The Promising Kalire
These umbrella-shaped hangings are a unique combination with the chura, which signifies happiness for the newlyweds and eternal love between the couple. The bride's sisters and friends tie the kalire to her chura. The significance is to provide good wishes to the bride and to remind her of her cousins and friends whom she is going to leave behind when she gets married. Also, the coconut-shape of the kalire is symbolic that she never runs out of food in the new home, while the metal symbolizes wealth and prosperity.
