Aeki Beki is a playful and traditional post-wedding ceremony game that is commonly played in Gujarati weddings. It is a lighthearted activity that brings laughter and joy to the newlywed couple and their guests. The game involves a pot filled with water and several small objects, including a ring.
Here’s how the game of Aeki Beki is typically played:
A large tray or vessel is prepared, filled with water. Sometimes rose petals or milk are added to make the water more fragrant and visually appealing.
Small objects, including a ring, are placed in the tray or pot of water.
The newlywed couple sits facing together and dips their hands into the water without looking.
The couple is given a limited amount of time to find the ring from the water.
The person who finds the ring first is believed to have a dominant role in the marriage or be the one who will make important decisions.
The game of Aeki Beki is a light-hearted and entertaining way to involve the couple in a fun activity and to engage the guests in playful celebration. It is meant to bring laughter and cheer to the wedding festivities and is often enjoyed by family members, friends, and guests.
