"We had been looking for a suitable bride for my son for so many years. But because of his low height, no one was willing to give him a daughter. But finally, he has found a great woman to get married to. We all love Ujjwala and we are so thankful for her. I will treat her like my own daughter," said Sandeep's mother.

Sandeep Sanjay Sapkale from the Shanipethe area of the city, despite being well-educated and having a well-paying bank job, was struggling to find a suitable bride for himself because of his height. Thirty-six inches tall, Sandeep is the only one with dwarfism in his family. His family, too, had long been worried about finding a suitable life partner for him, until they accidentally found one.

Ujjwala Kamble from the neighbouring Dhule district was also struggling to find a groom for herself because of her dwarfism. About 31 inches tall, her family had almost lost hopes for her marriage. Ujjwala's father had three years ago visited Jalgaon and had heard about Sandeep as a suitable groom suggestion for his daughter. However, because he did not know what the boy did for a living, he discarded the option. Advertisement
