    Newly-wedded Indian daughters-in-law usually get such a welcome at her in-laws’ house on the first day. Their arrival is equated with the arrival of the Goddess of Prosperity (Lakshmi) and thus considered auspicious and welcome in such a manner.

    A video of an Indian family welcoming a puppy’s first entry into their home like any newly-wedded bride will leave you in splits and make you go aww.

    The 45-second video clip on Twitter reads: “My new favorite thing is desi families welcoming their new puppies with traditional ceremonies.”

    ​The video shows a white coloured puppy is being welcomed in full Hindu traditional manner, by showering floral petals, applying sacred vermillion as a mark on the forehead, and then taking the first imprints of its feet to value it as an auspicious arrival.    

    The video has gone viral since being posted on Monday with 30.5K retweets, 1.2 million views, and 139.8K likes in just one day.
