Matrimonial bliss for a hundred couples

A total of one hundred couples tied the knot in a grand celebration at Fortress Stadium this Sunday. Among them, 77 were Muslim couples while the other remaining 33 were Christians. It was the best moment for the couples, their families, friends and relatives who had gathered together as one with no differentiation among people from two different religions.

You can read more here, here, here & also here.

These people usually come from a very poor background where it is a matter of life and death for parents to get their daughters married in a respectable way. Such initiatives are taking pace with a number of charities arranging such functions every year.

Well, putting financial restraints aside, will not it still be great idea to get married with a few friends in such a grand joint celebration and sharing all the fun & happiness together. It should be fun as well as saving of excessive, unnecessary expenses, innit!

    jeevay banrraaa!!!
    Dammit Im already married, I wanted a mass wedding
    we should glam it up a bit so its more widely acceptable!
    Right now the target audience/ market is the lower class, we should have elite mass weddings too! Two extremes!

    Umraan Hazaariaann!

    that is a really good way to help people…as one of the biggest stress that eats up poor people is how to get their children married n a respectable place…its really great!
