Has my groom arrived yet?

The photo is taken at a village which is resided by the people of a specific caste (bheel) in the western part of India. The lady is in her 60's and remains unmarried, which is not quite 'normal'.she however, could be seen dressed as beautifully as the other married ladies of the village. Infact, she was more beautifully dressed than the rest, much like a bride to be.
