Tamil Nadu single mother performs daughter's kanyadaanam.
Kanyadaanam, the ritual of giving away the daughter is performed by the parents together. But Rajeshwari a single mother who raised her children alone broke the decade-old tradition.
Rajeshwari performed her daughter's kanyadaanam alone instead of letting someone else conduct this major ritual.
Kanyadaanam, a patriarchal ritual was done in a different way altogether by Rajeshwari breaking the norms. A very warm picture of the daughter getting married on her mother's lap has been doing rounds on social media.
