Indian girl, Geeta, who returned from Pakistan, introduces herself to potential suitors at Indore meet
June 26, 2018
For the first time, Geeta, the deaf girl who returned from Pakistan, introduced herself from a stage to find a suitable match. This was during a two-day Parichay Sammelan organized in Indore.
Geeta introduced herself in sign language, after which an expert spoke about her educational qualifications and family status.
Of the 15 candidates shortlisted for Geeta, she chose two. The two men were from Raipur and Surat. Geeta spent some time talking to them. The two men have been given time to think and come back with their decision.
Apart from Geeta, over 160 deaf youth from across Madhya Pradesh introduced themselves with sign language to find suitable match for them at the event. About 10 people chose matches for themselves.
Many people with leg and hand disabilities also took part in the event. The Parichay Sammelan is a medium for people with disabilities to gather at a place and meet youth for marriage.
