Solan/Hamirpur, May 9

No baraat, groom Mukesh, his father Balwant Singh and their driver Gautam drove from Navada village in Uttarakhand to the bride’s home at Khodri Majri village in Paonta Sahib to solemnise the marriage without fanfare amid the pandemic.

Likewise, groom Nirmal Sharma and his parents drove to the bride’s village, about 15 km away, from Dhamrol village in Bhoranj subdivision of Hamirpur district amid the ‘corona curfew,’ earning praise from former Bhoranj MLA Dr Anil Dhiman. Talking to The Tribune, Sharma said: “People must shun social gatherings. This is the only way we can curb the spread of Covid-19.”

Under the new government guidelines, a maximum of 20 persons are allowed at marriage functions. Penalty has been levied on seven marriage organisers at various villages, including Khodowala, Surajpur, Singhpura, Shyampur, Salwala and Satuan, in the past few days for violating Covid curbs.
