'Marriage with dead person'
For the unversed, marrying a dead person is highly unusual, however, it is not first of a kind incident. A highly-unusual tradition called Pretha Kalyanam', or 'marriage of the dead' is still kept alive by a few communities in Karnataka as well as in parts of Kerala. "For those who are not accustomed to traditions of Dakshina Kannada this might sound funny but it’s a serious tradition here," Youtuber Anny Arun wrote in a Twitter thread that went viral earlier this year. "For those who died in childbirth, they are usually married off to another child who is deceased during the childbirth," he explained.
I'm attending a marriage today. You might ask why it deserve a tweet. Well groom is dead actually. And bride is dead too. Like about 30 years ago.— AnnyArun (@anny_arun) July 28, 2022
And their marriage is today. For those who are not accustomed to traditions of Dakshina Kannada this might sound funny. But (contd)
..its a serious tradition here. For those who died in child birth, they are usually married off to another child who is deceased during the child birth. All the customs happen just like any marriage. Two families will go to each other's house for the engagement(contd)— AnnyArun (@anny_arun) July 28, 2022
