Zar Zari Zar Baksh Dargah, ritual of thanksgiving for child, child sitting in the balance

Abstract

This child in her finest dress and blud scarf sits patiently in the metal crate of the balance as she is weighed against the bags of sweetbreads to be distributed to the community. Following a custom widely practiced in all religious communities in South Asia, the girl, as the primary participant in the ritual, wears a garland of fresh flowers.
