It was a typical, old-fashioned arranged marriage. The bride had no clue about the bridegroom until the wedding day. And last Sunday, on this 20-year-old Bangalore woman's big day, she found out that her marriage to a stranger was a recipe for disaster.
According to Makkal Osai, the wedding reception was under way at a hall when relatives from both sides started bickering over the biryani (a Malay rice-based dish) being served.
The bridegroom's family took exception to the fact that it was chicken, not mutton, biryani on the menu. As emotions ran high the feisty bride declared her decision to call off the wedding.
She said that even though it was just a fight over biryani, she felt that the union itself was doomed to fail.
