Kerala Couple Reaches Flooded Hall in Cooking Vessel

Alappuzha: Love knows no bounds, not even nature’s fury. Sailing along in a large cooking vessel through the flooded streets, a health worker couple from the district beat all odds to exchange their wedding vows on Monday here, keen not to miss the special occasion to usher in a new chapter in their life.

The couple’s love story came as a pleasant news for the rain-battered Kerala, which has seen tragedy unfold in the last two days that was marked by the despair of death, with bodies being found following the heavy downpour and landslides.

For the newlyweds– Akash and Aishwarya— a large aluminium vessel doubled up as some kind of a boat to transport them to the venue where the wedding was slated to take place.

Akash, speaking to media, said theirs was an inter-caste relationship which was opposed by an uncle of Aishwarya and therefore, they had a registered marriage on October 5.

Subsequently, they decided to get married as per Hindu rites without much delay, but most of the temples near his home at Thakazhy here were accepting bookings 15 days in advance.

Finally, they found a temple at Thalavady here which agreed to host the ceremony on Monday, he said, adding that it was supposed to be a small event attended only by close friends and family.

However, thanks to their journey in a cooking vessel to the wedding hall, now everyone knows about the marriage, Akash said, excited about how the entire episode turned out and the fame that has come with it.

He said on Sunday someone from the temple had called him up asking whether he was willing to postpone the wedding as the venue was filled with water.
