As all social gatherings remain suspended to curb the spread of Covid-19, couples all around the world are coming up with unique social distancing measures while tying the knot. There are many who’ve resorted to using online video conferencing applications, but one couple is going viral for their rather unique way of maintaining physical distancing while getting married.
The couple, reportedly from Mumbai, was seen using sticks to put garlands on each other during the ceremony. Dressed in ceremonial attire and wearing masks, the bride and groom took turns to use the sticks to carefully put garlands on each other.

Under the new lockdown norms a “limited” number of activities will remain prohibited throughout the country, irrespective of whether it lies in a red, green or orange zone. These include places of large public gatherings, such as cinema halls, malls, gymnasiums, sports complexes; social, political, cultural and other kinds of gatherings; and, religious places/places of worship for public.
