Dr Heggade said “marriage is a sacred relationship. However, in the present days movies are demotivating and glorifying the bond between couples as a comedy. It is not a good sign”, he said. 
 
Younger generation is not splurging on lavish marriage ceremonies and are opting for a simple ritual. They also take equal responsibility, and no one is superior or inferior, he stated. 
 
Deve Gowda recalled his five decade long  association with Suttur Mutt. The mutt has achieved global fame with its progressive initiatives particularly in the field of education, he added. 
 
During the mass marriage ceremony Suttur Mutt seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji, Mummadi Nirwana Swamji blessed the couples.
