Kanyadaan is one of the most vital rituals in Hindu Culture, which is performed in conformity to Vedic scriptures. 'Gift of a girl', the literal meaning of Kanyadaan, signifies the custom in which a girl is gifted by a father to a groom. This ritual is carried out just before the Mangalphere and is considered as a Mahadaan as per the Hindu custom. A dutiful act, Kanyadaan is believed to bring fortune and relieve the parents of bride from all the sins.

Kanyadaan is formed from combination of two words, 'Kanya' and 'Daan' where Kanya means a virgin and Daan means donation. In this, a father hands over his daughter to the groom (considered as Lord Vishnu at the time of marriage). In this emotional ritual, father places the right hand of the daughter in the right hand of the groom and the mother pours holy water on the palms of bride and the groom. Then, the sacred verses are read. The father of the bride asks the groom to promise that him that he would help his daughter in accomplishing three significant goals of life that are:

Dharma  Artha
  • Kama

      Once the verses are read, the beloved daughter is given away by the parents to the groom and she becomes responsibility of the groom and his family. Kanyadaan is pious as well as an emotional affair in which, the father officially gives away his rights and duties towards his daughter to the groom. In case, the father of bride has expired or is not present at the marriage, due to any unavoidable situation then an elderly relative of the bride can perform the deed of Kanyadaan.

       
       
      After today's epi, i'm hopeful that it will be Purvi who will get married to Arjun. but as we all know Ekta won't give us what we want. she'll do the oposite. but  i belive in Arjun's love. TRUE LOVE OVERCOMES EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Manav has agreed to do this for Purvi. i do not think he'll let Ovi marrry arjun. if he allows this, then what kind of father is he?????????????
