Photographer's Note

Barat refers to the procession of the groom accompanied by family members, relatives and friends. The groom sits on a decorated luxury car, resplendent in his wedding attire. Alongside the groom there is the barati (groom's entourage) which also has its own customs to observe leading him in procession to the marriage venue while providing much revelry.

These days the procession usually starts very close to the wedding venue the groom formally sits in a car and is led to the marriage venue among much singing and dancing.You can see a mobile orchestra party here in the rickshaws waiting for the procession to start. soon this place will fill with very loud music and dance.
