Something very strange made this couple call off their Wedding…

This one trumps all levels of weird ( Although I feel that is only because we are used to the others ) as the groom and the bride called off their wedding over a debate on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

This story is about an ex-couple, natives of Kanpur, in conversation began to talk about the current economic scenario in India.

The girl, a current government employee, obviously passionate about the subject blamed the current administration for what according to her was a sorry state of affairs. The groom would not have it, a businessman and a Modi supporter, he was quick to come to the government’s defense.

Now normally, a debate would turn into an argument, an argument into a fight, in this case, they called off their wedding! WTF!!!!

This adds to the increasing list of ‘bizarre’ reasons for which weddings have been called off in India.From bride’s IQ to groom’s fairness, from groom’s side demand of non-veg meals to bride’s objection on “naagin dance”, we have recently witnessed the most bizarre reasons for cancellation of marriage but we do not know what level of weird this is! 😀

All we can say is we wish them the best individually, they really really stood their ground on this one didn’t they? What do you think?

9 of the funniest wedding matrimonial ads you will ever read!

India is considered a rather weird place as far as dating and marriage are concerned, we Indians are quite expectant when it comes to settling down and it becomes a comedy of errors when we try to fit expectations within a small matrimonial column.

You’d still have simple parents looking for the perfect son or daughter-in-law. The thought is novel. It’s perfectly fine to go for arranged marriages if it’s your cup of tea.

But some matrimonial ads are just plain hilarious and idiotic, check these out!

Lol, Twitter chalega?

Who wears jeans in the house??????

Hahaha we wonder how that went

Hahahaha, how pissed off is this parent!

Are you convented?

LOL, I dont know what to say about this

We wonder what an Innocent Divorcee is?

Lol! Bechaare

Last but not the least, This is Shashi Tharoor’s matrimonial ad! 😛

This Gujarat businessman is changing India, one year at a time!

Remember Gopal Vastapara ? I doubt it, considering all the horrible stuff we hear that is going on around the world, very rarely are the good things in the world remembered.

Let’s refresh our memory, Gopal Vastapara got his son and his daughters married last year. You are probably thinking ( Is this guy for real, what is so great about that)… read on to find out!

Gopal Vastapara is a businessman from Surat in Gujarat who is blessed enough to enjoy the best life can offer but when he decided to get his son married, he decided he still had not achieved everything.

Pursuing his keen drive for philanthropy he decided to organize a small sombre ceremony for his sons wedding inviting only close friends and family and decided to spend a large part of the money on organising a lavish mass wedding ceremony for a 100 girls, all who came of economically  backward families and who he christened as his daughters.

The girls were married on April 28 at a function in Chamardi village located in Amreli district of Gujarat.

The humble Mr.Vastapara said,”“We decided to get our son married in a very simple function and instead use the money to help 100 girls from poor families by arranging their marriages. Our motto is Sarva Dharam, Sarva Samaj (All religion, all communities). The girls who will get married are from various castes and include six Muslims too,”

Not only did the girls have the liberty to invite whoever they wanted, but Mr.Vastarpara also provided each happily married couple with all household essentials required by them to start their new life together.

The massive ceremony saw 60,000 people attending and all of the Rs 3 Crores were paid by Mr.Vastapara.

If that wasn’t enough, all Mr.Vastapara asked for in return was that each couple pledge to save a girl child and save the environment.

In a society where infanticide and dowry still blatantly exist, Mr.Vastarpara stood as a shining light to show that love for humanity should come from within.

Now the best part, Last year was just the beginning. Mr.Vastapara has pledged, that he will be sponsoring such mass marriage ceremonies for at least 10 more years if not more!

Take a bow Mr.Vastapara, we hope you keep inspiring!

A Ph.D. student committed suicide because of dowry demands by her in-laws.

Manjula Devak, a Ph.D. student at the IIT – Delhi campus had everything going for her. A bright future awaited thanks to her brilliant intellect and past work experience in the US.

Manjula Devak. Final year Ph.D. Student

Unfortunately, that was not to be. Tired of being harassed by her In-Laws for Dowry, Manjula hung herself at her apartment in the IIT-Delhi campus.

A conversation Manjula had with her sister.

Manjula’s father confirmed that it was because of the torture that she ended her life. Manjula and Ritesh Virha got married 4 years back i.e. in 2013.

They shifted from Bhopal to IIT Delhi, since she wanted to pursue her Ph.D. in water resources.

Before joining IIT, Manjula had worked in the US as well.

When Manjula committed suicide, Rajesh was in Indore. No one had seen her since Monday and on Tuesday evening, Manjula’s friends entered her home. After finding the room door locked from within, they informed the cops who broke it down. They rushed her to the hospital, but she was declared dead on arrival.

According to Manjula’s father, the in-laws were demanding a dowry of Rs 20 Lakhs, because her husband had quit his job and wanted money for a business venture.

