Kasargod's Ghost Weddings - Why dead kids are married off here

According to a tradition still prevalent in this district of Kerala, children who died before the age of 18, i.e, before they could experience worldly pleasures are married off in order to prevent anything bad happening to their families.




However, since some of these children died when they were infants, their effigies, dressed in the clothes of the bride and groom are married.

This is known as Pretha Kalyanam.
