After the Hatha Ganti, Sonu and his new bride sat down for a Homa (prayers to and oaths before Agni, the God of Fire).
The last part of the marriage is of course the Cowrie Khella or playing with cowrie shells. This is conducted by an old lady of the bride’s family and the game is baised towards the girl. There is just no way for the poor groom to win.
