Rajahmundry: R. Harikrishna, settled in California of the USA, tied the knot to Dennis from Russia at the temple of the International Sri Krishna Consciousness here on Wednesday. The ritual was performed under the guidance of the Satya Gopinath Das, head of ISKCON.

Dennis is a doctor from Rumania. “They liked each other. They both are disciples of Lord Krishna. My boy asked for our permission for their marriage. I readily agreed,” said R. Ramanujarao, whose family is settled in Hyderabad. “We are in love from last two years. I like Hindu tradition, customs and particularly Lord Krishna so much. I proposed to Harikrishna,” said Dennis. Prof. Harikrishna said that her sister's marriage was also performed in ISKCON temple, Hyderabad.

In keeping with the tradition, Harikrishna put “jeelakarran and bellam” on the head of Dennis and tied the knot.
