In Tamil Brahmin weddings, `Nalangu` refers to the fun filled game session that comes immediately after the wedding is over. The bride and groom are seated opposite each other on a mat on the floor and the session starts with a small `make-up` session where the couple has to apply sandal paste, kumkum, powder and other beautifying elements on each other. This is followed by rolling of the coconut across the floor to each other which is followed by a tug-of-war contest to see who is stronger of the two in retrieving the coconut, exchange of rice and dal, and breaking of the appalams.
