25,000 Weddings in Delhi in One Day And Twitter Warned of Traffic Chaos
Wed 09-12-2015

December 7 is considered one of the "most auspicious days" for marriages this season, Delhi has witnessed around 25,000 weddings on Monday.

However, with limited facilities available, commoners feel this might create chaos in the capital and there might be mind-boggling traffic jams on the streets.

"The planet that we consider for auspicious marriage day - Shukra (Venus) - is in its own sign Libra today (Monday). When we search dates for weddings, we look at the positioning of Shukra. Also, we look at the position of Chandrama (Moon). Today both of them are in Libra. This is the biggest reason why December 7 is one of the most auspicious days for marriage," astrologer Ridhi Bahl told IANS.

"Astrologically, marriages that will take place today (December 7), will last long," she added.

Delhi-based wedding planner Amardeep Singh, who is handling nine weddings on Monday, says "there are around 25,000 to 35,000 weddings happening in the capital itself".

"I'm handing nine clients today. Due to lack of availability of banquet halls, one of my clients had to do his function in afternoon. Though Uttar Pradesh and Bihar are our prime source for manpower, we have brought some workers from Madhya Pradesh too," he said.

Many people even took a dig at "25,000 weddings" happening in the national capital, while talking about the topic on Twitter, where they warned each other to skip going out.
