First successful encounter led to months-long courtship until Rajarshi proposed “Marry Me”. Agreeing, Simi noted her family-tradition of groom appearing on horseback. Internet-search would locate a rental horse, only to learn Simi’s mistake: the tradition needed an elephant. Fortunately, local zoo, due to low-attendance of tech-smart youngsters, offered a rental elephant ($3,000/hr).
Guests have now been waiting patiently for the modern groom to appear on a decorated elephant.
