Hyderabad: No band, no baaja and no baraat. No corporate get-togethers and no success meets happening. The coronavirus has just robbed the city of every celebratory moment.
With several families postponing marriage functions and calling off birthday events and some going ahead with restricted attendance, function halls have sort of lost their sheen these days.
A leading convention centre in Kondapur says that eight functions including corporate events and weddings had been cancelled so far this month.
Weddings in quandary
Families, who have marriages planned for the first and second weeks of April, are in a quandary. “We have all bookings done and invitations readied. We don’t know whether to proceed with the arrangements or to put everything on hold,” said Rajeswara Reddy of Goshamahal who has the wedding of his son planned in April first week.
