Photographer's Note

The decorated swing is used in the weddings.
When the couple finally succeed in garlanding each other thrice, they are made to sit together on a swing. Married women from the families give spoonful of milk and banana pieces. They circle rice balls around the couple in circular motions, in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions and fling them away. This rite is believed to prevent evil forces from disrupting the wedding ceremony. The oonjal signifies the ups and downs of life and the bride and groom will face them together.
