Krishnagar: 

A man in West Bengal's Nadia district became the most talked about bridegroom of his town on Sunday, when he came to tie the knot in a road roller, breaking away from the tradition of arriving on a horse or in a car. 

Arka Patra, 30, the son of a goldsmith, stepped out of the decked-up road roller outside the bride's house at Krishnagar Ukilpara, much to the surprise of the waiting guests and onlookers. 

 "I wanted to make my wedding ceremony memorable and unique. I could take a vintage car, but that would not be new. 

 I have also heard someone went to marry in an earth mover. But, I did not know of anyone going to marry in a road roller, so I decided on it," he said. 

 Mr Patra said his wife Arundhuti Tarafdar had also agreed to his unique idea, when he had discussed it with her a few days back. 

 While the bridegroom rode a road roller, accompanying friends and relatives turned up in a yellow and red coloured mini bus. 

For his wedding reception, Mr Parta again wants to do something different and environment-friendly. "I have decided that no loudspeaker will play at the reception, which is the usual norm on such occasions. Instead, a person will play a flute, moving around the venue," Mr Patra said.
