Somatirtha Purohit

‘Love knows no boundaries’. This famous adage has once again been proved after a Slovenia woman travelled all the way from her country to Odisha’s Bolangir district to tie knot with her love.  

Sourav Senapati, son of Premlal Senapati of Dedgaon Village under Bangomunda Block in Bolangir District, works at a renowned company in Germany’s Munich, where he met his soul mate Ema, who is also his colleague. 

As the time passed by, they knew each other’s religions, cultures, traditions, life styles and food habits and became friends. Unbeknownst to them, love blossomed between them. 

“Ema fell in love with our tradition, culture, cuisines and languages. After a three-year-long relationship, we decided to take our relationship to next level. Then we sought consent from our parents for marriage”, said the groom.

After few rounds of discussions, both the families fixed April 20 for solemnization of Sourav and Ema’s marriage. The venue was a private hotel in Bhubaneswar. In the presence of family members and guests of both the sides, the couple exchanged garlands following the Hindu traditions. 

“The moment I donned the traditional marriage attire I felt to be on cloud nine. I am very happy to experience the culture here,” said the bride Ema.

Back in their hometown, Sourav’s family threw a grand reception. “We are happy and proud to get a beautiful daughter-in-law from Slovenia,” said an exalted groom’s father. 

From Ema’s family 13 members attended the big day. According to the family members of the bride, they were touched by the hospitality and culture of India.
