Mora is made out of bamboo.It is also used to clean lentils and cereals.In olden days new born babies were first kept in new mora and then in a cradle.During wedding Mora, filled with 5 types of lentils,rice,jaggery,salt Haldi,kukkum,blouse piece mirror. comb, black beads etc.. given as a gift. it is called"Morada bagina".During Gowri festival also "Morada bagina" is given as a gift.These are a few morada bagina That I have decorated for my nephew's wedding.
