Manoj Munot, a businessman from Aurangabad, Maharashtra has given us a lesson as to how weddings should actually take place. In our country people don’t shy away from showing off their wealth especially on occasions like their children’s weddings. Elite and high profiled people spend crores of rupees on weddings. Even the upper and middle class are tempted to step out of their comfort zones and spend lavishly on weddings.
From grand venues to a large number of items in the menu, from getting the best DJ to getting the most popular event planners on board, people leave no stone unturned during weddings. They spend enormously on designer dresses, pre-wedding shoots and post-wedding shoots. Not only that, everybody wants to look out for an expensive honeymoon destination so that they post on their social media platforms. Show off, especially during weddings has risen to a scary level.
Manoj Munat’s beautiful move
In such a case, Manoj Munat took the road less travelled. He had earlier planned to spend Rs. 70-80 lakh on his daughter Shreya’s wedding but later changed his mind. He decided to spend that amount on providing homes to the homeless. He provided 90 homes to the homeless poor instead of spending blindly on his daughter’s expenses.
His daughter Shreya is extremely happy with his decision and believes that his father has done a beautiful thing. She says that the blessings she has got from these homeless poor is the most beautiful gift she has received on her wedding.
After looking at this incident, we can say that humanity is still alive in our country. There are people who, instead of their own leisure prefer to spend on the other person’s needs. We salute Mr. Manoj Munat and hope that the example he has set encourages other people too to celebrate their children’s weddings in a similar way!
