The title sounds filmy, isn’t it? The inside story is equally thrilling.
The story hails from Rohtas district, Bihar. Vishal Singh alias Teju, 25 YO is an army clerk from Maharajganj village under Tilauthu police station limits. Five years ago he had met his relative, Bhikhari Yadav’s daughter Laxmina Kumari from Baradih Village in a marriage function and both had fallen in love, reported Hindustan Times. However, they had their relationship hidden from everyone.
Vishal was on leave and on Wednesday night he came to know that everyone from Laxmina’s family is sleeping on the rooftop leaving her alone in her room on the ground floor. He thought he could utilize the opportunity to meet his girlfriend and tried sneaking into her house. However, one of her family members woke up and caught him. He was mistaken for a thief and a mob gathered all set to thrash him.
Anticipating some terrible consequence, the couple confessed their relationship before all. The man was then locked up in a room, his family and the police were informed.
Vishal’s grandfather, Panchu who’s also an ex-sarpanch is a respectable personality reached the site and a meeting from both the villages were called. The elderly people met and decided that since the couple was of marriageable age and also both belonged to the same Yadav community, they must be married to each other. Nobody seemed to oppose and the priest was called to begin the rituals of marriage.
Hundreds of villagers including Indrapuri PACS chairman Umesh Kumar Singh and other village and block officials attended the wedding ceremony.
Panchu, the groom’s grandfather was amongst the first to bless the newly Weds and expressed his Joy over his grandson’s dowryless marriage. Both families were equally happy and distributed sweets among guests. The groom finally returned with his bride on Thursday morning.
The incidents took unexpected turns but gladly ended on a happy note. And we’re pretty sure the out-of-the-box love story is going to be remembered for years to go. The maturity shown by the villagers and the decision taken by them is really appreciable, at a time when village sarpanch and community members often make their way to NEWS for their weird decisions this incident shows there is still some hope left.
