Ahmedabad, Feb 19: “Marriages are made in heaven, but maintained on earth” saying is often used to encourage, assist and provide some practical ways that couples as well as those who are considering this holy union, may employ to enrich their marriages and thus stay together for a lifetime.  However, when it comes to reality the less privileged sections of society finds it immensely difficult to get their children married. On such occasions the idea of mass marriage is a boon.

In one such instance, 1200 weddings (Nikah) of Muslim girls and boys are going to take place at the River Front Event Centre, Sabarmati River Front, Paldi in Ahmedabad. This mass marriage function will be held on 21st February, at 4 p.m. 500 couples to get married are from Ahmedabad alone while others are from the other parts of Gujarat.
