Today- Let's look at the significance of the wedding rituals for Maan and Geet.
HEre is my perspective on it!
You're all invited to the most Hatke wedding this year
Geet- Miss Hoshiyarpur Express-Mishti-shona-No HAnda
Maan-Sir- Dusht Danav-Das Sir wala Raavan-Singh-Khurana
Yes- A wedding- a grand celebration of a bond of Love
Note- I might have missed some significant rituals and ceremonies'apologies..but do add!
The love of Maan and Geet
A beautiful relation shown in a slow progression
From two people who disliked each other- they have come to be two who are enclosed in a world of their own.
We have all seen that journey- rolled our eyes, laughed, cried with them and now we join them as they are joined in matrimony.
Weddings have a special place in our lives because they celebrate two lives coming together and it's a communal celebration.
The title of the show is Geet- Hui Sabse Parayi. She was isolated from society and community..just like Maan was too..she was because of her circumstances, and Maan because he created walls around him.
Now- those walls down- they are in the middle of community and family..in the middle of people and not lost..because they have each other.
I have always seen in weddings- when a couple is sitting together..they are the ones who stick together in the midst of all activity and merry-making..they are the observers- in the middle and yet detached.
Wedding and it's significance for Maan and Geet
Geet and Maan are united in mind and soul. They love each other and grow with each other. They wish to grow together in life. Marriage for them, as Maan says is a journey..a new step in their life- a step towards a beautiful future where they will live TOGETHER..will be seen as TOGETHER..MAan ki Geet and Geet ka Maan.
There is a deep spiritual aspect to their love and marriage adds to it
Of course- one may or may not agree with this but this is a subjective reading
Let's look at a few wedding rituals before THE wedding rituals and what they have meant for Maan and Geet.
Songs are a perfect way of celebrating..singing of their love.
Geet has been the song of Maan's life.
This was shown in a deep personal way as well when Geet alleviated MAan's suffering and reassured him that he'd be a very good father.
Geet told Maan-using the word Papa..she related the child, to the father.
She made them into a family.
And she brought him back from the deep abyss of guilt he was sinking into.
She raised him to Life..and he saw the beauty in her eyes..he saw the love'he saw Life reflected there and he realized it was okay.
He had called her the sunshine of his life.
Sunshine is the life-giving light- and for him- Geet gave him a new life and made him appreciate it.
This was their Sangeet.
Maan wanted to put Haldi on Geet's face first.
You color my life with your love.
You have made my life Technicolor from the monochromatic it was.
I want to color you with my love.
His love brings out the beauty in her.
IT is he that makes her luminous as he can see the beauty- inside and out.
And with that special haldi ritual- he brought out that inner beauty with his love so that when anyone else put haldi on Geet- she was already shining with the inner beauty that Maan's touch had brought out.
Geet brings out the best In him.
Geet touched her MAAN and colored him with her love'the fire of happiness glowed bright and she brought that glow out'it was in his eyes..shining bright..
So- Although Haldi is a ritual that is used to bring out the beauty in both the bride and the groom..Maneet did it by bringing out merely the beautiful glow of their love.
It didn't matter if he wiped it off from Geet's cheek..what he wanted to do had been done.
She tells Maan to keep the color on his cheek because it would continue to remind him of her touch'keep him Maan and not MSK for some time at this happy time- a man just happy 'of course..manisha ke time pe no one can not be happy so'.
It is said that it is to deepen the bond of love an dis a traditional part of weddings'
The darker the mehendi- the better it is seen to be!
Of course- For Maneet- the mehendi is going to be dark! :P
White and Red 'purity with passion..
Of course- Maneet have had a pure passion in their relationship.
A love which is spiritual as well as sensual.
White and Red is the color of the chuda too.
Well..Geet has made some girl friends too haina?
It is said that the girl on whom the kalirein falls is the next in line to be married-AKA-ANNIE here..HAHA
Usually, the male family member of the bride does the kanyadaan'
But in Geet's case'either dadi or annie or the pandit will do it perhaps..
Maybe pinky's dad? Or the adi or romeo..as family representatives?
Anyway- while giving the bride's hand to the groom, a promise is asked of the groom to assist his wife in realizing her dharma,artha,kama'basically spiritual fulfillment in life
She is to be protected by him and she is to be loved by him'just like he will be loved by her and they will grow together to get spiritual fulfillment.
