Form what I think I know, churkee is the tail or small pc hair sticking up after the rest of the head is shaved for Hindu religious reasons ( tradition)

Makachoree same as ungrateful or good for nothing…at least in the context it was used in my neighbourhood

Usually, the Dulaha would remove the sirbandi to indicate that the Dulahin is no longer a virgin.
