In bridge rectification why we ground the load resistance?
what effect if we not grounded the load?

the ground usually means a reference terminal for voltage

If its not grounded no current can flow through it.

current always flow if supply is connected it idoes not depend on ground

that ground has no physical existence
its just a reference point
with respect to this point we see the direction of current flowing through the resistor
