Hello Harumi,


In what context did she use 'achhaa'. Was it in reply to someone in a conversation? 'Achhaa 'sometimes is also used as acknowledgment or showing surprise.

Hello Harumi,


The veil is the duppatta that comes along with the lehanga or salwar suit. But when it is taken over the head it becomes or is rather called a 'ghoonghat'.

Hello Harumi,


Yes sadly dowry system still prevails in traditional marriages. However the modern educated class might not be too rigid about it these days but again it totally depends on the family. Theres no fixed price or amount for dowry. It can be negotiation sometimes or sometimes simply what the brides family can or are capable to offer.

The ornament worn above forehead is called 'maang tikka'.

Hello Harumi,


duppatta is a long scraf kind of thing which is worn on the neck or sideways with a salwar kameez , also called 'suit'.

Whereas 'sari' is a long cloth about 6 mtrs and is draped with pleats around the waist and then comes over the shoulder.

choli is simply a blouse worn with a sari or a lehanga.

churidaar is the bottom pants which are tapered and tight like leggings and are worn with a log shirt/kurta.


Hope this helps:)
