Gujarat, May 16: The 27-year-old Ajay Barot's long standing wish to have a grand wedding celebration, just like his cousin has came true but his wedding had a person missing - a bride for the groom. Groom’s family had decided to fulfil his dream by giving him a lavish wedding, but sadly, it was not possible for them to find a match for Ajay. Hence family decided to have the wedding without a bride but made sure that all Gujarati rituals and traditions were followed.
Mehendi and sangeet ceremonies were held previous night which was attended by close friends and relatives. Next day, Ajay was decked up in ethnic wear-- a golden sherwani, beautiful pink headgear and red and white rose garland. A grand wedding procession was held after the groom sat on a horse. Around 200 people, who were part of the procession, danced to the tune of Gujarati music and drum beats.
800 people attended the wedding in a community hall situated close to their residence. Ajay's father Vishnu Barot told "My son was diagnosed with learning disability and lost his mother at an early age. He used to enjoy the wedding procession of other people and asked us about his marriage. We were unable to answer his question as it was not possible to find a match for him. Thus, after talking to all my family members, I decided to arrange a wedding procession for him so he feels like his wedding is being held and his dream is getting accomplished. I am very happy that I fulfilled my son's dream without thinking bout what society would say."
That is just lovely. Breaking the traditions for love
