Marriage season begins in the State. According to purohits, auspicious timings are available till May 14. Later, for another six months there is no good time ( muhurtham ) to perform the marriages. Pundits said that because of Godavari pushkaralu lucky dates are not available.
According to estimations, over 20,000 marriages will be solemnised. This has turned out to be a boon to all concerned involved in the marriage celebrations. For example, Veda pundits, catering staff, decoration workers, tailors, cooks became busy in an attempt to make money. Nearly all function halls have been booked.
