In a first of its kind, a woman from Gujarat will marry herself on June 11. The 24-year-old Kshama Bindu from Vadodara in Gujarat will tie the knot with herself and the wedding will feature everything — from the ‘pheras’ and wedding vows to a Goa honeymoon, but won’t have a groom or ‘baraat’.
Notably, this would be India’s first solo wedding, or sologamy. According to a TOI report, Kshama said, “I never wanted to get married. But I did want to become a bride. So I decided to marry myself.”
“Self-marriage is a commitment to be there for yourself and unconditional love for oneself. It’s also an act of self-acceptance. People marry someone they love. I love myself and hence, this wedding,” explained Kshama, who works for a private firm.
When asked about her parents’ reaction, she said that they blessed her to go ahead with the wedding. Kshama has prepared five vows for the wedding that will be held at a temple in Gotri.
