TRUE love is blind, it disregards creed, race, religion, distance and status as sealed by lovebirds Ashneeta Devi, 24, and Kaleshwaran Sanguanand, 27 witnessed by friends and relatives at a unique wedding ceremony held in Nadi yesterday.
The newly-weds are both deaf and cannot speak.
But their love built a new bridge since their first meeting in Australia two years ago.
The duo first met in Australia where Mr Sanguanand resides and their love was sealed with a special ceremony in Malolo, Nadi, where the love of his life resides.
Hundreds gathered to witness this exceptional occasion witnessing what love can do to change the mindset of special people or those that are neglected by society.
Describing their first meeting, the couple admitted that it was love at first and despite the fact that both were disabled, it was the inner beauty that attracted them to each other.
"I met Kalesh in Australia in October 2010 at my sister's family function and from there, we came to know each other, it was love at first sight," said the bride in sign language through an intepreter.
"We communicated in our sign language there and started to communicate and we got to know each other."
"When we met there, we had a chat in our sign language as we both had the same problems, couldn't hear or talk we found it interesting and then we came to know more about each other," Mr Sanguanand said.
"It's her inner beauty that attracted me as she was so caring after that first meeting. She is very caring, loving and she is very nice from her heart," he said.
The couple believe God has a purpose for every living being in this world and accordingly set a benchmark for other people who might feel ashamed of who they are.
"I never felt disabled as my thinking is that there is no one disabled as I am also living a normal life as others do," said Mrs Sanguanand.
"There is nothing to be ashamed of, no one is disabled in this world. But truly, if you see, all people are disabled in this world because no one in this world can do everything, so that means everyone can be called disabled.
"I would say to all the special people who are like me not to be disheartened and respect the nature of God and be strong because if God has created us like this, then someone somewhere is waiting for you."
