24-year-old Kshama Bindu is all set for her wedding on June 11, with everything in place except a groom. She’s getting married to herself, reported Free Press Journal.
The wedding as per report will be performed in traditional style, including pheras, sindoor, and other traditional rituals.
The only things missing will be a groom and a baraat. This is probably Gujarat’s first self-marriage or sologamy.
“I never wanted to get married. But I did want to become a bride. So I decided to marry myself,” said Kshama to TOI.
“Maybe I am the first to set an example of self-love in our country,” said the young, private firm employee.
“Self-marriage is a commitment to be there for yourself and unconditional love for oneself. It’s also an act of self-acceptance. People marry someone they love. I love myself and hence this wedding,” explained Kshama.
She realises that some people might find self-marriages irrelevant. “But what I am actually trying to portray is that women matter,” she said.
She added that her parents are open-minded and accepting of her wedding.
Kshama has penned down five vows for the wedding which will be solemnised at a temple in Gotri.
She’s also planned a two-week honeymoon in Goa for herself.
