Kankuvarna Pagla

After the wedding , the couple returns to the groom’s house. On their arrival, the groom’s mother welcomes the couple and asks them to stand near the main door. There a kankoo (red powder) with water is in a dish where the bride is asked to dip her foot and make footprints on the floor of the room. This is said to be kankuvarna pagla, i.e. Godess Laxmi’s footprints, and this means that Laxmi ( Goddess )  has come to the house.
