What is nata pratha and what is the difference between nata and getting remarried? India?
I saw this Indian hindi soap opera "balika vadhu" yesterday and I came to know about naata pratha which is prevalent in villages of India and is approved by jati panch of villages and Indian societies.
So if a girl is divorced/widowed ain't she has right to get remarried? Nowadays many girls and boys are divorced and getting remarried, nothing big deal in that. So if a girl remarry does that mean she's going on naata. Whats the difference between naata pratha and divorcee/widowed girl getting remarried?

According to the Times of India, it is a system in "Rajasthan by which a married woman can go away with another man in lieu of money paid to the her husband or his family by the second man."
Sounds strange. Almost like selling your ex wife into concubinage or something.
I don't fully understand it myself. It sounds obscure because there doesn't seem to be a lot of information about it on the web.Source(s): . http://www.hindu.com/2000/06/18/stories/13180619.h... http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2010-0...
