MATHURA: At a time when Indian students are becoming targets of racial attacks in Australia, a girl from Down Under tied the knot with an Assamese youth in Vrindaban.

Amidst Vedic hymns, the duo got married according to the Hindu rituals at an ashram. The bride's parents were present during the marriage ceremony that took place on Wednesday.

"It is the blessing of Radha Rani (goddess) that we got in the form of this marriage," an overwhelmed Elan Reid, the father of bride said.

Silva and Kalyan have been living in Vrindaban for the last couple of years and they first met in the Iskcon temple there.
