India’s first Sologamy marriage of 24-year-old girl Kshama Bindu from Gujarat came as a surprise to most of the Indians. She married herself in the presence of very few close friends at her house on Wednesday.

Hindu rituals and customs

This Gujarati girl, married herself by playing the marriage mantras on a Bluetooth speaker. Furthermore, she wore wedding garlands herself and took vows. Added to that, she married with all the rituals and customs of a Hindu wedding, which she was very particular about. Moreover, Bindu has planned herself ‘Pheras’ and honeymoon to Goa too.

What Netizens say?

Netizens are mocking at her and the pictures posted on social media. She trolled for her stupidity, say many. Some say that she is just doing it for publicity. Many netizens suggested her to go for mental assistance.

One person asked “what will happen when she wants divorce?”

Another netizen on Twitter asked, “Is there any scope for domestic violence?”

What is Sologamy?

Sologamy means a commitment to yourself. It need not necessarily be singled on or celibacy. However, Sologomay or self-marriage, is a symbolic ceremony where one commits to maintain a meaningful, deep, and loving relationship with oneself.

However, Sologamy is growing popular in recent years. It is because of our fast-paced lives, in which we are losing ourselves.

Purpose of Sologamy

We need to love ourselves before we love others. This concept has become very common now. The concept of self-love is being given more importance and is preached to be the basis for winning relationships and fulfilling lives.

The ceremony of self-marriage can be just a gesture. It is not bound by any law, as nothing would change even after the ceremony. There won’t be a change in the marital status on any legal documents. There is no paperwork involved and since it has no merit in the eyes of the law. Later on, if the person changes his/her mind and marries with somebody else it won’t be bigamy.
