Marriage Without Bridegroom Performed in Nepal
According to Government-owned Gorkhapatra national daily published on 29 April, a Juna Nepali of Amarapuri village in Nawalparasi district (Nepal) has married a Bhim Bahadur Hitang though he was in Dubai at the time of marriage. A marriage without the presence of the bridegroom has been seen as an unusual happening in Nepal. Juna and Bhim used to have occasional conversation on telephone. They agreed to marry each other and fixed the date.
The Gorkhapatra has also quoted Juna’s uncle Shankar Bahadur Nepali as saying that all marriage rituals were performed and gifts and wishes were given to the bride. After the marriage, bridegroom Bhim is said to have telephoned a local journalist from Dubai stating that he accepted his bride and that he was looking forward to a happy family life with her when he would come back to Nepal.
