For visually disabled Makwana is 5.5 feet tall while Dangar is just 2.5 feet. But for the duo who have an age gap of seven years, it is a match made in heaven.
“I am happy with this marriage. I am blind by birth. My husband’s height might be less, but his heart is big. He is a good person. We are from the same community and he is earning good,” said Makwana, 29, who like her husband wants to become a teacher.
“I also want to become a teacher after completing my education,” said Makwana, a native of Rajesar village of Junagadh’s Mendarda taluka, who is pursuing her B Ed despite being blind by birth.
“I will do everything to follow my wife’s dream and I am happy that she is going to join my profession soon,” said 38-year-old Dangar, a native of Butavadar village of Junagadh’s Jamjodhpur taluka, who is currently serving as a primary school teacher.
“They both are qualified, but they were struggling to find a life partner.
It is an arranged marriage. Both belong to the same community and heads of both the families have finalized the marriage,” said groom’s brother Ram Dangar.
The marriage function was organised by Satyam Seva Mandal, the trust that usually organises mass marriages but has limited its role to organising individual marriages in Covid-19 era.
“We organize mass marriages every year. We have to find a suitable match for visually challenged girls of our hostel. We are happy that one of our daughters have found her suitable match,” said trustee and advocate K P Pandya.
