Hindu Bengali women wear certain symbols of marriage, like Shakha, Pola, Loha, Sindoor and Aalta. Shakha is white bangles of conch shell and Pola are red bangles made of red corals. Shakha and Pola are worn in both hands. It is to be seen that within one year of the marriage, they do not break. If anything of that sort happens, it is not considered good omen for the married life of the bride. Loha is a bangle made of iron. It is worn only in the left hand. It may or may not be covered by gold. Sindoor is vermilion which is applied on the parting of the hair. Usage of Sindoor by a woman implies that she is already married. Aalta or Mahawar or Rose Bengal is a red dye which women in India (specially Rajput, Bengali and Oriya women in Eastern India) apply with cotton on the border of their feet during marriages and religious festivals. All these are symbols of marriage for Hindu Bengali women. Many believe that wearing these could ward off bad omens. All these symbols of marriage are worn by women only.
