It starts as..,
Today is Roka ceremony. Uma, Ajay, Vansh and Siya (Vansh’s sister) visit Riddhima’s house.
Sejal : Welcome..Come inside..
Uma nods. The servant keeps boxes of gifts on the table. Ajay congrtaluates Aryan. Now, Riddhima comes down in a pink lehenga..Ajay and Aryan keep Riddhima and Vansh’s hands on each other. Angre ( Riddhima’s brother) clicks a beautiful picture of their hands.
They all start talking.
Riddhima : Vansh, leave my hand..
Vansh : I’ll never leave this hand even if this world, or the GOD is against us..
Riddhima : Budhu! I’ve to go to drink water!
Vansh : Ohh..Sure ma’am..here you go..(leaves her hand)
After deciding the wedding date, they leave the house. After two days, once again, Vansh and his family are invited to Riddhima’s house for the chunni ceremony. Uma brings a packet of red clothes, a chunni and jewellery. Uma places the chunni on Riddhima’s head and gives her blessings and sweets. Vansh sits besides Riddhima.
Vansh : Kaha woh zimedariyon ki chunnat sir pe odhne wali hai, Kaha unn logon ne hmari shaadi hone wali hai…
Riddhima : Tum kya shayris likh kr roz yaad krte ho? (Do you write shayris and learn everyday)
Vansh : Ofcourse, Google baba zindaabad..
Uma : Vansh, go and bring the ring..
Vansh : Yess mom..
(Yes, the engagement ceremony is on the same day of chunni ceremony in some casts)
Vansh goes and brings the ring. They both exchange their rings. Everyone claps.
Riddhima (whispers in Vansh’s ears) : Rasta ho ek toh, manzil aaye na, rhein hum dono ikathe, koi sataawe naa..(If the path is one, and the destination doesn’t arrives, we both should live together and no one should trouble us)
Vansh : Waah! Still we aren’t married and I’ve left a great impact on you..
Sejal : From today, till the Haldi, you both will not meet each other..
Vansh : Whatt?
Sejal : Vansh beta, it’s the matter of only two days..
Vansh : TWO DAYS?
Sejal : Yaa..Are they less?
Vansh : NOOOO..
He makes a sad face, leaving everyone laugh.
The mehdni ceremony day :
In RS Mansion :
Some girls come to apply henna on Riddhima and her friends hands.
Girl : Whose name?
Riddhima : Vansh..*blushes*
The girl nods and writes Vansh. After some time, the dance floor gets occupied.
“Mera sajna mileya
Sajna milan vadhaiyan
Ni saajan doli leke aauna
Ni vehra sajeya
Mera sajna mileya
Sajna mileya haan
Din shagna da chadheyaa..”
After the mehndi ceremony gets over, they all move to their places.
In Riddhima’s room :
She picks up her phone and sees Vansh’s message.
“Ek ladki ke haathon pr jab mehndi rachaai jaati hai, toh bohot saare rishton ki ehemiyaat bataayi jaati hai” She futher messages him..”Accha ji?” He replies”Hanji, Vaise send me your mehndi’s pic, I want to find my name”
She sends him picture of her mehndi, he replies to it”It’s blur, not fair”
“Everything is fair in love and war, Vansh, now find out”
After 10 mins, “Here it is! In the center of your palm”
“Well done! I appericiate you..”
“Bye..Mom is calling me”
She goes. Vansh smiles at his house. On the sangeet day, both the famlies perform “Jaago” at their houses., and now it’s the time of “Ghadoli”
Riddhima : Bhai! I told you call Ishani bhabhi , now who’ll do my Ghadoli?
A girl comes to Riddhima and says,”ME”
Angre : Ishu!!
Ishani hugs Angre.
Riddhima : Thank you bhabhi for coming.

She holds ghada/matki/pot on her head and goes to the gurudwara/temple and fills it with water. Riddhima sits wearing tang top and jeans, Ishani splashes the water on Riddhima. The same custom is taken place at Vansh’s house. Next day is the wedding day..

Riddhima : Why this mamu?
Her mamu : This is considered as bad luck, till you get ready fully, you can’t see it.
Kalire are tied to her bangles which signifies well-being, happy life and fertitlity of the bride. Riddhima’s friend, Sakshi, comes and sits under her, Riddhima shakes the kalire on her.

Then, Angre ties both with a piece of cloth, Riddhima leads the first three rounds of pheras while Vansh leads the other four. After this, Vansh anoints vermillion in Riddhima’s hair partition. While this takes place, Riddhima’s cousin sisters and friends hide Vansh’s shoes and demand ransom from him. This ceremony is taken place with joy and happiness. They all arrive at the palace. After some dance and celebration, Riddhima bids bye to her family crying..She then sits in Vansh’s car and leaves for her new house.
