Documentary Project

The Hindu wedding or Vivaha, as it is regionally called, is one of the most sacred and elaborate celebration in Hindu tradition. I witnessed its intricate process and rituals when I documented a wedding at the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple along Serangoon Rd. in Little India, Singapore. It was a unique experience documenting this event. Its long celebration teeming with rituals, dances, music, and abundant food offerings all fused together is truly incredible and eye-opening. 

 

Documenting this made me realise how important customs and traditions are in every culture. It provides us the depth of understanding of how we came to be. Customs and traditions are our history as a people, it’s our identity, and our unique knowledge. It is a very large part of who and what we are, and we should all embrace it.
