At this Bridal market, teenage girls are sold for hundreds of dollars. This happens four times a year where the girls from almost all cities in the world can participate in the 'bride market'. The girls on sale have to virgins and in case they are not, then they would be called out by the name of whores and sluts.
The girls mostly belong to the low-financial families and boys come from well-being families who are seeking a wife. These people dance, flirt and interact with each other in the market until they find the 'one'. The price of the bride may vary from anything between Rs 1.86 lakh to Rs 3.72 lakh depending on the merits and beauty of the bride.
The girls are dressed in short dresses with lots of makeup and are mostly school drop-outs and are too young to be married. The origin of the traditions dates back to generations.
