Groom pedals to bride's house in UP's Pratapgarh

ALLAHABAD: A novel initiative to spread consciousness about surroundings conservation left the natives of Ibrahimpur, Pure Kharag Rai and adjoining villages in UP's Pratapgarh district wondering in amazement on Sunday afternoon, after they witnessed a 'baraat' (wedding ceremony procession) - together with the groom - pedalling all the technique to the bride's place on bicycles.

Around two dozen 'baraatis' (marriage birthday celebration individuals), together with the groom, lined round two-kilometre distance from Pure Kharag Rai to Ibrahimpur village of Bojhi gram panchayat in Mandhata block on bicycles to reach the marriage venue.

Many among the crowd have been willing to capture the pictures and movies of the original 'baraat' on their mobiles as they preferred the efforts for developing consciousness about surroundings conservation.

Javendra Kumar, a resident of Alawal village in Allahabad, were given married to Chanda Devi of Pure Kharag Rai on Sunday.

The novel initiative used to be a result of the efforts of surroundings activist Ajay Krantikari, who satisfied the groom Javendra Kumar and his members of the family to pedal to the bride's home.

"The idea behind the groom and his family members cycling to the bride's house was to spread awareness about environment conservation. Although, the number of pedalling baraatis was not much, the initiative was appreciated by people as well as officials," stated Krantikari.


It took more than 15 days for Krantikari to convince the groom and his circle of relatives. The volunteers of Paryavaran Sena gifted a cycle to the groom.


The groom, Javendra, stated, "Youths should come forward for such noble causes. Every individual should make efforts to save the environment."


"Many people who came to attend the wedding also took a pledge of environment conservation. If we want to save fuel and protect our environment, we have to take small steps that help save environment," added Krantikari.


There are so many weddings annually and ratings of vehicles are used. If we start the usage of bicycles for covering small distances, it might check air pollution and lend a hand deal with the purity of air in rural spaces," stated Krantikari.
