When the orphanage found them, they were in poor health
Two Indian sisters who were orphaned at a young age and in a dying state got married on June 29, 2020.
The two sisters were residents at Lavkush Institute in Chopasni Housing Board, Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
They had lived at the orphanage ever since their mother died. Now, years later, they are married. Important figures in the city, as well as 60 children living at Lavkush Institute, attended the double wedding.
The two young women, Sonu and Basanti, married Jodhpur residents Priyesh and Gaurav, both of which are businessmen.
Important people like the Union Water Power Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and outgoing Mayor Ghanshyam Ojha blessed the two married couples.
Rajendra Parihar, the director of Lavkush Institute, explained the sisters’ mother had died when Sonu was one-and-a-half years old and Basanti was six months.
Their father had walked out on the family.
As a result, the two girls were orphaned. When the orphanage found them, they were in poor health and they believed that there was a low chance of survival.
However, they beat the odds and went on to have good educations.
Sonu completed a diploma at a Polytechnic College while Basanti has a degree.
Following the marriage of the Indian sisters, the institute stated that one condition that must be followed is that the in-laws must take care of Sonu and Basanti.
Rajendra explained that they have newspaper advertisements whenever a girl at the institution is ready to get married.
Interested people then contact the institute and provide their details. This includes their education and what they do for a living.
On the grooms of the two sisters, it was revealed that they set up the grocery business Kirana.
Rajendra checked that they were suitable by going to their shop. After that, he introduced the young men to Sonu and Basanti.
They spoke and after the consent of both sisters, the relationships were confirmed. The double wedding was eventually set for June 29.
Lavkush Institute is well known in Jodhpur for taking care and raising orphans.
A social worker named Bhagwan Singh Parihar established the institute in 1989 in order to raise orphans.
Since its establishment, they have taken care of 1,144 children and 20 girls have been married.
People who are unable to raise their children are left in a cradle outside the institute. Staff members take them in and are taken care of.
