Jiti

Anita, 23, well-educated girl got married with Rahul, 26 years old, engineer by occupation. On their wedding night, they had to follow „ Jiti ‘‘ritual, the virginity test! Because every bride from the Kanjar Bhat community undergoes a ‘virginity test’. After the marriage ceremonies were complete, Anita accompanied her husband to a lodge; they’re given a white bedsheet, and a stipulated time within which to consummate their marriage. Panchayat, Committee people were eagerly waiting outside their room as they had keen interest in the result: “Maal Khara nighala ki khota’’. The bride who doesn’t bleed on her wedding night is believed to have engaged in premarital sex, and that’s when Anita’s ordeal truly began.
