Rare and Old Himachali Traditional Marriage Pictures from Kangra-Mandi (HP) (Black and White)


Today, we live in a very colourful world where Black and white photographs have become matter of old time. More than thirty years back, black and white photographs were only option with people to capture their important moments. Himachal Pradesh is known for its rich cultural heritage and unique traditions. Below I am sharing pictures of my parent’s marriage which took place on 26 June, 1977 almost 36 years back. These pictures were taken at our ancestral village near Baijnath and Mandi town in Himachal. These all pictures are black white and have small size; though, I have tried to improve their clarity to maximum visibility.  In these pictures, you can find some glimpse of old traditions of Himachal Pradesh.

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is opposite of general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is main point of many talks and at many places where age of girl is more than boy, then this example is given.

Life is very short so live it fully

The saddest part of the life of many people is that they die before realizing that life is very short and for many things, they will not get a second chance. Life passes very fast and no one knows for sure that how much time he or she has got with them. Generally, no one tells this secret to us because they themselves don't know. Death comes so fast that most of us are unaware of it. When a child is born then he doesn't bothered about death because of his limited intelligence. When he becomes adult, he feels that he has the whole life in front of him. 

He chooses a carrier and starts working hard to achieve goals of his life. Soon, he becomes so busy in all this that he doesn't get time to realize that life is fast moving out of his hands. Only on the deathbed, he gets few seconds to think about the biggest mistake of his life. I am not suggesting you that you should not work hard or choose a carrier. I am only suggesting you be aware of the life going out of your hands. Wh…

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…
