Odisha Couple Gets Married By Taking Oath Of Indian Constitution
Deviating from traditional wedding, a couple from Berhampur city in Odisha got their marriage solemnised by taking an oath on the Indian Constitution.
Thirty one-year-old Biplab Kumar, an employee of a pharmaceutical firm, married 23-year-old Anita, an Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANM), on Sunday in the presence of their family members, relatives and guests.
Biplap and Anita took their vows on a copy of the Indian Constitution and organised a blood donation camp to mark the occasion. Many of the guests also took part in the blood donation camp.
Retired government employee Bidyut Prabha Rath administered the oath to the newlywed couple.
"Our marriage was solemnised without matching of horoscopes or chanting of hymns. Everyone should avoid dowry. Simple marriages are eco-friendly because there are no crackers or loud music. In our marriage, we avoided the 'baratis'. Everyone should donate blood for a noble cause," Bilap said.
Anita said she was happy the way the marriage was solemnised. "I am happy that I started my new life with the noble cause of organising a blood donation camp," she said.
Some 36 units of blood were collected on the occasion.
