Further information: Engagement
An engagement  (Mangni), is a formal ceremony to mark the engagement of the couple.[3] It is usually a small ceremony that takes place in the presence of a few close members of would-be bride's & groom’s families. Rings and other items of jewellery amongst affluent families are exchanged between the would be bride and groom. Traditionally, the bride and the groom were not seated together and the rings are placed on the bride's finger by the groom's mother or sister and vice versa. In recent years however, segregated functions have become a rarity and rings are usually exchanged between the couple. Prayer and blessings for the couple are then recited and the wedding date is decided.
