Baat ek suhaag raat ki

leave a comment »

It was one of those girl-meets-boy-on-Facebook-falls-in-love-agrees-to-marry kind of cases. Hema Sherigar’s parents in Bombay should have suspected something when the boy’s side insisted on the marriage rituals being conducted in Karwar, and not Bangalore, where the Sherigars have many friends and relatives. But they didn’t raise any objection and their daughter was married off in a quiet and hurried ceremony.
The asli drama was enacted during the suhaag raat.

Once the bedroom door had been locked, the groom showed the brand new bride a photo album. “This,” he said, pointing out at a group shot, “is my wife, and these are my children.”

You can only call it her good luck for Hema Sherigar managed to escape to Bombay the very next morning.

Her parents told their neighbours that the daughter was away on a business trip.

To this day, they do not know about her misadventure of a marriage.
