NEW DELHI: Thirty one differently-abled couples from different parts of the country were wedded in a mass marriage ceremony organised by a charitable society in a west Delhi locality here today.
Most of the young men and women who tied the knot, had met during the course of free of cost corrective surgery at the society’s Jaipur hospital, said Prashant Agarwal, president of ‘Naryan Sewa Sansthan’ that hosted the event.
51 altars were set up at the marriage site in Punjabi Bagh. Families and friends of the brides and grooms joined the celebrations amid gaiety.
The couples were presented household items at the time of ‘Kanyadaan’ ritual.
A total of 51 couples, including 31 physically challenged ones, from Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, were married.
Earlier, the organisation had organised a mass marriage in which 92 pairs were wedded at Ramlila ground in last June, Agarwal added. (AGENCIES)
