It’s not quite a Romeo and Juliet story; the Indian version apparently goes a bit differently than the English.
The Indians don’t play around with that caste system they have. Even after all this time, it’s still serious business.
From the Daily Mail:
A family accused of killing their daughter because she fell in love with a lower-caste man are facing a murder investigation in southern India.
The 21-year-old victim – named only as Madhu in local media – is said to have been killed because she refused to give up the romance.
Reports say the university graduate had threatened to elope with the boy if her parents did not give the relationship their blessing.
Investigators in Nanjangud believe the family killed Madhu and then arranged a quick funeral and cremation before anyone could inspect her body.
Neighbours had become suspicious of the rapid funeral, and believe that the girl’s family were trying to hide something. They reported the girl’s death to police, who have now seized her remains.
We’re exposed to a bit more of Middle Eastern Muslim culture, with the bizarre prescriptions of Sharia law and the ugly manifestations of it with respect to things like honor killings within families. Hindu culture has its own bits of barbarity as well.
