The bride Farhana Afroz, who went viral by riding a bike on 'gaye holud' day to attend the event, is going to get a motorcycle as a gift from her father-in-law. Nevertheless, she will be able to continue riding the bike in the future as the in-laws have already allowed her. 

Her father-in-law said that the photos about Farhana’s bike riding on ‘gaye holud' day went viral that resulted in getting various comments, all these would not affect her life.

Earlier, on August 14, Farhana Afroz, from Circuit House area of Jashore city, got married to Hasnain Rafi, resident of Kashinathpur in Pabna and a textile engineer while the day before, on August 13, Farhana’s 'gaye holud' event was happened. 

On the day of 'gaye holud' event bride Farhana rode a bike to make rally with friends and colleagues around the city. The photographer of the procession posted the photos of the procession on Facebook with her permission. Then those exceptional photos went viral.

Farhana Afroz said, “Everyone has celebrated the 'gaye holud' ceremony with dances and songs. Since I can ride bike, I have done the event by bike riding from the thought of doing something exceptional. I did it on my own initiative. I have had a lot of funs with my friends and colleagues.” 

She added that she has been riding bike since 2007. “Basically, I learned to ride a bicycle and a private car at home at an early age. I had also an appetite for riding my father’s motorcycle, however, I learned to ride motorcycle without informing father. Then when came in Dhaka on 2013 I became an expert in riding bike through friend’s bikes. After that I bought a scooter myself which was used for travel to university,” she added. 

Farhana further said that after the photos of the bike rally came up on Facebook, the in-laws took it simply as they knew about it (my bike riding matter) before. Hence, they have enjoyed watching photos and videos. But the netizens are not taking the issue positively while they are giving me character certificate. I can't take it. That’s why after the photos went viral I personally uploaded the video of the bike rally through social media.
