8. Kodiyaal or Koru Arapuvavu

Announcement of the arrival of the groom's procession (Ma, that boy is here. I think he needs to use the toilet again.)

On reaching the plantain stumps, three men from the groom's party go to the bride's house to inform her family of the arrival of the groom's procession.
The bride's family offers these three men refreshments (yeah, for sure they will be a thirsty lot) and then a chosen few from the bride's family along with the wedding band accompanies them to the spot where the plantain stumps are staked, to welcome the groom's procession.

I have an opinion and so should you! Leave your bouquets, brickbats and battle axes here, preferably in a language I can understand. If coyness gets the better of you, then email me (emailbasicallyblah@gmail.com).
