If you're a South Indian 'Tambram' (Tamil Brahmin) who went through the traditional 'whole nine yards' , wedding ceremony to literally 'tie the knot', you would probably remember the 'oonjal' ceremony. Its a beautiful social part of the whole 3 day event (yes, the ceremonies span 3 days!). where the bride & groom are seated on a double swing (decorated to the hilt with fragrant garlands) & are revered as Lord Vishnu & Lakshmi. They get their feet washed (albeit, just ceremonially, with a fingertip's worth of milk) and are fed a mix of milk with bananas ('Paalum Pazham') by the spoonful, by all the older married female relatives. and this is where the interesting innovative hacks begin to fall into place.
