Famous International blogger Diipa Khosla recently took vows with her longtime boyfriend Oleg E.H. Buller in a fairytale wedding in Udaipur. Their wedding is all over the Internet and has created a humongous buzz for all things fancy. Right from the blogger bride’s jaw-droppingly beautiful outfits to an effervescent decor by Altair -  #thebullslas wedding has left everyone smitten.

We too are crushing hard over this wedding but for a rather different and a stronger reason. Well, as you all know, there’s a ritual in Hindu weddings where the bride has to touch her husband’s feet after the pheras. As soon as Diipa and Oleg got aware of this ritual, they couldn’t stop wondering why only the woman has to touch the man’s feet? This led them to do this ritual differently and both of them ended up touching each other’s feet after the wedding.

Sharing a powerful note on Instagram, influencer Diipa Khosla explained the real reason that will truly win your hearts! Here's what she wrote:

"A few months before the wedding, when my mother told us about all the steps and beautiful ceremonies of the Indian wedding, there was one contentious point: the touching of the man’s feet at the completion of the Indian Wedding ceremony.
“Why is only the woman to touch the man’s feet?”, we asked. “Why not both touch each other’s feet in mutual respect?” Mom’s shocked large eyes gave away her thoughts about what people might say if Oleg was to touch my feet in return. All the aunties and uncles...wouldn’t they disapprove?
Though Mom’s traditional Indian background did not allow her to be sure about this being a good thing, we were sure. We would both touch each other’s feet in mutual respect from woman to man, and from man to woman. From a wife to her husband, and from a husband to his wife.
As we also decided to adopt, out of that same mutual respect, each other's surnames. As from today onwards we are Oleg Büller-Khosla and Diipa Büller-Khosla."

We are all hearts for this couple who has set a perfect example of an equal marriage and love that knows mutual respect.
