While weddings in India are celebrated as grand occasions, a very simple wedding ceremony was recently held in a government office. Yes, you read that right; a very simply wedding ceremony took place in an office. IPS officer Navjot Simmi from the 2018 batch of the Bihar cadre and IAS Tushar Singla of the 2015 batch of Bengal cadre recently tied their knot at the latter’s office in West Bengal. But why did Mr Singla and now Ms Singla get married in Mr Singla’s office? As it appears, being an IAS officer, Mr Singla was very busy with his election duty and had been trying to visit Punjab for the wedding but in vain. He could not make it to Punjab for his heavy workload and the wedding got repeatedly postponed. However, this time Mr. Singla took a strong decision to complete his marriage legally in his office itself. Simi travelled all the way from Patna to Bengal for the wedding and both of them completed the process of the registry of their marriage in Singla's office on Valentine's Day. Both of them hail from Gujarat and have been together for quite some time now. When asked about this, State Minister and Howrah district president Arup Roy said, "There is nothing wrong in this. The registry of the marriage is also a legal process. Therefore, there should be no dispute regarding the marriage being held in the government office. Both of them have just signed. No banquet has happened there. There is no question of dispute in this situation. I don't think there is any problem with the two people getting married in a government office. It is nowhere an offence for me. Perhaps he was on duty, as a result of which he did it in office. The two of them just signed the papers. But there has been no celebration. Hence I don't find it to be offensive". The couple has promised a proper reception for their friends and family only after the 2021 state assembly elections in Bengal are over. Both these civil servants by putting their duty above their personal engagements have shown their dedication towards their professional commitments.
