@ChronicProcrastinato Thanks a lot! The video you introduced me not only taught the pronounciation but also taught how it is used.
In the video, a man put red things to his girlfriend's forehead. Is that a kind of tika?Is the stone with red thing something like a holy statue?🤔It's lovely that lovers express their love in that way.
@cisca Yes, that's technically a tika but used like sindoor in the video. The act of putting sindoor along the parting of woman's hair is performed during the wedding. The guy seems to be imitating that ritual as if he is marrying the girl. In the case of wedding, the tika is called 'sindoor'. You can watch that ritual here👇 if you want to. https://www.instagram.com/p/BCPead7jsz1/
The video looks very melodramatic, as music videos and films usually are.😁 I highly doubt anybody does that.
Yes, that stone idol is a holy statue. We, Nepalese are idolatrous so we worship the idol as God.
@ChronicProcrastinato Thanks for your answer and introducing me the video😄 Oh, you have such a habit called sindoor as marrige performance? It sounds unique and interesting. Red color seems to be very important there.
Maybe I'll see lots of holy statues all over Nepal😄
