Koraput, Nov 12: Two visually impaired orphans have tied their nuptial knot in Koraput on Saturday. The two sweethearts with only one eye have pledged to go ahead in their lives with happiness.
The incident came to the fore at Debatahanjara village under Tikarpara block in Koraput, while a visually impaired orphan Madhu Krisani married his lovebird Lima, another orphan who is having one healthy eye, according to tribal rituals.
Sources said, Madhu Krishani, a native of Debatahanjara was born healthy. He lost both of his eyes at five being affected with smallpox. Subsequently, he lost his parents one after the other at an early age.
However, he withstood all adverse situations and faced the challenges with patience. He stood firm when he attended his boyhood and managed to have two square meals a day.
At the same time, he continued his elementary, secondary, and higher secondary education. Having no eyes at all, he passed the +2 Arts examination as a normal student. He applied for the post of Para-teacher but could not succeed to get it for his lower scores in the Council examination.
Meanwhile, he came to know about the sorrows and sufferings of Lima. Lima was both physically and mentally tortured with her two-year boy, by her in-laws after she was handed over to a man of Kolkata.
He ventured to Kolkata and rescued her from the in-laws’ house and brought them to Koraput with her son. After taking the approval of the tribal community he formally married Lima in the presence of locals and relatives on Saturday.
Post marriage, Madhu assured her a happy life and so the bride to the groom. At the same time, the newly-wed couple pledged to go ahead in their lives with one eye and one heart for good.
