Love conquers all: Russian man marries Ukrainian girlfriend in Dharamshala

By Our Correspondent

Dharmshala: It is rightly said that love knows no reason, no boundary, no distance. The maxim stands true to the Russian-Ukrainian couple who tied the nuptial knot thousands of miles away from the two conflicting nations in India. The Russian man, Sergei Novikov married his Ukrainian girlfriend Elona Bramoka in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, on Tuesday. 

Interestingly, the foreign couple tied the knot at the Divya Ashram Kharota near Dharamshala according to Hindu traditions.  Locals who attended the wedding performed all the rituals and danced to traditional Himachali folk music, making the newly-wed couple feel at home. Kangri dham arrangement was made for the guests, according to a report in the Times of India.

The social media users enthusiastically greeted the event between two people of two warring nations mostly congratulating the couple for proving that love has the power to conquer all.

They had been in a relationship for the last two years and decided to get married this year, despite the war, choosing Dharamshala as their wedding destination. They had been living in Dharamkot, close to Dharamshala for the past year, Pandit Sandeep Sharma of Divya Ashram Kharota told TOI.

“Our pandit Raman Sharma solemnized their marriage and told them about the importance of marriage as per the traditions of the Sanatan Dharma,” he added. The marriage rituals were performed by Vinod Sharma and his family, including Bramoka’s ‘kanyadan’, according to the Times of India report. Foreign tourists living in Dharamkot also joined in the ceremony and enjoyed the rituals.

Russia and Ukraine have been engaged in fighting for the last five months with deaths and destruction reported from both sides. The war has no end in sight, at least for now, even as defense experts are raising serious apprehensions if efforts are not made to halt the war.
