This is not a ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’. However, it is definitely a wedding that is meant to be seen. But the sad part is, the bride and groom cannot see each other and the same with most of the guests who attended their wedding as they were blind too.
In case you are wondering how both of them came together, well, it is because their love for the music matched.
Suraj, who hails from Gwalior and Goonja who is from Koriya, both were blind and fell in love at a music school in Uttar Pradesh and got married in Raipur on Wednesday night, 4th December.
This was one wedding that will be etched in the memory of the villagers and to make it more memorable the couple’s friends came forward and played music at their wedding. Not only that, but they were also dancing to their own tunes.
As per the TOI report, the couple met each other at Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Handicapped University in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh where they both went to learn music. Soon, they fell for each other but were worried whether their families would accept their match as they were blind and belonged to different castes. The best part is both the families agreed readily and it was only the couple’s happiness that mattered to them.
While Suraj is pursuing his degree in music and art, Goonja has already completed her B.Ed. Her parents also encouraged her to learn music.
On Wednesday, Suraj arrived with his ‘baraat’ for Goonja and villagers were so excited that they self-invited themselves and they were welcomed right in.
How beautiful it is that when you find the right person for yourself, everything else fades away, and the same happened in the case of this couple. Not able to see their partner, didn’t affect their love for each other and they have certainly found a way to bond with each other, in this case, it was music.
