SOS – source of strength

Driving from Khajuraho, i met this newly married couple in Gwalior outskirts. They were headed to start a new life – and a new home – on the man’s bullock cart. Adorning the cart were the gifts they got on their wedding – most of which formed the dowry. While the groom looked eager to reach, the new bride was speaking to her mother on her mobile phone stifling sobs.

“This is how they get their courage,” he told me with a wink.
