A man from Madhya Pradesh recently got his daughter’s wedding card to look like an Aadhaar card in a bid to spread the importance of the data. Virendra Tiwari, an agriculturist who is a native of Vilayatkalan village in Katni district got a wedding card in the design of an Aadhaar card for his daughter’s wedding. The family had earlier planned to print the wedding cards like a calendar but later finalised on the Aadhaar card look. The family came up with the idea to create awareness of the official document. Aadhar card is India’s Unique Identification Card (UID).
Tiwari also said that the design of the card helped them save paper when compared to a general wedding invite. It usually takes four to fives pages for an invite, but for this card, not many were required. Tiwari also runs a matrimony centre, Shadi Suvidha Kendra letting parents find suitable matches for their children. Tiwari urges parents to chose themes with social messages to spread good messages for their children’s wedding. Along with matchmaking and wedding cards, Tiwari also does social work. Recently, after his father passed away, the agriculturist planted hundreds of saplings during the mourning period.
In the past too, a couple had got their wedding card to look like an Aadhaar card. The unique wedding card idea had gone viral on the internet. Earlier this year, a marketing professional had tweeted his sister’s wedding card which had the logo of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan that garnered the attention of social media. After the tweet went viral, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also retweeted it and followed the man.
