KOTTAYAM: Even during a period of distress and anxiety, Sujatha is having hopes for a new life full of hues and security. Sujatha, of the Mahatma Colony at Amayannoor, set off her journey to the venue of her wedding on Thursday from a relief camp set up at the Government LP School, Ayarkunnam, for the flooded neighbourhood.
Sujatha tied the knot with Santhosh of Valakkiriparambil House, a native of Ponthanpuzha near Manimala at 11 am in the Parish Hall at Mukkada. The family has been making preparations for the wedding when the house situated in a low-lying area was inundated. Following this, the family moved to the relief camp on Saturday along with their neighbours in the colony. Learning about the wedding from the inmates, Navajeevan trustee P U Thomas who had arrived for food distribution in the camp persuaded them to conduct the wedding on the fixed date itself. With his support, the inmates made all arrangements for the wedding in the camp.
The bride’s family arranged a treat for their relatives and inmates of the camp at 9 am. The wedding expenses were taken up by the Navajeevan Trust considering the weak financial background of the family.
As many as hundred people, including the inmates of the camp, took part in the wedding.
