wedding-

AMBALAPPUZHA: A bride's house was flooded in heavy rain and a stage had to be set upon a junkar for marriage. The wedding of Athira, daughter of Kunjumon and Ramani of Arun Nivas in Thakazhi's Thennady, and Akhili, son of Chellappan and Chellamma of Koyippally house in Ennakkad in Chengannur took place on a junkar yesterday.

The couple was originally scheduled to get married on May 22 at the Thakazhi Panchayat Community Hall. Following the Covid surge, the area fell into the critical containment zone and the venue was moved to the bridal house on June 5 for the wedding. But the house and surroundings were flooded in the last few days of torrential rains.

Akhil, who works in Dubai, is on leave and his marriage cannot be postponed again. If he doesn't return once the travel ban is lifted, his job could be in jeopardy. The astrologer said that if Athira does not get married in 'Edavam' of this year, it cannot take place for a year.

This is how the girl's relatives thought about renting a junkar used to to ferry tipper lorries carrying across the river at nearby Kainakari. The groom's relatives were also ready for such a marriage and a junkar was rented at a daily rent of Rs 15,000.

On the banks of the Pampa river, necessary decorations were made upon the junkar. The wedding took place at 12 noon yesterday. Ten each from the part of the bride and groom took part in the marriage.
