New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Kshama Bindu, a Gujarat woman who made headlines for 'India's first sologamy' has finally married herself in a 40-minute long ceremony. The marriage took place 2 days ahead of the planned date which was June 11. The sudden preponement of the wedding happened after Kshama faced resistance from a BJP leader Sunita Shukla. Earlier, she had plans to get married in a temple but later amid all the resistance she just decided to tie the knot at her own house in Gotri.

Speaking to TOI, Kshama said, “I am very happy to finally be a married woman. I felt that someone may try to create controversy on the day of the wedding shared g and I didn’t want to spoil my special day. So, I advanced it to Wednesday."
