For two young men from Barmer and Jaisalmer, Monday proved to be the biggest day of their lives. The brides of these young men have come to their house after a long wait of 2 years of marriage. Due to the ongoing tension between Indo-Pak, both the brides could not come to their in-laws.
Meanwhile, another bride is still stuck in Pakistan due to lack of visas. A child has been given a visa to drink his milk. In such a situation, that child has reached India with her grandmother without her mother. People living in the border region still have relations in Pakistan across the border. But now this link has started to weaken slightly.
Traditionally brides welcomed at Attari-Wagah border
After the long wait of two years after marriage, the relatives of these two brides, who returned to International Women’s Day, welcomed them on the Attari-Wagah border in a traditional way. Nepal Singh of Baia village in Jaisalmer district was born in Sindh province of Pakistan. He went to Pakistan two years ago with a procession from the Thar Express. Nepal Singh was married on 26 January 2019. Similarly, Mahendra Singh of Girab area of Barmer district was married in Pakistan on April 16, 2019. He too went to Pakistan with a procession from the Thar Express.
Pak brides did not get visa
Both the grooms wanted to come with their brides, but in the meantime India-Pakistan relations soured. Pakistan also stopped the Thar Express running between the two countries. In such a situation, the Indian groom stayed in the in-law’s house for 3-4 months so that the situation becomes normal and if the brides get a visa, then return to their homeland. But Pak brides did not get visas. After this, these grooms returned to their homeland without the brides. Now, two years later, on Monday, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Pakistani brides have reached India from the Wagah border.
