Look out there! Newlywed bride steps out softly from wedding coach.
Tradition expects the bride to step on lid on the huge pot.
Would she do? Before entering in her own home to-be then.

There is a marriage tradition in some of the Asian countries. A huge pot filled with grains is put at the threshold of the Groom’s house. The newly-wed bride has to step on the lid of the pot to enter her home-to-be.
In India, the tradition is generally practiced in all Hindu marriages.
