    Chinese city Kunming hosts US$2.9 million dual wedding ceremony for Indian cousins


    Two Indian couples tied the knot in southwest China on Thursday in a lavish joint ceremony costing 20 million yuan (US$2.9 million), according to a local newspaper report.

    Chuncheng Evening News reported." data-reactid="23" style="margin-bottom: 1em;">More than 600 guests from overseas attended the event in Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, while more than 400 people were employed to stage it, including 120 cooks, Chuncheng Evening News reported.

    The huge event was paid for by Sanjay Jain, managing director of Kolkata-based property developer Siddha Group, whose son and nephew were the two grooms.

    The report identified them only as Samyak and Aayushman, respectively, and did not name their brides.

    Such was the high profile nature of the event for the local community that the vice-governor of Yunnan, Zhang Guohua, met Jain a few days before it took place to make sure it went smoothly, according to an article on the provincial government’s website.

    The wedding was held at a resort near Dianchi Lake and included both Indian and Chinese marriage elements, including Indian drums and dances, Chinese dragon and lion dances, and stilt walking.

    A cousin of the two grooms, who gave his name only as Harsh, said Indian people often held weddings overseas. He was also very complimentary about Kunming.

    “The city is amazing,” he was quoted as saying.

    Wang Xiangyun, director of the Yunnan Society For China-India Cooperation and Exchange, said hosting Indian weddings was a good commercial opportunity for the province.

    “Some other mainland provinces have realised this and they too are trying to attract rich Indian families to hold weddings in their cities,” she said.

    “Such events are not only a boost for the local wedding market, but also for tourism and trade cooperation.”

    I understand you bro.

    The climate of Kunming is very good. It's very suitable for living. Kunming and Calcutta are sister cities. You can choose Calcutta flight to Kunming.

    If possible, you are always welcome to Kunming.

    There is no problem with Indian parts. The quality of Indian products is also very good.
    So why do Indian products have such good quality?

    because most Indian machine tools come from China.

    So why do Indian friends choose Kunming? Because they believe made in China marriage.

    There is a large crowd in India which will like this new trend of foreign destination marriage , i am sure soon the enthusiastic upper Indian middle class will also get into this. Big fat Indian weddings are as big as diwali in India , and chinese are good enough to tap onto this. In a way its good & bad , i have mixed feelings about it. The bad part is loosing on the business side because an Indian will spend the most on his marriage than anything else , the good part is i am convinced that lavish weddings cause a lot of inconvenience & the mindboggling figures being spent just doesn't feel good for national character. Until we ramp-up our cities with modern infrastructure & lift more people out of poverty its better if Ambanis & Adanis marry outside India.
