Hindu families by tradition ensure they do puja before getting anything home. They do a small ceremony blessing the thing or person which is believed to be for good luck. A recent video which is going viral on social media platforms shows a puppy receiving similar treatment on arriving at home. A TikTok video by user Shreyagid shows a woman performing aarti as a girl holds the pup. The rituals look like that of welcoming an Indian Hindu bride to their husband's house after marriage. It may also remind you of 'Griha Pravesh Puja' that people conduct before first entering a house. Also, the ritual is quite popular when people who have been staying away from family, come to visit them, especially among NRIs, that was popularised through Bollywood movies. In the meanwhile, a similar video of another Indian family welcoming a puppy to their homes with a full-fledged ceremonial welcome had gone viral.
