This nightmare almost became real for a Kerala groom has an interesting twist to the tale- thanks to the Kochi Metro. 33 year old IT entrepreneur Ranjith, the groom in question- was on the way to his wedding venue somewhere on the suburbs of Kochi on December 23 when he got stuck in a nerve-wracking traffic jam.
The family of the groom found themselves far from the venue after being hit by a traffic snarl for almost four hours on a stretch that usually takes three hours from their residence. “Having started at 6m for a ceremony slated at 11am, we were still far from the venue, due to immense road congestion,” Ranjith explained later.
At Aluva then finally the family boarded the Kochi Metro to the city centre at 11:30am. It took them 20 minutes to reach the nearest metro station to the auditorium and the couple, to everyone’s relief got married between 12:00-12:05pm.
