Indian men must own a toilet to marry
THE matrimony bar is set high in Sehore, India. The local rules are that men seeking licence to wed
fblushing brides in mass marriage ceremonies and gain benefits under the Mukhyamantri Kanyadan Yojana (MKY) should have a toilet. To prove that they have, grooms should submit photos of themselves by their bogs.
Will there be cheating, grooms doubling up on toilets or posing in local eateries and DIY shops? District collector Kavindra Kiyawat says not:
“With new modification, we have tried to ensure that there is no chance of fraud and wrong information from the grooms. It is precisely for this reason that we didn’t only ask for providing pictures of toilets, but pictures of grooms with their toilets.”
Another local bigwig adds:
“On Monday, marriages of 184 couples were solemnized in Budhni block in the presence of the chief minister. In every case it was ensured that the groom had a toilet facility in his house.”
No prizes for guessing which of the happy couple will be cleaning band buffing the pride and joy…
