  1. Hello, hello! says:

    Marriages limiting guests to 50? Who is going to count these guests? Police supervised by the police commissioner and DC? Why not just postpone these marriages-India is already over populated with over 1.4 billion people. If these marriages are absolutely necessary, I cannot see why, but i they are, just register the marriage with a registrar and the witnesses, considering it is corona virus time.
