When he reached the wedding venue where he was supposed to tie the knot with bride Priyanka Bej, he was surprised to see a big pile of books at the corner.
The groom told The Telegraph, “I had made it clear that I would not accept any dowry. When I arrived for the wedding, I was pleasantly surprised to find a huge pile of books as a gift,”
However, Bride’s family planned to surprise their soon-to-be-son-in-law with almost 1000 Books worth around Rs. 1 Lakh, as he is an ardent book lover. Bride Priyanka who loves book expressed her excitement to marry a man who is also a book reader.
