Sanjay Kumar too had met the same fate and landed in the same relief camp. After spending over ten days in the camp they gathered strength to face the tragedy that had befallen them. Their sorrow brought them closer and love blossomed out of friendship. On September 17, a wedding was organised in the relief camp. They tied the nuptial knot in presence of other camp inmates who acted as the 'baaratis'.
It was, however, a spartan affair. There were no sweets in the menu.
But it was more than compensated when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar dropped by on Sunday, Sep 21 and blessed the couple.
After showering 'aashirvad' on the newly-weds, Mr Kumar asked the District Magistrate of Madhepura to extend financial assistance to them to help the couple start a new life.
