Kasargod: Cross-border couple tie knot after hiccups, quarantined


Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod (SP)

Kasargod, May 19: After failing to get married at the appointed spot and time, a bride and groom from two neighbouring states finally arrived at the border between the two states to tie the customary mangalsutra around the bride's neck to signify solemnisation of the marriage. This incident happened on May 18.

Pushparaj is from Mulleria in this district. His marriage was to be held with Vimala from Mangaluru on Monday in the city. Because of coronavirus issue, travel between the two states has been banned and the border has been sealed. Pushparaj reportedly had applied for pass a number of times but the collector of Kasargod district had not entertained his applications.

Still, the groom arrived at Talapady border shared by Kerala with Karnataka at 7 am on Monday with the hope of being allowed to go to Mangaluru. The marriage was to be held at 11 am. But the officials refused him permission to move to Mangaluru.

Learning that the groom and his entourage was stuck at the state's border, the bride and her family members arrived at Talapady. As the district administration stayed firm, the two sides decided to get married at the border between the two states.

The district administration finally buckled under pressure and issued pass in the afternoon. The girl was taken to the residence of the groom in the evening and the marriage was performed in the night.

The couple are under compulsory home quarantine now.

    There is a correction. Pushparaj did not apply pass and he don’t need pass. But Vimala applied pass as emergency medical need and it was surly rejected because no medical details was attached during application submission.
    Vimala realised pass was rejected after arriving at border, on spot pass was applied which takes 6-8hrs and then later it was granted in non medical basis.

    If the groom or bride is from any political party then they would not have suffered so much to get married.
    All couples who got divorced were married at the  Subah Muhatraam given by the Pujari or blessed by Priest in the church or Mullah in Masjid
    There is something greater than this which plays a vital role for successful marriage.

    Home quarantine of 14 days for the newly married couple is the best honeymoon.

    Sometimes Subah Muhatraam plays a vital role in many occassions. Anyhow after efforts from the both the sides marriage is solemnised in border may be it's wish of god. For all he only the sutradaar.

    If they are united at the border despite all the human hardships why do you want to torment them with more hardship of separate rooms? ? ?
