Busy in ensuring lockdown, no wedlock for now, Malvalli DySP defers marriage

2 min read

Mysuru: Postponing marriage is a huge deal in many families, especially at bride’s family.

But Malvalli (Mandya) DySP MJ Pruthvi – who was supposed to wed on April 5 – has managed to convince her parents to delay the wedding as she has bigger responsibilities to shoulder on, in this lockdown period.

The tweet posted by Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambareesh

A firm believer in ‘Service above self’, Pruthvi has been working in the frontline along with other officers as the whole nation is fighting the Covid-19.

“My parents – like any other parents – wanted me to go ahead with the wedding. They were not aware of the threat that the Corona virus was causing. Even my fiancee’s parents too were of the same opinion. They wanted us to have a simple wedding, at least on the said date. But my fiancée and I discussed and agreed to postpone the wedding,” Pruthvi told mysoorunews.com.

Pruthvi was supposed to marry Dyamappa, an IRS officer in Bengaluru, at Dharwad on April 5.

Stating that no one had ever imagined the impact that it has left on us now, Pruthvi said “It feels, we are fighting a war and we don’t know when it’s going to get over.”

Since Malvalli has registered 10 positive cases of Covid-19, there is no time for family, Pruthvi puts it.

“We are required to be in the field. And, especially, in time like this, we have bigger responsibilities. We cannot afford to have the luxury of spending time with the family,” she said adding that it’s been weeks since she visited her aged parents, who live in Mysuru.

Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambareesh has appreciated Pruthvi calling her Corona Warrior. Sumalatha tweeted that “A brave woman, an excellent police officer and a model citizen, extremely proud that she’s serving as DySP in Malvalli, Mandya.”

At a time when those with powers can have their way despite the lockdown, DySP Pruthvi and her fiancée Dyamappa come across as the true public servants. Kudos to them.
