A Hindu Bengali ritual "SAADH' or wish'

The ritual of SAADH or wish performed according to Hindu Bengali rites for pregnant women.Mainly from the parental side. The first is performed on the fifth month of pregnancy,the Panchammrita. Second on the seventh month the Saptammrita. These two are mainly for wishing the well beings of the would be mother and her unborn child. Has to observe rules according to the religion. Requires priests to conduct the whole episode. This is totally a female ritual,males has no role except for arranging the materials for it. The main ritual is performed on the ninth month of pregnancy. When menus, as per the SAADH or wish of the pregnant woman is served to her. New cloths are given to her.To the fulfillment of her wish. Hundreds of years ago, when the ritual was came in vogue had a different meaning. Seriousness of that meaning has almost faded now. Thanks to the advancement of medical science.It has become a joyful ritual now. Think, the problems of child birth of just a hundred year ago? The mortality rate of the pregnant women during child birth? Here lies the necessity or the object of the ritual. In those days no parent was sure of whether their daughter would come smiling with her newborn child in her lap, after delivary? Many a times they had to experience the loss of the life of their beloved daughter. Out of this apprehension and to have a little solace if they were unfortunate? Tried to fulfill the wish or "SAADH' of their daughter,before delivary? Thus the ritual began.Sometimes this is performed equally from the in law sides too. Today it has gained a new meaning of a chance of get together and feast, joined by both sides and relatives. Here are some pictures of the ritual performed for 'PINKI' the pregnant woman.
