Sologamy For Kshama Bindu
Kshama Bindu, a Vadodara woman, aspires to become the first woman to opt for sologamy in India. Her decision has garnered mixed responses from netizens. She will be getting hitched to herself on June 11. Is it easy for her to take the decision? What hurdles is she facing?


The 24-year-old from Vadodara plans to register her marriage like any other couple. She firmly believes that if two people can get their wedding registered then she can also do so. She also plans to consult a lawyer to ensure she becomes a legally married woman in India.

Priest backs out

She doesn’t intend to hurt anyone’s religious sentiments so she has decided to change the venue of her wedding which was earlier in a temple. She had also roped in a priest who would have helped her solemnize the wedding but he also backed out. Now, she will play the wedding mantras on a tape, as per a report.
