Udupi, Apr 11: As an ideal to society where caste discrimination is
prevalent, a rare form of inter-caste wedding took place at Mukyaprana
Guru Raghavendra Mandir, Jalanjaru, near Kaup here, on Friday April 9.
A young man from upper caste Brahmin family tied knot with a Devadiga
community girl, in the presence of both the family members, putting
aside all the conservative rules.
The married couple, Ramamurthy Bhat and Latha are residents of
Kemmundel Kaup. Ramamurthy is working as an electrician and Latha is
employed in a private company. The five years of eternal love between
the two resulted in wedding after members from both the families gave
Ramamurthy was able to convince his family members without much
effort. He said that their easy permission to the wedding was quite
surprising to him. "In future, we will live happily respecting each
other's casts", he added
Latha is also very pleased with the way the wedding proceedings have
taken place with the blessings and well wishes from both the family
Almost all the relatives of the couple made it to the wedding
ceremony. The friends of Ramamurthy were especially supportive and
celebrated the occasion with joy.
Subrahmanya Acharya, priest who performed the rituals of the marriage,
said that there is a shortage of girls in Brahmin community and well
settled but less educated boys in the community are not finding
suitable match. Hence such weddings gain more importance.
He also added that inter- caste marriages are not so opposed in the
community as it was in the earlier days which is a good sign.
Madhava Aithal, K P Acharya, Manohar Rao, Nagarthna Rao were among the
seniors from Brahmin community who blessed the couple on the occasion.
