J&K Girl Arwa Imtiyaz Bhat Helps Sportspersons From J&K Sports Association For The Deaf

Seven minutes into a video shot by 21-year old Siddhant Indrekar, an elderly, combative man utters the words, “Maal khara khara khara”. The words which mean “goods are pure” come after a heated exchange. In the video, two men can be seen throwing Rs 5,000 on the ground. A couple dressed in wedding finery look on as someone from the crowd gets up and collects the cash. Siddhant, who belongs to the Kanjarbhat community in Maharashtra, shot the video on November 21, 2017 at his aunt’s daughter’s wedding in Vishrantwadi, Pune. The elderly man calling the shots in the video is a member of the caste council, or jaat panchayat, which “approves” the marriage in the Kanjarbhat community.
