Turmeric punching!


Punching! Punching!
Turmeric punching!
Auspicious happening
In a wooden mortar!

It is our state and family culture,
To assemble the relatives to nurture,
To help the couple for the pleasure,
Of forming a better future!

It is formal information,
Started its quick motion,
To carry out one by one action,
To conclude in the marriage!
