Archers Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das tie the knot in Ranchi on Tuesday

Former World number archer 1 Deepika Kumari and World Cup bronze medalist Atanu Das tied the knot in a ceremony held on 30th June, Tuesday. Both archers have collaborated in the past in the 2013 World Cup mixed doubles held in Columbia and won.

The ceremony was small with only 60 invitations printed overall with the guests attending in batches of 50 people each. Attendees of the wedding had been informed about social distancing norms and rules to be maintained for the safety of their health. Masks and sanitizers were provided on arrival. The archers had initially planned the wedding post the Tokyo Olympics which were to be held in 2020 but have now postponed to 2021.

Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren graced the auspicious occasion with his presence along with the newly elected president of the Archers Association of India (AAI) Arjun Munda. Arjun has been known to shape Deepika’s career to the successful archer she is today.

The coronavirus has left the whole world shook. Sports events have been shut down all over the world and athletes have been unable to train until the risk minimizes. This however was taken into a positive light by the two archers. Since they weren’t training or away for competing, they decided to tie the knot in the time available with their families and close ones.
