Mangalore, Feb 16: A young man and woman from Udupi
district got married under the supervision of Sri Rama Sena at Saravu
Sri Mahaganapati temple, after the parents of both of them resented
their decision and opposed the relationship.
 
21-year-old
Shobith and Geetha of the same age, entered wedlock in a simple,
traditional ceremony in the presence of Sri Rama Sena activists. 
Shobith belongs to scheduled caste, while the girl is from Vishwakarma
community. Shobith is a resident of Paniyur and Geetha, from
Mudarangadi in Udupi District.
 
“We love each other since the last two and half years”, confessed the couple. 

Shobith, a student from Udupi, is studying Bachelor of Computer Applications course, while Geetha works in a private firm.
 
“My
parents are totally opposed to this marriage. When we approached my
parents with the proposal, they registered a complaint against me in
the police station. As a result,   I was sent to remand home a few
years back, “Geetha said.

Geetha lives in a hostel in Manipal, as she has been expelled from
her home. Parents of both the lovers are strongly against this
marriage, and Shobith’s parents not only dissuaded him from marrying
the girl, but also warned him to shelve his plan.
 
“We planned
to marry on February 14 with the help of Sri Rama Sena, as per their
call, but when we contacted them, their leaders were not available. So
we decided to marry today,” said Shobith.
 
“We had two options
before us, either marrying each other or committing suicide, but Sri
Rama Sena members gave us life,” he added.

“Sri Rama Sena members have assured us of finding out suitable residence and jobs,” said Geetha.

Sri Rama Sena members, who were present there, said that it was not
a  forcible marriage, and that the  couple  contacted them with a
request to assist them to get married to each other.
