On New Years, Aditya Tiwari became India’s youngest single parent after he adopted a child with special needs. Tiwari had adopted the one-and-a-half-year-old Binney who suffered from Down’s syndrome and a hole in his heart.
The noble guy, who became an inspiration for many, is now tying the knot. And in case you’re wondering what’s the big deal about it is; just like his decision to single-handedly take care of a child with special needs, his wedding is also going to be an unconventional affair.
Seven months later, their family is getting a new addition as Tiwari prepares to tie the knot on July 16. The 28-year-old software engineer will soon wed an Indore girl in a special ceremony. In fact, we doubt that there are going to be any guests at his wedding because he’s not inviting anyone, except for immediate family members.
He adopted a zoo tiger, planted 100 tree saplings, and plans to set up a support group for children suffering from Down’s syndrome over the next two months. His other ambitions include building toilets for girls in tribal regions of the state of Madhya Pradesh, as well as setting up a shelter home for stray animals.
Indian weddings usually include guests numbering thousands, lavish spreads, and celebrations lasting several days. But Aditya wanted to celebrate his wedding with the less fortunate.
Instead of splurging money on an extravagant wedding, Aditya and Arpita’s guestlist included 10,000 orphans and homeless people, specially abled individuals, abandoned widows and parents, and 1,000 stray animals. These unique guests shared the wedding feast along with the bride and groom’s immediate family. As wedding presents, guests received books and medicines.
“As it is one of the happiest days of my life, I want to include people who never get any invitations like children from orphanages, homeless, and poor people. And people tend to spend lakhs of rupees on their marriage by hiring disk jockeys, on decorations, and lavish menu but I do not want to do the same” said Tiwari
