No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together. This is the motive of a couple who married at Mahesh Foundation in a simple way called “Mantra Mangalya”, a concept by Rashtrakavi Kuvempu.

Mr. Chandrakant Gavani and Veena, tied the nuptial knot in the presence of some senior social activists and children of Mahesh Foundation. The couple desired to marry in the presence of underprivileged children and instead of spending on luxurious marriage they wanted to contribute that for children.
