This lockdown has taught us many things such as maintaining social distance, surviving with limited budget, spending time with our loved ones without seeing each other etc. Now, to our surprise, it even taught the people of our country to get married through video call. Yes, you read it right. A bride and groom who got stuck in Uttar Pradesh and Kerala due to lockdown, got married through video call to make it happen in the date they fixed earlier.

Anjana is an engineer by profession who works in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Family members of both of them decided to conduct the marriage on 26th of April. Due to the lockdown announcement which was made by our honourable Prime minister on 24th of March, Anjana couldn’t reach her hometown. However, family members decided to conduct the marriage on the 26th of April. They planned to conduct the marriage through online video conference.
On the marriage day, Anjana who lives in an apartment in Lucknow, got herself prepared for her marriage in traditional attire.

கனவிலும் நினக்க முடியாத தெய்வீக திருமணம்! மனங்கள் இணையவேண்டும். இணைய வழியில் இணந்துள்ள இந்த தாலி கட்டிய திருமணம் அநேகமாக ஒரு கின்னஸ் சாதனையாக கூட இருக்கலாம்? மணமக்களை வாழ்த்துவோம்!— chockalingamsona (@eNagarathar) April 29, 2020
Let us wish the couple to have a happy, healthy and successful marriage life ahead. As far as the Lockdown limitation is concerned, the government is likely to extend in order to avoid people getting infected in large number. So far India discovered 31, 787 positive corona cases and the death toll raised to 1008. Maharashtra continues to be the most affected state with 9,318 positive cases.
