Mangalore, May 6: Poverty is not a curse, it is boon. Only a poor family can enjoy the real love and affection. But one should struggle hard each and every movement to come out of poverty, said Dr Edward Nazareth, well known Konkani writer and doctor in the city.

He was speaking the mass marriage organized in Rosario church ground on Sunday May 6 by the Society of St Vincent Paul (SVP) .

“SVP here is doing an appreciable job by uniting the couple in wedlock since 32 years. Efforts should be put to organize such mass marriages in the Varado level also. Not only to help the economically backward people, but also to promote simple marriages in the society. Mass marriage in the Varado level is the need of the hour” he spoke.

“Many people get married undergoing a huge debt and later they struggle life long to pay off that debt. Even some of the couples have succumbed to abortion, owing to huge debt taken at the time of their marriage. To avoid this hazard, one should promote simple marriages” he said.

“Alcohol is major reason for poverty in most of the families. Please stay away from it” he requested the bridegrooms on this occasion.

Jayaraj and Rupa D’Souza Angelore,
