A ‘LOVE-CUM-ARRANGED’ MARRIAGE FOR POWER COUPLE
Haryana’s beloved daughter, Rio Olympics bronze medallist wrestler Sakshi Malik, wed wrestler Satyawart Kadian on Sunday at Rohtak’s Nandal Bhawan.
Guests were greeted by images and videos of Sakshi’s triumphs – footage of her Rio Olympics moment was played on a large LCD screen placed at the entrance. Satyawart himself has an illustrious wrestling lineage, being the son of Arjuna Awardee wrestler Satyavan Kadian.
For the proud parents of the bride and the bridegroom, this union means a stronger common resolve to win more medals. The bride’s father Sukhbir Malik said, “They met through wrestling competitions. It’s a love-cumarranged marriage. Hum yehi umeed karte hai ki shaadi hone ke baad mein zydaa mehnat karenge bachhe.”
