As they say, weddings are made in heaven and this one was made in the hospital! If you have started your day on a low note, this story will bring a broad smile on your face. The groom is Md Shahnawaz Alam, who is a mechanical engineer working in Saudi Arabia’s Dammam. While the bride is a lawyer Heyra Javed, who works in a Hyderabad-based legal services unit.
Wedding of Md Shahnawaz Alam and Heyra Javed was supposed to take place at the United Palace in Beniapukur. Due to some medical emergency, lawyer Heyra Javed was rushed to the GD Hospital and Diabetes Institute. After a lot of tension, the groom got married to the bride in presence of 15 family members in the hospital itself.
Just before the wedding day, the bride complained of heavy stomach pain and started vomiting. She was diagnosed with intestinal obstruction and hence she was not discharged on her wedding day. The bride was decked up in red wedding lehenga and was shifted to the female ward. There was an IV channel on her hand. The Ryles tube was attached as well. In the presence of Qazi, the two got married in the hospital.
Bride’s cousin said that her brother in law is a real-life hero who got inspired by Shahid Kapoor from Vivaah who went ahead to marry a half-burnt girl in the hospital. She said, there is still humanity left in the world.
On Thursday, after her Ryles tube was removed, the newly-married Heyra told TOI: “I know everyone is comparing him to Shahid Kapoor from `Vivaah’. I am both happy and sad. I am happy because the wedding finally happened on the day it was scheduled. But I am sad that it didn’t happen the way it was supposed to.”
The couple had met each other after their families had arranged their marriage. The groom had flown down all the way from Dammam to his ancestral home in Dalkhola for marriage purpose. The bride had Ryles tube and hence it was quite difficult for her to say ‘Qubool Hai’ thrice. The family members strained their ears while she said those words in pain. Once Nikaah was over, the bride was shifted to the room while groom went to the hall to treat the guest with mutton biryani, shahi tukda and other dishes.
