Imli ghutai: The ritual of imli ghutai is performed by the bride’s maternal uncle-aunt to ward off any bad omen and to advise the bride to keep away from any vice. The uncle then feeds her a betel nut (mango leaf in Mauritius) which the bride holds with her teeth. Her mother then takes it away from her and eats it herself, signifying that she shall take away all the bad omens falling upon her daughter herself. The bride’s mother is then gifted clothes as a token of blessing by his uncle-aunt.
