No priest, no hymns: Odisha couple takes oath on Constitution to get married
Berhampur: This young Odisha couple is now the talk of the town for opting to get married in an unusual style.
No priest, no hymns, no auspicious time or extravagant celebrations. It was a low-key affair for Biplab and Anita, yet a memorable one.
Biplab Kumar and Anita took the marital vows on the Indian Constitution yesterday in the presence of guests and relatives. A blood donation camp was also organized to mark the occasion.
“I am a rationalist and do not believe in age-old religious practices. We kept it simple and got the marriage solemnized in a unique way,” said Biplab’s father Mohan Rao.
Including the newly-wed couple, the invitees also participated in the voluntary blood donation where as many as 36 units were collected.
Biplab (31) works for a pharmaceutical firm and Anita (23) is engaged as an auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM).
“We are happy the way marriage has been solemnized. It would be memorable for us,” the couple expressed.
Earlier on January 26 this year, a similar sort of marriage was held in the Southern Odisha town. Engineer Prithwik Misha and Political Science lecturer Mandakini Panda got married at the Saheed Laxman Nayak Community Hall with the Constitution of India as their witness.
