An Indian wedding went ahead despite the curfew, however, it was without a pundit.
The Coronavirus resulted in a nationwide lockdown with curfews in a bid to stop the spread of the virus. As a result, many social events for citizens have been postponed.
Even weddings have been postponed but some people are finding ways to go ahead with them.
One marriage took place in the town of Shajapur, Madhya Pradesh. It was an improvised ceremony where there were only a few guests and some social distancing. There was also no pundit.
Bhavna got married to Chandan. The newly married couple explained that they had made a lot of preparations but due to COVID-19, their arrangements were ruined.
They were initially upset but they decided to go ahead with the wedding, but with extra precautions.
Bhavna and Chandan took part in some elements of the procession.
Seeing this, both families knew that they could not stop the ceremony. Deciding that the marriage would go ahead, they made sure that necessary adjustments were made so that the curfew was not breached.
Chandan’s baraat procession only had five people and they all kept their distance.
When the procession turned up at the bride’s house, only the bride and her family were there. The neighbours witnessed the procession from their own homes.
The pundit did not turn up due to the lockdown. Instead, an improvised ceremony went ahead.
