Sagai (Engagement)

The engagement ceremony is brief and simple. When the family priest informs the parents of the boy and the girl that the horoscopes tally the marriage is settled. The father of the girl then sends the boy's father a coconut , a coloured turban, clothes, ornaments, dry fruits, sweets, paan etc. In some families, the engagement ceremony is performed by presenting only a coconut and some money, the coconut being the main symbol of engagement.
