Women sacrificing love for parents common in India, says SC 18.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Unsuccessful love stories have found a very vivid description in a Supreme Court observation wherein it has said that women sacrificing their relationship to accept parents decision is a common phenomenon in India. The apex court noted this in a judgement which set aside the conviction and life sentence of a man who had survived a pact with a woman to commit suicide immediately after secretly entering into wedlock. While the 23-year-old woman could not be saved in the incident of 1995, the man suffered the ordeal as the police booked him for the offence of killing her. The top court noted that the woman might have first "unwillingly" agreed to go by her parents wish but later she apparently changed her mind which appeared from the scene of the incident where garlands, bangles and vermilion were found. Further, it observed that the woman might have told her lover that due to resistance from her family, she would not marry him. "Such a reaction on the part of a girl to sacrifice her love and accept a ...
