Maths has always been the toughest subject to me. Thanks god, my wife didn’t care about it!
But a bride in Bhore of Gopalganj district, India thinks her groom should be a maths wiz.
The bride rejected her groom as he failed to solve a simple mathematical puzzle of four and three during a marriage ceremony there.It so happenned that the marriage of Sarita Kumari, daughter of Vishwanath Prasad of Jagtauli village in Bhore police station, was fixed with Tinku, a resident of Karom village in Siwan district. The `baraat’ party reached the bride’s house and all the rituals were performed by the women of the family.
Tinku was taken inside for marriage and then things went topsy turvy for the bridegroom. Some of the women asked him to give answer to sum of three and four. And Tinku failed to solve the simple mathematical puzzle.
When the bride came to know that her would-be husband could not solve such a simple question, she refused to marry him and left the mandup. Both the families sat together and tried to solve the problem. And finally, the girl agreed to marry Pintu, Tinku’s younger brother. And the marriage was solemnised three days after. And poor Tinku had to return empty-handed.(Times of India)
A hindu organization in Tamil Nadu, India seem to be forming a ”moral brigade” for film actresses these days. Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) wants to enter actresses’ wardrobes to choose which dress is decent and which is not. The group has filed a complaints against bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat over the issue of improper attire at a film function.
HMK accused the actress of wearing transparent and skimpy clothes. (source)
Mallika does wear bold dresses but I don’t think it is problem of a religious organization to point fingers on them.
