Women today are breaking barriers, challenging stereotypes everyday. Each day we hear of stories of women setting new rules, breaking norms and honestly, it is inspiring! Women are prioritising their own life, education, freedom more than ever today and setting an example for many.
Recently, a bride-to-be gave her university examination in her bridal attire ahead of her wedding and left many inspired.
A video of a bride writing her giving her examination, dressed in bridal attire is going viral on social media. The video shows a woman dressed up as a bride, wearing a lehenga and jewellery writing her exam with other students in an exam hall.
This woman from Rajkot, Gujarat is Shivangi Bagthariya who is an undergraduate student. She gave her examination at Shanti Niketan College. She is currently studying Bachelor of Social Work and gave her exam for the fifth semester.
When Her Wedding Muhurat And Exam Date Clashed
Shivangi Bagthariya's wedding date and examination date clashed which is why she had to head for her exam before her wedding. In an interview as per a report by scoopwhoop, she said, "When the date of my marriage was finalized, the examination schedule wasn’t declared. As luck would have it, the date as well as the morning muhurat of marriage clashed with my examination."
She added, "Education is a must for all, including women. Parents and girls should give importance to education." Shivani arrived at the examination hall with her husband-to-be. As per reports, both the families supported her decision.
As soon as Shivani's video went viral on social media, netizens begin to share and comment on it. While many praised her for taking such a step, others spewed a lot of hate on the video and called it fake and scripted.
A user wrote, "People who are saying bridal make up exam ke baad bhi ho sakta tha… I have question for them. Are you in her shoes at the moment.. what if right after completing exam she have to perform a wedding rituals. Or travel somewhere far for the wedding rituals and she doesn’t have time to get ready!!!
Stop judging each and everyone!! Appreciate how she is giving importance to her education… I bet many of you who are already judging her.. might have not been really good in their education."
Many even questioned who made the video of students giving their exam in the hall and if it was allowed. "Examination hall me camera kaise allow tha 🤔," asked an Instagram user.
