The young Indian couple posted a set of wedding photos online, which quickly went viral on social media, attracting countless Internet users, but the couple told the media they would never delete them because deleting them meant bowing to online violence. They had planned a big wedding in April, but the Indian government imposed a strict blockade and banned all gatherings until recently, when the government allowed small weddings, but asked for fewer than 50 people. They didn’t want to wait any longer, and on September 16th they got married in a temple in their hometown of Coleland. Wedding photos because the wedding only invited the two families and a few close friends, they felt that the wedding and their original idea is not the same, so decided to take a set of unforgettable wedding photos to make up for this regret. In Kerala, India, many couples announce their love to the world by crafting their own wedding photos. Hrushi searched the Internet for ideas for wedding dresses, and thought of a great idea for a “romantic and intimate” post-marriage life. He chose the location for the shoot in a lush tea garden, invited his photographer friend Akhil Karthikeyan to shoot for them, and then borrowed a white silk behement from the hotel, which took only a few hours to complete.
After a few days of hugging each other in the tea garden, akhil posted the photos on Facebook, and the trouble began. The photos, which immediately attracted numerous Internet trolls when they were posted, said they were ugly, vulgar, shameful, pornographic and suitable for advertising. Spray said they were showing nudity, and others asked if they were dressed when taking photos, which some say the couple did to get attention and to be famous. Internet trolls focused more on the hostess, Lexhmi, who suggested that the hostess appear in a yellow film, physically assault her over and over again, and find photos of her without makeup, saying she was particularly ugly without makeup. A few days later, a voice encouraging the couple appeared online, saying: ‘These photos are so beautiful, ignore the Internet trolls.’ Some time ago they were ashamed to hold hands in the street. To make matters worse, in addition to dealing with the internet, they have to deal with conservative relatives. Lekshmi said: ‘At first, our parents were shocked, but after we explained, they began to understand and support us, and instead many of my relatives accused us of imitating the West for no reason. They called Lexhmi and scolded her: Have you forgotten our culture? Hrushi and Lekshmi were kicked out of the family whatsapp group because they refused to delete the photos, but they were determined – never compromise! She said: ‘It was hard to deal with the criticism at first, but now I’m used to it, that’s what our society is all about, and we’ve learned how to get along with it.
As a bystander, I think this set of photos is no problem, I can’t understand the strange brain circuit of Indian men, I don’t understand why women exposed a back, exposed arms, exposed legs will be regarded as sexual innuendo, I also do not understand why Indian men see the leak out of the arms and legs of people, both men and women, bright eyes, this is a strange habit? The Wall Street Journal has produced a “rape map of India”, showing that in 2011 alone, there were 24,206 rapes across India, with the northern part of the capital, New Delhi, hit hard. In the Indian capital, New Delhi, there is an average of one rape every 18 hours. In India in 2016, one woman was raped every 13 minutes and six women were gang-raped every day, the BBC reported, citing data. There is a joke about India: female flies in India have to cover their ass to fly. This is probably why “India is recognized as the last country women want to go to”.
