The groom with the bride

While communists and Mamata Banerjee might not see eye to eye in West Bengal, but in Tamil Nadu's Salem district both are on the same page. Interestingly, a namesake of Mamata Banerjee at Salem in Tamil Nadu married a man named Socialism today.

To be noted, the bride, P Mamata Banerjee, holds a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, and comes from a family of Congress supporters. Her parents named her after Trinamool Congress supremo when she was with the Congress.

As per a NDTV report, P Mamata Banerjee told, I was in Class X when I understood the significance of my name after my friends started talking about it."

Asked about her opinion on the Bengal Chief Minister, she replied, "I have seen her on the news many times. She is a strong woman. I am very proud to say that."

The 29-year-old groom, who is a relative of the bride, holds a BCom degree and runs a business of silver anklets. His father A Mohan is the district secretary of the CPI unit in Salem and had named his son Socialism when the Soviet Union was collapsing. His two other sons are named Communism and Leninism. Mr Mohan has said he had decided to name his children this way even before he married.

At the simple ceremony, the groom said the political rivalry attached to their names won't affect them at all. "We are happy about coming together. We will be inseparable together in happy times as well as tough times. No matter what happens, we will be together our whole lives," said Socialism.
