Mangaluru:  The case of advertisement seeking ‘spirit’ groom for a ‘spirit’ bride has come to a happy ending. The groom has been chosen from Bayaru near Kasaragod, and the spirit wedding (ghost wedding) is scheduled for the next “Aati” month.

Thirty years ago, a baby died at just one week old. The baby was not named and is now set to be part of a “ghost marriage.”

The search for a groom began with a newspaper ad seeking a “ghost/spirit groom” for a woman who died 30 years ago. This ad prompted a resident of Bayaru to contact the family. Over 30 other potential grooms’ families were also considered. Finally, the choice was made for the groom from Bayaru.

The ‘Spirit’ Engagement:

In this symbolic ceremony, the families of the deceased will perform the marriage rituals. Next Sunday, the groom’s family will visit the bride’s house in Puttur. The engagement will follow, and then the families will visit the groom’s house.

Community Response:

This event has sparked significant interest. Many people responded to the newspaper ad, and the story has been covered by various media outlets. It highlighted a common belief in Tulunadu and the need for ghost brides and grooms in many homes. The family involved hopes this event will raise awareness about this tradition.
