Baramulla: To mark the first wedding ceremony of the year amid a two-year ceasefire between India and Pakistan, celebrations were held in Churunada border town of Uri in Baramulla district.
The ceasefire, which has brought peace to the de facto border, has allowed residents on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) to resume their daily lives without fear of frequent firing and destruction of homes.
Choudhary Lal Hussain, who had previously experienced disrupted wedding ceremonies due to cross-border shelling, expressed gratitude towards his loved ones for attending his sister's wedding.
"The peaceful situation in the area over the past two years has made such gatherings possible," he said.
Mohammad Sultan, an elderly local, expressed his joy at the newfound ability to hold celebratory events in his village.
"Before, we used to worry about whether we would be able to hold a wedding or not because of the constant threat of shelling and violence," he said.
"But now, with the ceasefire in place and a peaceful atmosphere prevailing, we can hold our ceremonies with joy and celebration. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to carry on our cultural traditions without the constant fear of shelling," he said.
Other locals echoed similar sentiments, expressing their delight at being able to hold weddings and other celebrations without fear of violence.
They also said that the wedding celebration in Churunada is just one example of how the ceasefire has brought a sense of normalcy back to the lives of those living in border areas. (with ANI inputs)
