Rajasthan might be fighting for girl child education, female feticide and purdah system, but an incident earlier this week made us believe that revolution is taking place, slowly but for sure.
A bride in Balesar appeared for her BA 1st year examination on the day of her vidaai ceremony. The woman, Santosh Prajapat, sat on the 1st bench, still wearing her red bridal lehenga and loaded with makeup and jewelry; gave her exam all smilingly.
She got married on Monday night and the vidaai ceremony after wedding was to be held on Tuesday afternoon. Since her exam date fell on the same day, she decided to stop everything else and pursue her dream. This victory didn’t come to her easy since she had to argue and convince her family and in-laws. She says: “I didn’t want my 1 year hard work go waste. I want to become something in my life.”
We’re so proud of you, Santosh.
