Photos: The Engagement!

The engagement party! The Hindu priest first sets the time and date for the wedding according to astrology, then ceremonially settles the agreement between the two fathers, and finally the bride and groom, together on the altar for the first time, garlands and blessings and gifts, and then upstairs for a south Indian thali meal (served on a banana leaf and eaten with the right hand!)
