Description:Mr. Dorjee Jebisow acts as elder and performs 'shobotro' ceremony where gifts from the families of the bride and the groom are calculated. Mr. Pinchu acts as his helper. This is a staged event through which we listed all the gifts that are exchanged during a marriage. The two even argued in between, and were quite amused when they saw the video later. They asked us to keep the entire video as it is, since arguments happen in real marriages too!
