Hyderabad, May 11 (UNI) It was a dream come true for 25 couples, who never dreamt of getting married in such a manner today, that too, in the presence of over 25,000 people who came from far off places to bless the newly-wed couples.
The happiest of them were the couple's parents who never dreamt their sons and daughters getting married in such a befitting manner that too without spending a single rupee.
The Prabhandak Committee, Gurudwara Saheb Barambala, conducted mass marriage of 25 couples under one umbrella in the presence of Punj Pyaras Singh Saheb Bhai Ram Singhji of takhat Sachkhand Sri Hazur Sahib, Nanded, Maharashtra.
The brides and bridegrooms hailed from Hyderabad, Karimnagar, Hanamkonda, Nizamabad, Aurangabad, Bidar and other places.
The ''Samuhik Vivaha Samagam'' (mass marriages) started at 0900 hrs and continued till 1300 hrs. All the bridegrooms seated on horses were taken in a colourful baraat.
The most heartening part was that all the Sikh Gurudwaras in Andhra Pradesh extended wholehearted support for the successful conduct of marriages.
Various Gurudwara Committees and individuals presented household articles to the newly-married couples, a release here said.
