[VIDEO] Young man falls in love with a beggar girl while distributing food, marries her
This unique story is from Kanpur, India.
In India, a unique love marriage took place in Kanpur city, amid the lockdown, which made us believe that humanity is still alive.
Anil, a young man employed as a driver in the Kakadeo area, went out to distribute food among the needy as per his employer’s instructions. While distributing food on the pavement, he set his eyes on a girl, Neelam who was begging on the street and fell in love. Soon after, the couple got married.
After their wedding, an Indian news outlet interviewed the couple.
Telling her life story, the bride said:
My father died a long time ago, and my mother suffered a paralysis stroke. My brother and sister-in-law used to beat me up, and one day they threw my mother and me out of the house. I was left without a roof over my head and minimal resources. So, I started begging to make ends meet.
Neelam also described how she met Anil. She said that after they came across each other, they started talking. As time went by, he got to know about her situation. Eventually, one day, Anil convinced her to give up begging. From that point onwards, they started interacting daily and developed a friendship that blossomed into love.
Anil told the reporters:
I admired her courage and guts. She was not only fending for herself but also for her paralyzed mother.
When Anil and Neelam truly fell in love and decided that they wanted to spend their lives together, Anil shared his feelings with his employer.
Anil’s employer, Lalta Prasad, supported the couple and convinced Anil’s family to allow him to marry Neelam. Following this, Anil proposed Neelam, and the couple tied the knot amid the lockdown.
Lalta Prasad started to provide the newlywed couple with twice the resources so that they could live a good life. Moreover, he also guided Anil and asked him to take great care of Neelam and her mother because the lockdown had made their lives much worse.
