Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the authorities in India have put a limit on the number of guests at weddings. Yet, some people have found innovative ways to celebrate their once-in-a-lifetime moment, like hosting their wedding reception at a platform untouched by the pandemic.
In a first, a couple from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu has hosted their wedding reception in the digital world. They celebrated in the metaverse on Sunday.
Dinesh SP and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy got married in Ramaswamy's village in Tamil Nadu's Krishnagiri district due to COVID restrictions. Only 100 people attended the wedding physically. After the wedding, the obsessed "Potter-head" fans opted for a "Harry Potter" theme reception inviting 2,000 people across the globe.
One of the videos shared by social media users shows a musical concert that was conducted via the metaverse from Tamil Nadu's capital Chennai.

The NFTs were purchased and resold within nanoseconds of them dropping.
