The locals of a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Ambedkarnagar were witness to a bizarre wedding where the bride reportedly chose the groom from a lucky draw. This wasn’t any reality show but an actual wedding in a village where failing to decide whom she liked the most among four prospective grooms, the bride finally chose one of them through a lucky draw, media reports said. The incident, under the Azimnagar police station came to light when the girl reportedly left home with four young men five days before the incident. She stayed at the house of a relative of one of the boys.
The girl’s family soon were able to learn of her whereabouts. Upon finding her, the family was determined to lodge a complaint against the four youths. The village Panchayat, however, held a meeting regarding the incident and gave the family an alternative proposal of getting her married to one of these boys.
The girl was asked whom she wished to get married to but to everyone’s surprise, she wasn’t able to decide who she liked the most. Reports also said that none of the youths were also agreeing to get married to the girl and failing to find a solution to the problem straightaway, the panchayat decided to take a unique route.
They asked someone to write down names of the four youths and put it in a bowl and one piece of paper was drawn out of it which contained of the youth’s names. The decision was then finalised to get the girl married off to the man who’s name featured on that paper.
