A mark of an everlasting bond, tying the Mangalsutra has been an auspicious tradition followed in most marriages for centuries in India. Originally a Hindu tradition, the mangalsutra has become such a universal symbol in Indian weddings that over time, other religions have also adopted the tradition of tying the mangalsutra. Mostly made in gold, the meaning and history behind the mangalsutra is profound, and has different cultural implications in different parts of India. While in some parts of India, people still uphold the traditional way of adorning the propitious piece of jewellery, in some parts, people have acclimatized to new and modern designs of wearing the mangalsutra.

If our forte lies in jewellery making, why is India not playing to its strength? Where is the industry lacking and what should it be doing to be on top? Explores Vijetha Rangabashyam
