Wish to spread the message of equality in the society
Normally we see groom takes out his marriage procession to reach the bride house to marry her. But a bride in Vadodara change the tradition and took out her marriage procession to marry the groom. The procession moves in the village and later the couple tied the knot on the auspicious occasion of Vasant Panchmi.
Prachi Brahmbhatt completed her graduation and married to a engineer youth Vivek in a big ceremony in Vadodara. Before the marriage probably for the first time the procession of the bride was taken out in the Gotri area to spread a message of equality in the society. People in big numbers including women joined the procession and the marriage ceremony.
“It’s a proud moment for me as my father changed the years old tradition to give his daughter the moment to cherish. He took out the marriage procession just like of the groom and spread the message of equality,” said Prachi.
Bride’s cousin brother Umang Brahmbhatt said their family never compare boy and girl and always see them as equal. There is a wish of his uncle to takes out the bride procession before her marriage and we fulfill the same. We wish the others take some inspiration from this as give the equal status to girls in the families.
