The story of their meeting is also interesting. Kashyap met Dana on a language learning app. “We met on a language learning app. In 2017, she came to India on my birthday”, said Kashyap. “Then this February 11, Dana and her mother came to India for the wedding”, he adds.
“On February 17, we applied for marriage under the Special Marriage Act which has a 30-day notice… The notice was to end on March 18 but by then the lockdown began so we could not get married. We submitted an application to the district collector after which the marriage was conducted“, he elaborated.
