Ek Zhala Batuk|Thread Ceremony in Pune
Our communities are filled with milestone events all through our life. Stepping outside our routine documentation and event coverage, we have always cherished to find stories at every other corner of our lives. We recently travelled to Pune to document one of the most important milestones in a boy's life. Although an integral part of the Hindu culture (10th Sanskar of the Hindu Sanatan Dharma) , the thread ceremony has its own stature in the Maharashtrian community. This ceremony marks the coming of age of young boy with 3 vows : to respect knowledge, parents and the society. This is known as the "Supreme Teaching"
