What do you do when you see the photograph of a married couple on social media? You usually either wish the couple good luck, comment on their attire, crib about the big fat Kerala weddings or ignore it altogether and scroll down.
When Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) shared the news about two of their employees tying the knot on their Facebook page, they were called "Kochi Matrimonial Rail Limited." While several users responded positively and wished the couple good luck, there were also users who trolled KMRL for its action.
On Thursday, KMRL shared a photograph of a couple dressed in their wedding attire on their Facebook page to convey the happiness of Kochi Metro facilitating two individuals in identifying their life partner.
Anju Harshan, who works as a train operator, and Vineeth Sankar, who works as the station controller, got married recently after months of courtship. While Anju is a native of Thiruvanathapuram and Vineeth is from Kannur (the other end of Kerala), they happened to meet each other when they joined KMRL.
Saying how KMRL was happy to have connected two individuals from two parts of Kerala, they wished the couple a happy married life.
"Does KMRL stand for Kochi Matrimonial Rail Limited?" one user questioned.
Some others asked what the need for such a social media post was, while some others cautioned KMRL that this was not a healthy thing.
"Will KMRL also post news of its employees' pregnancy and delivery?" some others asked.
However, KMRL decided to take the trolls head on! Not only did KMRL stand by its action, but also backed its employees by saying that the organisation stands by them.
"Take it easy, sir. We are spreading love, not hate", said KMRL, pointing out that the HR rules in most Indian companies don't prohibit it.
When another user commented about how silly this was, KMRL wasnâ€™t one to hold back.
"What is so silly in two people getting married? This is the news of two people from KMRL family getting married. And we are happy for themâ€ť, they replied.
