Koraput: With mehndi on her hands and a smile on her face, Manika is all set to make a fresh start in life. It was six years back when Manika, who is an orphan, was rescued along with her siblings from a brick kiln by the district administration and rehabilitated at IDS shelter home.

Since then, the administration has been taking care of Manika and her marriage was recently solemnised in a grand manner. Such initiative of the administration has been appreciated by all.

Surprisingly, the 'baraat' came from Dasamantpur police station and Koraput SDPO performed all the duties of uncle for Manika, who expressed gratitude towards every official for supporting her during tough times.

“I am very happy even though I will miss my siblings. I am grateful to all officials who performed all the duties just like by parents,” said Manika.

DK Behera, an official of the shelter home informed that the marriage was certainly unique as everybody came forward to discharge their duties towards the society.

“I have two sons and it was personally a great feeling to organise the marriage of the girl who is like my daughter,” said Behera.

Srinivas, the groom said, “I am happy to get a girl like Manika as wife. My parents are also happy for us.”

Koraput SDPO, Balabhadra Deep informed that a lot of officers in the department are working towards social security. “Many officers are keen to extend help to people and this marriage will certainly inspire others,” said the senior police official.

Local residents believe that such initiatives will play a crucial role in bringing smiles in the lives of others who are a deprived a lot.

Recently, a Bhubaneswar couple tying nuptial knot by taking oath on the Constitution of India became the talk of the town.
