Rituals in sign language helps deaf, mute bride tie the knot – Times of India

3 women from Nari Sanrakshan Gruh got married on Friday

Rajkot: Though Diwali is still a few days away, the atmosphere at the Nari Sanrakshan Gruh on Yagnik road in Surat turned festive on Friday.
The inmates and officials took part in the rituals like mandap, mehndi and pithi as three girls, including one deaf and mute, living at the centre got married as per Hindu rituals.
The marriage ceremonies were attended by district collector Arun Mahesh Babhu, district judge Utkarsh T Desai, additional district judge K D Dave, senior civil judge R S Rajput, civil judge M A Kaushik, district development officer Dev Choudhary and superintendent of police Balram Meena.
Janaksinh Gohil, district child and women development officer, said that a committee shortlisted the partners for these girls. “If the girl and boy both want to get married then we collect all the details about the groom’s family and his profession and submit it to the department of social justice in Gandhinagar. The marriages are organized once we get the green signal from Gandhinagar,” Gohil said.
