Kshama Bindu got married to herself back in 2022. She is the first person in India to perform sologamy or self-marriage.

Kshama Bindu made headlines a year ago when she decided to get married to herself. Hailing from Gujarat, the woman took 'saat phere' with herself and put sindoor on her forehead to perform India's first sologamy or self-marriage. Once again, she is making headlines and this time due to her recent video on Instagram. The video shows her celebrating her first wedding anniversary.

“Happy 1st Anniversary,” she wrote as she shared a video. The video is created using different snippets, including pictures from her wedding. One of the snippets in her video also shows her getting a tattoo “Ekla Chalo Re”. For the unversed, the words are from a famous Bengali poem by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore and roughly translates to “Walk alone”.
