The bridegroom Saroj Kanta Biswal said from his childhood days he was a nature lover.

"I was opposed to dowry system in marriage. Besides I am a nature lover right from my childhood days. That's why I had insisted on receiving 1001 saplings of fruit-bearing trees. Accordingly, the wedding took place on Saturday," Biswal said.

The marriage was solemnised in an austere manner and there was no band party or firecracker show, said Ranjan Pradhan, a resident of bride's village in Adampur under Marshaghai tehsil of the district.

The most absorbing aspect the unique marriage was that the bridegroom was gifted with 1001 saplings as desired by him during marriage negotiation, said Pradhan.

"My spouse Rashmirekha Paitala is also a school teacher and she is quite happy over my decision to refuse dowry and receive saplings instead," Biswal added.
