The Story Behind Red And White Bangles In Punjabi Chuda

An individual's pivotal step in life is taken when one plans on getting married, and for women, especially, marriage is like a dream she sees from childhood. The auspicious event of marriage brings two souls together. There are many rituals in every society & clan in India and each ritual holds a special meaning. There's a special chuda ceremony which takes place for a bride. This originated in the region of Punjab although Rajasthani chuda or Rajasthani bangles are also compulsorily worn by the brides in Rajasthan. Wearing chuda and kalire are two most important jewellery accessories for a Punjabi bride which symbolise the positive beginning of her marital life.

The Punjabi Chuda and its sweet story-
Bridal bangles of a Punjabi bride for her wedding day are called Chuda which are pre-chosen by the maternal uncle of the bride who makes her wear them on the wedding day morning. These wedding bangles come in a set of two for each hand. As per the traditions, a set of 21 bangles is selected by the family which are white and red in colour. Although the trends have changed and some brides also opt for colours like pink, maroon, orange, and so on.

To begin the Chuda ceremony, a small prayer session is organized for the bride after which the chuda bangles are dipped in milk and roses to purify them. After this, the bride is made to wear these chudas and a white cloth is wrapped around them till the time the wedding ceremony doesn't start.

A part of Solah Shringar-
Wearing chuda is an integral and personal part of the Solah Shringar ritual for any Punjabi woman getting married. The red coloured bangles in the chuda symbolise closeness as the bride is supposed to be close and connected from deep within with her husband. The red bangles also stand for fertility and prosperity and the bride is meant to wear the chuda for a minimum of 40-45 days from the day of her wedding.

Traditionally, chudas were made from ivory but now since it is illegal to trade in ivory, plastic chudas are manufactured. The bangles have embossing and engravings over them. Some brides personalise their chuda even further by getting their husband's name engraved over the bangles. Some brides begin their chuda wearing journey with 21 bangles on each hand but with time lessen the number of bangles as per their comfort level. Chudas are diverse that ways and look great with ethnic as well as western outfits. Maybe this is why the tradition of wearing chuda has spread amongst other communities too in India. It is truly said that when a woman wears chuda, she hardly needs any other statement accessory to flaunt her beautiful looks.

Amritsar, Ludhiana, Patiala and some other cities in Punjab are famous for their special chuda designs and some of the manufacturers are so popular with their craft of designing chudas that they even export their designs abroad and even celebrities have gotten their chudas designed by these selected manufacturers.
