The best of both worlds, that’s what we would say about this wedding. Mainly because it was a fusion of Chettiar & Gounder wedding cultures. The engagement ceremony was called Poo Mudithal in which the Groom’s family would make a very nice flower decoration for the bride’s hair and would present to her. This symbolizes that they are giving flower as an acceptance of the Groom’s Family taking the bride into their family which was quite interesting for us to see for the first time. Why a flower? Flower is the symbol of happiness and shows her beautifulness so that’s why they present her with the flower. The wedding was in Gounder style, but being said that the groom dressed in traditional Chettiar style which was quite interesting for us to see and also there was a function called Kummi Adhithal which was after the wedding. This shows the various understanding and diversity even within the Indian Culture. It was simple mesmerizing and beautiful.
Do you believe when they say “Match made in heaven”? Or do you simply think it’s a fairy tale? Well, we believed in it when we heard this couples love story. It all started when they actually met when they were 11 years old, yes 11 years old when they went to tuition class to make up for their studies like all the kids. But it was not love at first sight, it was rather fight at first sight. They tend to fight and fight until both of them have to be put in separate class so that the teacher can teach the class. This went on for two years until the finish their primary schooling, during which they were fighting and treated each other as arch enemy.
All things changed when they went to secondary school, fight at first sight changed to love at first sight, anger changed to love and they fell in love with each other. It was as though they knew they had feeling for each other and they were the better half’s of each other. The problem with their love story is that, the boy is from a different caste with the girl. The girl’s family is very strict about this, so when they in Form 3, the girl’s father got to know about their love story and like all the parents, they changed the girl’s school to Ipoh and told the boy not to disturb or contact the girl anymore. On top of that, they changed all the contact numbers and everything information pertaining the girl.
Time went on after which the girl was changed school in which both of them had no ways of communicating or contacting. The girl’s parents thought that they had won the fight but they didn’t know that they will wait for each other no matter what happens. They made a promise that they will wait for each other no matter what happens and that they will finish their studies first and continue to love each other no matter what happens. And that’s what they did; both of them studied and became very successful. She finished her studies and became an Accountant and he became an Electrical & Electronics Engineer.
The time came when the girl’s family were looking for a suitable bridegroom for her, and that’s when she told them that they are still in love, the whole family was shocked. But, all their efforts were of no avail when they knew that they simply can’t be separated and at last they agreed for the wedding. And that was the happiest moment for the couple because for the 14 years they were in love, they had to go through a lot of trouble, distance relationship, and just a lot of struggle to get to the point where they are now. So now the saying “Match Made in Heaven” truly exists.
