Magazine Article on a Sikh Wedding. Your homework is to produce a magazine article on a Sikh wedding. You need to make sure that you explain to your readers what takes place before the actual ceremony, so make sure that you include the following: The night before the wedding, there is a party at the Bride’s house, where she is given sweets and money, and has henna tattoos painted onto her hands and feet. Only women are allowed to this party. On the morning of the wedding, the bridegroom and his family go to the bride’s house. They are given presents, usually cloth for turbans or clothing. They all then make their way to the gurdwara, where the ceremony will take place. You then need to make sure that you explain what happens at the ceremony: Include what the bride and groom wear-Remember; it won’t be a white dress and a tuxedo! Make sure that you explain why these items of clothing and jewellery are important. Use your labelled pictures from the lesson to help you explain what they wear. Write about the role that the Guru Granth Sahib plays within the ceremony, and that it is used for prayers and readings. After reading and singing the Lavan, which is a wedding hymn written by Guru Ram Das, the bride and groom walk around the Guru Granth Sahib four times. At the end of the ceremony, everyone stands and share karah parshad. It would also be important to include pictures and lots of colour. You can do it on the computer.
