A wedding card of a bride named P Mamata Banerjee and groom named AM Socialism has created a buzz on social media.
Salem: A wedding card from Tamil Nadu's Salem district has gone viral on social media. The bride named P Mamata Banerjee will marry groom AM Socialism on June 13. The names of the bride and groom have left netizens wondering if the wedding invite is legitimate or edited.
The card also mentions the names of the groom's elder brothers as AM Communism and AM Leninism.
Wedding Invite is Real:
The family members of the couple-to-be have confirmed that the wedding invite is real. Socialism is the son of Lenin Mohan, aka A Mohan, who is the district secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI) in Salem.
While explaining the unusual naming tradition in his family, Mohan told The Indian Express, "After the Soviet Union was dissolved, people were saying that communism has fallen and the ideology won't prosper anywhere in the world. There was a news clip on Doordarshan with regards to this and at that time, my wife gave birth to my elder son. I decided immediately to name him communism as I believed that till the human race exists, communism won't fall."
Mohan said that it is not uncommon to find people living in the area with unique names such as Russia, Moscow, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Vietnam, Venmani, etc.
The wedding card was published in 'Jana Sakthi', the Tamil mouthpiece of the CPI on Monday.
Mohan has got more than 300 calls from people curious about the names of the bride and the groom.
Talking about the wedding card going viral, Mohan said, "My sons are happy because everyone is appreciating them for having such names, unlike when they were younger. All of them studied in government schools. They faced humiliation, people tend to misspell their names. This continued till they completed their schooling, but in college, the situation got better. My elder son did law in Chennai college and the other two did B.Com. People used to listen to the backstory and be fascinated as we have been following this ideology for generations."
