NEW DELHI: Work from home is the new normal around the globe amid the Covid pandemic but an Indian groom has garnered a lot of attention as he was spotted using a laptop at his wedding while the guests wait.
Couples in the second most populous state, who seem determined to get hitched amid all the restrictions, started doing things ‘out of the box’ as earlier a Covid positive duo was spotted marrying in a hospital while donning PPE Kits and another couple chartered the whole flight to get reception with all the family members.
Following the bandwagon of bizarre marriage events, another one has surfaced in recent days and is doing rounds all over the internet. Local media initially reported that the ‘workaholic’ groom, all donned in traditional wedding attire, was spotted working on a laptop on his wedding day.
Here’s the clip:
The man seems unaware of guests and relatives spotted finishing the work while the pandit [a Hindu priest] can be seen waiting for the groom to finish so he can start rituals.
As the clip goes viral on the internet, many social media users also find the bride’s reaction amusing as when the camera panned across the hall to capture, she can be seen bursting into laughter while watching his beau using laptop on their special day.
Many of the Indian news channels also covered the event without checking the facts or getting the viral groom on board. The whole incident, as presented initially, turned out to be a dud as the members who attended the function later trashed the claims. The groom was just trying to set up a video call so that other people can attend the join their special event virtually amid the Covid pandemic, eyewitnesses said.
Earlier this month, a clip of an Indian bride typing away at her laptop at her wedding went viral. In the video, the bride can be seen wearing traditional attire sitting next to her beau. The workaholic girl was spotted taking a phone call with her eyes glued to the laptop screen!
