Viral Video: Weddings in India are known for their extravagance and the multitude of rituals they entail. Now, a video of a mother-in-law welcoming her son-in-law on his wedding day is making waves on social media. The video shows the mother-in-law offering a traditional welcome to the groom with sweets, but what is particularly unusual is that she also presents him with cigarettes and paan, a preparation of betel leaf and areca nut that is popular in India.
Preserving Culture and Tradition at Weddings in India
While the inclusion of cigarettes and paan in a traditional welcome may be seen as unconventional by some, it is not entirely unheard of. Paan is often offered as a sign of hospitality in Indian households, and smoking is still a common practice in many parts of the country. However, it is important to note that smoking is harmful to health and can lead to a number of serious health issues, including lung cancer and heart disease.

Importance of Balancing Tradition and Health in Indian Weddings
It is worth noting that while weddings in India are known for their grandeur, they are also an important part of Indian culture and tradition. Each ritual has its own significance, and the wedding ceremony itself is seen as a sacred bond between two families. While it is always interesting to see new traditions and customs emerge, it is important to remember the importance of preserving cultural heritage while also promoting positive values, such as health and well-being. As such, while a traditional welcome with sweets, paan, and cigarettes may seem like a quirky addition to a wedding, it is important to always consider the potential impact of our actions and decisions, especially when it comes to our health.
