Patel studied four Vedas, vedic literature and Manusmruti to document this book on wedding titled Lagna Vidhi, Vishwas ane Virasat ( Marriage ceremony, faith and tradition). "This book explains the logic behind the rituals. And understanding the link between the two enables the youth to respect our customs, rituals and tradition," said Patel. 
"I planned to write the book to explain the process of marriage to my future daughter-in-law and son who live in Australia," he added. An NRG has ordered 1,500 copies of the book as it ably captures the Hindu wedding ceremony with its 72 rituals and many of the expatriates would cherish this book, said Patel.
