ALWAR: It was a wedding with many firsts — one that kept guests guessing. For starters, the baraat was the bride’s. And she rode on a chariot to the groom’s house. There was no priest or mahurat either, and vows solemnly sworn on the Constitution. Instead of accepting presents, the couple gave out gifts: books to set up a public library in their village. That’s not all. The wedding was plastic-free and guests went home with a copy of the Constitution and a sapling.

When Ajay Jatav, who works in a private company in Hyderabad, tied the knot with Babita in Karoli village, 20 km from Alwar city, the duo turned many traditions on their head. “Ajay and I wanted to rewrite some conventions to ensure gender equality. We meant to send social messages through our marriage. I’m happy our ideas were accepted by our families and now people are talking about it. I hope we have inspired more couples to do the same,” said bride Babita, who led her baraat.
