A couple in Uttar Pradesh made their wedding day even more special by engaging in the ‘joy of giving’ and saving a life. The bride and the groom came ahead to save the life of a girl by donating blood, as per a viral photo shared by UP cop Ashish Kr Mishra on twitter.

While weddings are mostly associated with newlyweds receiving gifts, this couple decided to turn the tradition on its head. The little girl, as per the policeman, was in dire need of blood, and no one came forward to donate it. It was when the the newlyweds stepped up and volunteered to give blood amid the festivities. In the photo, the couple can be seen dressed in their wedding finery, even as the man donated blood.

“My India is great,” the police officer from Prayagraj wrote in Hindi while sharing the image. He explained that no one volunteered to donate blood “because she was someone else’s child.”

Mishra shared the couple’s photo to draw attention to their kindness, as part of UP Police Mitra initiative, which encourages youths to donate blood and connects donors with those in need.

The thoughtful gesture by the couple is earning plaudits online. “Great service to humanity,” remarked one user applauding their efforts, while another wrote: “Big salute to the newlyweds.”