In the presence of the Fire God- these are the seven promises the couple gives to each other
1. To nourish each other.
When Maan made Pasta and Geet was sad-
He says the way I have saved you from all troubles till now- I will also save you from this problem of humger
Maan has ensured Geet had food to eat..LOL
The episode where Maan ensured Geet got food to eat but nakewl gave his raaz away. Geet and Maan ate for the first time together from the same thali
Geet fed Maan chocolate mousse.
Maan has made mushroom omlette for Geet
And so on'
2. To grow together in strength
From the first- Maneet have helped each other grow in strength.
Maan has given important lessons to Geet and inspired her to stand for herself.
Geet has taught Maan to open up to Life and to Love..
They are strong as individuals as well as united.
Maneet personify mutual love and strength
3. Preserve material wealth
Well..Geet got a job as Maan's secretary..
Money hasn't been a part in their life..but as together- now post marriage- Can be shown!
But they have other kinds of wealth- of their moments together and they preserve it to the full!
4. TO share each others' sorrows and joys
They have been together in the sharing of each others' sorrows and have promised to give each other all happiness
In Office during hum-tum
In Outhouse Maan's pain came out in an outburst
Geet and Maan in the dargah scene- are bound in a bond of pain and relief.
Pain with the realization that they are soul-bound. Relief that they have found each other.
In HP Maan shares Geet's pain
And so on'
Maan shared his sadness in the sangeet episode recently
They have found moments to be together-staying together even in the worst of times-being a part of each other..that that thread that binds them tugs at their heart strings when either is in pain
5. To care and be responsible for their children
Maan loved Geet and when they get back together- he promised to take care of her and their baby.
When he felt he failed by choosing Geet and not the baby'he felt guilt ridden and was in anguish..but Geet assured him that he will be a great papa!
Well- we need to be shown this post-marriage :P
6. To be together for lifetimes to come
"zindagi ki har subha tumse shuru ho aur har raat tum se khatam"
Main Stalking Karta and Miss Hoshiyarpur can do anything but stay apart from each other'
No matter what- after wedding, MSK and Geet will remain together- in heart,soul, mind and body.
Physical separation mustn't be for long'provided there's a new track doing the rounds'
7. Soulmates forever..part of a whole..HUM
Maan and Geet have become from You and Me to Hum'and this is a symbolic and holy unification of that HUM.
Their love has welded them together as individuals, made them grow as individuals and now'they are ready to embark on their journey together..as HUM..:)
As a family..with the baby..facing problems TOGETHER; their love helping them withstand all that they face
The mangalsutra and Sindoor
Geet has put the Tabeez around maan's neck already.
MAan will put the mangalsutra on Geet
KBM..he has filled her maang with his blood already..culminating their bond of blood'they are bound by it..have always been shown to be..
Maan and Geet- an intense love story- it's made us cry,made us laugh, made us FEEL what they were going through each moment.
It has made us understand the dilemmas, and the pain, the anger and the joy, the nok-jhoks and the fights, the passion and the tenderness.
Completed by the bond of marriage-
Maan and Geet will emerge stronger- with promises given- some realized and some to be realized'but not broken.
They will face all things together..all joys and all calamities
If msk goes to jail- it will be after this marriage.he will go as Geet ka Maan- stronger..leaving her sad..but as a woman who will fight for her husband's rights!
As being Maan's strength and not his weakness.
Helping each other when they stumble- their relationship after marriage will definitely be filled with moments of all kinds..let's see and travel with them on their journey'post marriage
All these vows need to be realized once more'after marriage..a fulfillment of those promises taken in front of the Fire.
Give their marriage a hatke-feel!
This will give some dynamic to their relationship too- I know marriages are tough and not just a bed of roses'show the struggle..show their journey

Why I think today's turn of events hv potential for future strong storyline is because
Marriage happens and after that MSK is arrested and then how he proves himself innocent and how Geet fights for him -Check
Before marriage,MSK is arrested because Arjun files a complaint..then we see MSK taking 12 day ka promise as per article and he will challenge that he will b out of this mess in 12 days time to marry his Gith-Check
Errrrrrrr...if I keep logic aside I enjoyed today's episode...I m used to watching so many nonsense shows that I don't really mind logic missing once in a while

I am short on words today. After reading the negativity about today's episode, I had almost decided not to watch but then could not resist so finally did....
