Photographer's Note

I took this shot in a hindu and bengali marriage ceremony. It was the process of binding the hands of the couple which indicates their conjugal life and soul after marriage. 'Hasta' means hand and 'bandhan' means the binding. You can see the both hands is placed on a 'mangal ghat' ( a sacred pot made by clay) which is sacred. Also you can see some flowers over their hands and a cotton made towel ( called Gamchha ) over it.
I had no tripod at that time and I tried to capture this night shot with the presence of artificial light keeping the camera on my knee when I was sitting on my hill. Hope you'll like the effort tried with its limitations.
