A wedding invitation has become the topic of discussion among users on social media. In the invitation, the name of the bride, i.e. Mamata Banerjee, has left everyone bemused.
The wedding card claimed the bride and groom named P Mamata Banerjee and AM Socialism are tying the nuptial knot on June 13. Many netizens doubted that the card is photoshopped.
The wedding card was published in ‘Jana Sakthi’, the Tamil mouthpiece of the CPI on Monday. However, the groom’s father, Lenin Mohan is also known as A Mohan had received several calls asking him the authenticity of the wedding card.
Noteworthy, A Mohan is the district secretary of CPI in Salem, Tamil Nadu. While speaking to Indian Express, Mohan said, “Everyone is so curious about the names of the bride and the groom. Cadres, friends, and many from media called me to verify whether the invitation is genuine, I was so irritated with so many people asking the same question but later got used to it.”
He further told that in Kattur village, where the majority follows communism, it is not uncommon to find people living in the area with unique names on a country like Russia, Moscow, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Vietnam, Venmani, etc.
The groom’s father also added that people name their children after the name of leaders, countries, and ideologies.
His three sons are uniformly named in an aforesaid way. On the other hand, he also revealed that the bride’s father is their relative. Her grandfather is a Congressman and he is highly inspired by Mamata Banerjee. Therefore, he named her granddaughter after West Bengal CM.
“We all want our future generations to carry forward our ideology. I have named my grandson Marxism. In the future, if a girl child is born in our family, I will name her Cubaism," Mohan was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
Therefore, the confusion is clear that the bride is not the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee.
Meanwhile, the marriage would take place on June 13 at the bride’s house in Amanikondalampatti village.
