Few events in our society shine a mirror on its inherent complexities more than the miracle that is a “mass marriage”.

In a me-too culture teeming with meaningless, ostentatious weddings lubricated by dowry, the fact that so many are willing sit in line and buck the trend is proof that the desire to do what is right is a universal human trait; and one that goes deep down defying the usual urban/rural, rich/poor, literate/illiterate stereotypes.
