The marriage ceremony includes many rituals. The marriage proper ends with the Hatha Ganti or tying of hands. The right hand of the bride and groom are tied together with ropes of grass over a coconut placed above an earthen pot of blessed water.
The bride’s sister unties the bond after appropriate payment, of course.
