GUJARAT: On coming Valentines Day (February 14, 2019), around 10,000 students in Surat would be taking an oath to not to marry against their parents’ wishes. The event is being organised by a voluntary organisation – Hasyamev Jayate – (run by laughter therapist Kamlesh Masalawala ) that would be held on February 14. Students across 12 schools across Surat have participated in the event.
“These days, many youngsters fall in love and take an impulsive decision to get married. Many even run away from homes and get married, but such relationships turn out to be short-lived. We want to promote the importance of parents’ guidance when it comes to taking such a big decision of life,” Masalawala was quoted as saying by TOI.
Few of the schools that are involved are: Sanskar Bharti in Palanpur Patiya, Presidency High School in Adajan, Sanskar Kunj Gyanpith, Swaminarayan MV Vidyalaya, Sun Grace Vidyalaya, Navchetna Vidyalaya in Varachha, and Gyan Ganga Vidyalaya.