This was not the first time Manjula had tried to take this extreme step, in 2015 Manjula had tried to end her life by slitting her wrists.

It makes me question the ‘modern fabric’ we like to think our society is made of, we are not even close to it. How can one live, knowing that they drove someone else to take such an extreme step I will never know.

It is extremely important that the topic of Dowry is broached again, very seriously. We can see it still very much exists across all strata of Indian Society and it has to be fought against and abolished.

Manjula Devak.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to Manjula’s family, and I hope that whoever is proven responsible for this should be punished in the most extreme sense permitted within the scope of the law.

Forget about finding your soulmate…people have started marrying themselves!

Marriage since time immemorial has been a ceremony where two souls become one and an institution is created. One of Family and love where two people live happily ever after till death do them part.

But, hang on. There is a new relationship trend in town.

People are marrying themselves. The concept of Sologamy is when a person loves himself/herself so much that they want to get married. Literally, you read it right.

Take the case of Erika Anderson.

In her own words,”“I would describe it as women saying yes to themselves,” Anderson said. “It means that we are enough, even if we are not partnered with someone else.”

Apparently, when she walked down the aisle, there was no one looking at her, which is how she wanted it.

Anderson said she grew tired of people asking why she was still single. So, in front of family and friends, she married herself.

Self-marriage—or sologamy—is growing. Partly because it’s popping up in pop culture, like when an episode of ‘Sex and the City’ floated the idea.

Anderson married herself to celebrate independence and believes others should, too.

“You’re worth it!” Anderson exclaimed.

She celebrated her anniversary by going on a solo trip to Mexico.

Now the best part, she also dates and is open to marrying someone else. Would that mean she is cheating on herself?

Slowly and steadily, the trend is catching on and many businesses seem to be using this stupidity as a business opportunity, offering sologamy ceremony kits, wedding bands etc.

What do you think? Would you marry yourself?

A wedding in UP got called off because of 2 Rasgullas. Yes, you read that right, 2 Rasgullas!

As diverse as the country itself, India’s wedding traditions are a talk of legend. We have heard of 400 Crore weddings, Bride and Grooms entry involving spaceships, we have also heard of a wedding getting called off because of the choice of biryani! But, what happened earlier this week tops the list!

It happened in Kurmapur village in Unnao district, about 70 km from Lucknow. The marriage of Shiv Kumar (25), a resident of Khutaha village in Unnao, was arranged by his father one Satyanarayan with Kamini (name changed) from the nearby Kurmapur village.

The baraatis reached the village, with the groom,  to solemnize the marriage on April 14. Inebriated

Rasgulla Wedding by The Wedding Planners Diary

Drunk baraatis gyrated on loud music when they reached the venue. They were welcomed by the bride’s father and relatives, with a sprinkle of rose petals. Cold drinks and steamed hot coffee were served with snacks.

Since the baraat had reached a little late, the groom’s father requested for dinner as soon as the dwaarchaar (ceremony at bride’s door) begin. Baraatis were requested to have dinner the moment the ceremony began.

A lavish buffet spread was laid out in a seperate pandal for the baraatis to enjoy.

Wedding Buffet

Suddenly, a heated argument ensued between the dumb shit cousin of the bride and an idiotic cousin of the groom.Lol, this is where it begins.

The groom’s cousin, Manoj, served himself two rasgullas, much to the annoyance of a close relative of the bride, who was managing the sweet stall. He was instructed to serve only one rasgulla to each baraati. The infuriated relative objected to Manoj taking two rasgullas.

Arguments turned into a scuffle and soon more baraati’s joined Manoj and beat up the bride’s relative. The venue soon turned into a free for all.

Punches and blows were being exchanged like they are in a bar fight. Both sides grabbed whatever they could get their hand’s on and started hurling it at each other.The food pandal came crashing down in no time.

The bide and the groom’s father, who were performing the dwaarchaar ceremony, ran towards the war zone to understand what led to the sudden free-for-all. They tried to pacify but none of the sides backed down.An angry idiotic Manoj, along with other baraatis, abused and thrashed up the bride’s father and other close relatives. It got to a point where someone was about to pull a gun, but to everyone’s surprise, better sense prevailed.

The police, somehow, counseled both sides and restored peace. Village elders and the panchayat were called to sort out the issue and allow the marriage ceremony to be solemnized in their presence. The bride, who was seeing the whole drama from the rooftop refused to marry, I wonder why.

Both sides repented the incident over an extra rasgulla and pleaded the girl to complete the marriage ceremony. But she did not budge even on repeated requests from her parents. Finally, the marriage was called off. Gravies on their faces and dresses, baraatis and groom returned to their village without the bride.

I can not even understand how many different types of dumb and disgusting one has to be to be able to behave like this, period. It does not matter whether it is a wedding or at home, how fucking stupid can you be ?
