This Happens only in India?

May 24, 2010

A marriage can be broken just after three hours of its solemnization

Reason being the girl’s mother forgot to serve water to the boy’s mother

how can the poor parents of a bride commit such a heinous crime of not bowing down to the dictates/demands/wishes of the groom’s family?

Didn’t they know that heavens will fall if they annoy the groom’s side? the girl and her side should be punished for committing such a sin.

If don’t believe me then please go through the following link

Three cheers for the  the brave parents who refused to send their daughter with the boy’s side once they started demanding dowry after all the marriage functions were over.

wish there were more supportive and courageous  parents like them

    Was it just a glass of water or was it the dowry that ultimately crashed and burnt the wedding?

    If it was the dowry, then I salute the bride’s side for not bowing down, and the story should be told to everyone to ensure that the practice of dowry is abolished.

    If it was a glass of water that ruined the wedding, then adding to the drama of the dowry is an element of ridiculousness. However, despite that being said, this story is a good example of marriage in India, where the groom’s side of the family can make crazy demands and expect to be treated like kings. But as the story demonstrates, times are changing, slowly but surely.

    This is crazy! I am glad that the bride’s side did not accept it simply, and were bold enough to cancel the wedding. Fucking losers, man!

    Such incidents do not come out in the open very often but happen every day in villages.
    But, we can still live in hopes that the situation will change and we will see more parents and the brides taking a stand.

    really how ridiculous we could be !..but this is all happening in villages..I know many families where boy’s side has been exploited due to our anti dowry law.

    It is very common in Indian marriages that’ Barati’ coming from Boy’s side deliberately try to create fuss over trivial issues just for the heck of it to show that they are ‘important’ and their needs are looked in to on priority! Even the new generation boys and girls act very funny if they are from boy’s side!

    wow… i cant believe its only the glass of water that triggered the marriage to be broken..
    it could be more… may be more dowry demands

    i am glad that the girls parents dint beg for the grooms family to take their daughter , becuase going forward her life would have been only hell

    its shame on the groom…because if young people dont have their own values and principles and just bow down to their parents wishes… the youth will go nowhere

    Ah such atrocities are still being committed! Dowry incidents are so common and even more so with well educated families :(. Hope more parents take up the cause of the girl child’s happiness and give it greater importance than ‘oh what will the society think?’ :)..

    Even after 67 years of independence, we could not change our society , the reason being vested interests and dirty politics which is constantly promoting castiesm, But there is a hope. Time will change as long as the girls are given education and they stand indepently to fight the evils of the society.

    what a pity, the indian TV serials have maligned the image of Women . name any serial and you will find a very disgusting portayel of women character

    Sad, it still happens in India. Wishes more parents were like that.

    all demands are not meant to be fulfilled… its like a semi barbaric act in this civil soceity which we are carrying since ages…

    Great topic to write on and i just wish that we all come out of shell of these tantrums and make this place a better place to live in.Marriage is sacred and let it not be a burden on the shoulders of people especially girl side only be in terms of money, tasks and all..Thhis needs to be jointly handled and celebrated with fun..

    hope we can bring in some change with our small contributions…..

    superb written…. hats off….

    This is atrocious. But may I tell you not to label it a something that happens in India 🙂 Have you not heard of weddings breaking up in hours outside india for chaotic reasons? Why this talk on a country, a entire billion of them for one barbaric set of parents!

    This is freaky! Imagine the plight! Good you are spreading the word 🙂 And yes daughters today really REALLY need supportive parents!!

    Daughters need supportive parents!!! We should have a parent education class which will empower parents to stand by their daughters!
