Love knows know boundary, proves Ji Hao, a Chinese woman who recently tied knot with an Indian man Satyarth Mishra.
The woman arrived in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur along with her parents to marry her long term boyfriend.
The two met at Sheridon University in Canada, five years ago when both of them were students.
Since then, the friendship grew and turned into love. The couple decided to get hitched after persuading their respective parents.
The marriage took place according to Indian rituals on February 2 in Madhya Pradesh which is Satyarth’s hometown.
Earlier the bride’s parents flew to India, from China on January 29 when the couple got engaged.
The wedding would have perhaps gone unnoticed, had it not been amid the Coronavirus breakout in China that affected over 300 lives.
It kept the Madhya Pradesh health department officials on their toes since the bride and her family arrived in Mandsaur for it on Wednesday.
A team of five to six doctors and paramedical staff has been medically examining the family members since they arrived in the town.
“Though they do not have any symptoms of the coronavirus, we have been doing this as a precautionary measure.
The moment we see any symptom, we will admit them to the hospital,” said Dr Mishra, a civil surgeon.
He added the family members and relatives very cooperative and did not get annoyed over their everyday checkups as part of a protocol. “In fact, they appreciate it.”
The couple was seen dancing jubilantly to Indian tunes at the engagement they had been eagerly waiting for. The excitement of marriage was clearly visible on their faces.
Members of the two families, although distinct from each other in nationality, race and religion expressed immense delight and acceptance for the relationship.
They also planned for a ceremony in China, but the plan was called off amid the Corona-virus breakout.
The couple is set to return to Canada after the wedding and Ji Hao’s parents would then head back to China.
