Jewellery, steel and brass pots and pans, Kanjeevaram sarees galore -- the 3 'Ps' that rule the world of TamBrahm Maamis. All TamBrahm marriages critically hinge on PPP and then go doom, doom, doom. Ironically, PPP doom doom doom is also the refrain that emanates from nadaswarams at these marriages.

Usage
