As a popular saying goes, “age is just a number”.

Second innings in life may not be a viable option for many, but senior citizens in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana might as well get another chance this month. Two matrimonial service providers have conducted a marriage registration event for men and women aged above fifty, reported The Hindu

The matrimonial event, held on July 23, saw a footfall of nearly 150 men and 50 women. It was jointly organised by Gujarat-based Anubhuti and Thodu Needa, a Hyderabad-based platform.

Natubhai, a retired employee of the Planning Commission spearheads the organisation which was founded in 2002. “I thought of doing a service for senior citizens after I narrowly escaped Gujarat earthquake of 2001. I believe life has to be cherished and it is a blessing to have a companion,” he said. Till date, Anubhuti has conducted over 116 marriages. On the other hand, Thodu Needa conducted 100 marriages of couples hailing from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Women are encouraged to attend the event. We will reimburse the travel fare for those who cannot afford it,” Natubhai said. Though there are stringent strictures regarding marriage, yet senior citizens are extremely progressive. They have no bar for live-in relationships as well.

Company in old-age is often a major problem for senior citizens who live away from their children. The Logical Indian community applauds this initiative taken by the organisations to help senior citizens tie a knot without the barriers of discrimination.
