200 girls from different communities tie knot at mass wedding

Surat, Gujarat, Jan 10 (ANI): The visuals on your screen will leave you awe-struck. The small lighting huts are in fact marriage pandals at a mega mass marriage venue where two hundred and thirty six couples tied the nuptial knot.

But apart from its grandeur, what makes this mass marriage unique is that all the girls come from different religious backgrounds and are orphans. The marriage ceremonies were conducted according to the religions the couples belonged to.

Relatives and friends also joined in the celebrations to bless the newlyweds. The event was organized by a businessman, Mahesh Savani, who has married off more than 600 poor girls since 2008.

Savani spent about 1.04 million USD as he gave away jewellery and cash to the girls besides meeting all the marriage expenses. This simple yet strong story of communal harmony reinforces the fact that people in India are still bound by a common thread of brotherhood.
