"I was troubled by the singular image of a bride that our society has."
Meet Tasnim Jara. She's a Dhaka-based doctor, and a new bride.
Four days after her wedding reception, Jara posted a photo, detailing why she decided to attend her wedding wearing a simple cotton saree, no jewellery and not a stitch of makeup.

The post has amassed 30,000+ shares as of now, and touched thousands.
"I was troubled by the singular image of a bride that our society has," the Facebook post reads.
