family. Sachin had informed Sajla about the ceremony and assured her that the head knocking would be gentle. However, the bride was unprepared for the strength with which her head was struck.
The viral video has prompted an outpouring of comments and reactions from viewers, who are expressing their concerns about the incident and the associated traditional practice. Many have shared their thoughts on the video, questioning the necessity and safety of such rituals in modern times.
