150 couples tie the nuptial knot in mass marriage ceremony in Madhya Pradesh
Bhopal, April 22 (ANI): As many as 150 couples tied the nuptial knot in a mass marriage ceremony organized to fight the menace of dowry in Madhya Pradesh. The ceremony took place on the occasion of ‘Akshay Tritya’. It is traditionally believed that any venture initiated on this day is bound to bring success, joy and luck. The mass marriage was organized by a social organization, Akhil Bharatiya Pal Mahasabha (ABPM), with an aim to send across the message of ‘save the daughter’ and ‘educate the society’. Mass marriages have been accepted by the society and people have set examples by spending the dowry money on educating their children and for the family’s welfare, added Pal. A groom-to-be, Ratan Pal, said dowry was a blot on the society.
