This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. My theme for the month is A to Z of words in English with an Arabic origin.
Another post about unique aspects of wedding in my culture (Kerala, South India) is the jasmine garland and jasmine braids on hair worn by the bride. Little girls await eagerly for weddings so that they too can wear the “poovu – mala” (flower chain).
Fun fact : Another word with ‘J’ with an Arabic origin is “Jinn”. Thought I will mention this due to the recent release of the movie by the same name.
