Kanhangad (Kasaragod): A love story that bloomed during the deluge that devastated Kerala is going to culminate in marriage this week. Ravaneshwaram Makki native Binu (33) and Mavelikkara Thazhakkara native Deepthi (25) fell in love eight months ago and are entering the wedlock on Saturday.
Binu, who works as a sound engineer in Ganesh Light and Sound company in Periya, is son of Kanhangad Ravaneshwaram natives K. V. Ammalu and late T. Andy. Deepthi, a nurse in a private hospital in Ernakulam, is daughter of Thazhakkara native Mohanan and Usha.
Binu happened to reach Mavelikkara along with the WhatsApp group activists ‘Kanal Pattukoottam’ as part of flood relief works. Deepthi also was a member of the group. They visited Deepthi’s house for relief activities.
During a friendly chat with Deepthi’s family, somebody mentioned Binu remains unmarried even after 30 years. He told them that it is hard for boys in Kasaragod to get marriage proposals because girls prefer government employees and expats only.
Soon after this, Binu proposed Deepthi but she only smiled at him. However, Binu was totally stunned when Deepthi’s parents later told him that they are visiting Binu’s house in Kasaragod the next day. Thus both families proceeded with the proposal.
A 30-member group including Binu’s family and friends will set out from Ravaneshwaram to Mavelikkara on Friday. The wedding ceremony will take place at Vazhuvadi Subramanyaswamy temple in Mavelikkara.
