Kashmir is the paradise of India. It is valley which constitutes Dal Lake, shikaras and palm trees. The sight of migratory birds in half-frozen lake water does give a very impressive view to the onlookers. Kashmir is the beautiful valley with mountains gracing its magestic backdrops, and refreshing cold air filling the atmosphere. Kashmiri society has many traditions and rituals which have been carried for many ages.
People are very warm, passionate about family, and they believe in brotherhood. Kashmir is also famous for its rich food and culture. In Kashmiri society, the marriage is regarded a pious relationship between a man and a woman.
Kashmiris believe in caste system. When a search for the prospective partner is to be conducted, it passes from mouth to mouth that a certain person is interested to marry off his son or daughter. Kundlis or horoscopes which are called 'teknis' play a great role in match making. The compatibility of the couple depends upon the stars. After
this, 'kasamdry' is performed, this is a ceremony which signifies both family's acceptance to the marriage. The family and relatives of the girl and boy gather in a temple in front of a deity and exchange flowers. Often, simple dishes like hot milk with crisp naan are served by the girl's family.

At the groom’s house, the 'bua' or paternal aunt of the boy prepares the special dish called “var” in pure ghee, and garnishes it with almonds. It is then distributed as 'Prasad' to all the relatives and neighbors. The engagement ceremony is fixed where all the relatives and friends of both parties gather and they are served with the kahwa. The
maid of the groom’s family would then take the gifts to the girl’s home. It will include the ring, 'pheran which means a kashmiri outfit, head gear and 'sindoor'. She also carries a sweet dish decorated with almonds in a silver vessel which she herself feeds to the girl attired in the dress which has come from the groom’s side. She is handsomely rewarded for her services. Now it’s the turn of girl’s family to reciprocate the whole process.
