A Chopper Ride To In-Laws’ Home For Two UP Brides
If you were a bride-to-be, what’s the best gift you could ask for? This week, we saw two brides getting a unique surprise gift – flying off to their in-laws’ house in a private chopper.
The two sisters from a remote town in Aligarh got married to two brothers in Mathura. They bid goodbye to their parents on a helicopter, following their wedding in Aligarh on Tuesday (Feb 20).
The helicopter ‘doli’ was arranged for the ‘vidaai’. Thousands of visitors from far-off villages came to witness the royal send-off of the brides
The women, Meera and Rekha, hail from Badhia village in Aligarh. They had the time of their lives flying in a private chopper, something that both of them had never imagined they would do someday.
“I wanted to bring my daughters-in-law in a way that they will never forget,” said Shivaji, the father-in-law, India Times reported. Shivaji is a farmer and had gathered around Rs 3 lakh to arrange for the chopper to take the newly married daughters–in-law to the grooms’ town.
The couples were grandly greeted in Mathura too. “I never thought so many people would come to welcome my daughters-in-law to our house,” added Shivaji.
Meera got married to Kushal Pal, who works with the UP Police. Rekha’s husband Kaushlendra is a junior engineer at a private firm.
The girls’ father, Banwari Lal, who is a subedar in the Army, said, “We are simple people and do not have money to do anything extravagant for our daughters. I am happy that they are married into a family that cares so much for them.”
