ANAND KARAJ MARRIAGES: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

By: Palaaksha Kandhari

Abstract

India as a nation has culture, family values, bonding and upholding the sanctity of relationships, in its blood. A myriad of sects, groups, religions and other such social organisations of people live together in unity and harmony, maintaining peace and perpetuating the country’s further generations. Marriage has been given a position deemed as highly sacred, pure and central to an individual’s survival in the social hierarchy of inter-personal relationships. Customs and traditions, present in the many religions in our country, related to marriage, have been codified in the law of the land. One such religion in our country, which emerged out of the two religions with the maximum population in India, is Sikhism. Marriage in Sikhism is considered a sacred duty, a very fundamental one to the religion’s principles, and has its own customs and rites to have a solemnised marriage. However, according to Indian law, Sikhism is not a distinct religion and its followers are considered part of the Hindu religion, which may lead to a variety of questions as to the validity of the customs related to Sikh marriage, clashes with Hindu rituals, marriage registration and other concerns which are now being steadily taken up to pursue varying pursuits, but the questions stands as follows- separation or reformation or inclusion.
