Swayamvaram’ to be held for differently abled - MADURAI

A ‘swayamvaram’ (selection of spouse) for the differently abled will be held here on August 17 in which persons without any disabilities can also participate. It is being organised jointly by Federation of Tamil Nadu Differently Abled Associations and Shree Geetha Bhavan Trust, Chennai, which will host the event.

Addressing a press meet here on Sunday, general secretary (Southern) of the Federation S. Boopathy said this initiative, which was first taken up in 2009, would help the differently abled lead a normal life. The couples would also be provided medical counselling, gifts and substantial assistance besides guidance during the first few years of their marriage.

“This event is being held in five cities this year. We are providing this service free of cost and without involving any middleman. Caste is no bar for this swayamvaram,” he noted.

The selected couples would be given counselling by professionals from the field of law as well as gynaecologists, psychologists and general physicians later, and the marriages would be performed in Chennai on November 6, and registered under the Hindu Marriages Act and the Special Marriages Act.

Those willing to participate should collect the form from South Zone Office of the Federation of Tamil Nadu Differently Abled Associations, 17w/11 and 12, Veerapuzhavar Colony, Jawaharpuram, Madurai, or S. Boopathy, B.69/13, Racecourse Colony, Madurai, and submit it by August 16. Shree Geetha Bhavan Trust would provide gold thali chain and bear the marriage expenditure. Further information could be obtained from Mr. Boopathy at 96004 50676 or K.J.T. Pushparaj at 99422 17941.
