Abhijeet weds Sansriti: India’s First Metaverse Wedding

On Sunday, February 5, India witnessed a first-of-its kind wedding.

Bhopal-based Abhijeet Goel, 33, and Dr Sansrati Jain, 34, tied the knot in a special ceremony to become India’s first couple to get married on a Metaverse platform.

The wedding took place on February 5 between 8 pm and 9 pm on Yug Metaverse, a made in India metaverse platform.

What is Metaverse?

Metaverse is a virtual reality environment in which users can create their identity or avatar and interact with users from across the world in a simulated (graphic) setting.

Although metaverse adoption is still at an early stage worldwide, Utkarsh Shukla, creator of the Yug Metaverse, is confident that the future is bright for India.
‘We wanted India to lead and be at the forefront of this technology revolution, and hence we built a Metaverse Platform, YUG, in India,’ says Shukla.
