COVID diaries: Bridge connecting TN & Kerala becomes new hotspot for inter-state weddings

As the country fights the second wave of coronavirus, big fat weddings have taken a backseat due to restrictions imposed by the state governments. This doesn’t stop couples from getting married, in fact after the video of the couple getting married on a plane went viral, now a bridge connecting Tamil Nadu and Kerala has become the new hotspot for inter-state weddings.

As per reports, a river across the river Chinnar that separates Kerala and Tamil Nadu has become the new destination for weddings and a total of 11 marriages have been solemnized there during the last lockdown.

Unnikrishnan, a local of Marayoor Idukki in Kerala, married Thangamayil, a local of Batlagundu in Dindigul Tamil Nadu at the bridge. To escape COVID restrictions as Kerala has made it mandatory for all visitors to have a Covid negative certificate, which is quite expensive, the family decided to conduct the wedding at the bridge.

The function was overseen by the officials from both states’ police, health, forest, and excise departments, in the absence of the priest. The rituals began with the bride producing her covid negative certificate and stepped across the bridge, followed by the groom.

The bride’s and groom’s families stood on either side of the bridge and blessed the couple, as the couple tied knot.
