Haladi-Kunku (हळदी-कुंकू)

Haldi Kuku, or the Haldi Kumkum ceremony, is a social gathering in India in which married women exchange haldi (turmeric) and kumkum (vermilion powder), as a symbol of their married status.
Women invite each other to their homes. On a lighter note: By the time a woman is back to her home after attending the ceremony at neighbours, the extent of this social gathering is directly proportional to the haladi kumkum on her forehead and is easily visible.
