The couple met each other two month earlier and found that life has treated them almost in the same way. Both were in a live-in relationship presently for past one week.
"We met at a cultural programme and befriended each other two months ago but the bonding and chemistry matched so well, we decided to marry," Ratiya Ram said naively to media reporters.
Interestingly, the whole village has witness the wedding and contributed for the celebration as the sarpanch Lalit Nagesh has taken responsibility for the expenses.
Ram and Bai, who belong to the Korwah tribe, were separately living lonely lives in their respective villages till they met each other, just 15 days ago at a social event and decided to live together.

Earlier, they have shared their plan with sarpanch who readily agreed and complemented with financial aid.While the whole village is talking about the couple's courage, Ratiya Ram says that he has now got energy in the form of his wife and he will go out and work to earn money.
