Belonging to a farmer’s family in Umbarda Bazaar, Amravati district, Maharashtra, Abhay completed his degree in B.Tech from IIT Delhi and Priti acquired the same education from SGGS College. The duo was dumbstruck on discovering the yearly wedding expenditure and planned to dedicate their wedlock to various noble deeds.

Having spent a total of approximately 3 lakhs, the money was distributed to families of 10 such farmers who committed suicide due to financial pressure. They also helped 5 libraries in Amravati to increase their availability of books by donating INR 55,000.

What intrigued the nation was that instead of having flower decorations and chandeliers, there were inspirational posters on the walls. Along with that, songs were substituted by strong quotes and speeches by different influencers, friends and family. The menu of the wedding was kept absolutely simple to ensure that there is no wastage of funds.
