Interracial weddings are always the beautiful events to watch and get involved as you get proud to be a gathering of mixed culture. One such event happened in the kendrapara district of Odisha, India when an Indian man married to a Nigerian girl. The blindian couple who fell in love at Nigerian and decided to get married in India.
When 30-year old Peace Ugorji Nkechi first met Odia lad Amiya Ranjan Parida, little did she know that their relationship would last a lifetime. She was working as a Quality Control Manager at a pharmaceutical company, where Amiya was hired as an engineer.
Like a perfect Bollywood script, they met, became friends and soon love blossomed. Soon, Amiya proposed her and Ugorji brought the matter before her family members. After their consent, Amiya’s parents were approached who also gave their nod.
Amiya and Ugorji flew back to India and solemnized their wedding in Kendrapara district, in the presence of the family members. Since Ugorji’s family failed to arrive due to visa issues, one of the acquaintances of Amiya’s family performed the ‘kanyadaan’ ritual. Thus the villagers at Kendrapara could witness a Blindian wedding as per Hindu rituals.
