The boy’s mother would have done all the homework in getting into the long and shorts of the family via neighbors and relatives of proposed girl.
If agreed, girl’s parents will make their way to inform about the positive response and consent.
Now it’s preparation time for marriage.
In the process boy’s father have done with the ‘cash gifts’ to other party.
