Wedding Ceremonies in Punjab

Myrvold, Kristina LU (2004) In Journal of Punjab Studies 11(2). p.155-170
Abstract
While the specificities of different religious communities are underscored, the paper focuses on the shared cultural values and symbols that frame marriage ceremonies in the Punjab. The study concludes with how ritual theories help us analyse these ceremonies and assess the impact of modernity on their nature and function.
