i just wonder..in Bedni caste there is no marriage system? why grown up women should have sardhakayi instead legal marriage? if is like that who has permission to get married ?even in low caste women can get married and have family ..why not this bedni caste? wonder how come hukum nikamma 's get married?
and his other buddhu bro has wife too..
beside why those spineless dumb men are sitting at home and dominating or i must say waiting for to women go outside and work? not even work ..just sold herself..
but men?what they do? doozzing,and sleeping ?
still this kind of system exists?
.. there is no law in that area or part of the country? really it is sad..pathetic..
All over the world in different communities there are lot of repressive traditions against women in different religions communities, countries and this is one of them the good for nothing men eating from such income of Bedia women whether they re sisters daughters and also in some cases wives the rich upper class men exploiting such women and in closed community or village there will be offspring also from this unions who will also have Thakur blood in them like Sugni
Even if there are laws against such practices the arm of law does not reach them and they are ruled by village panchayats which at most times support the rich and mighty as they themselves come from such groups like TJSD in this story.
Yesterday in some channels there was a story of a girl who is a lecturer and with job who refused to accept her childhood/infant marriage and wanted to break free but the village panchayat gave judgement giving the right to the husband to kidnap her and bring her back and spend the family life with the reluctant wife.
the channel was asking the govt to intervene and despite having police protection many times the panchayat wins over a longer time and families give in as they are also part of the village otherwise they are socially ostriched and they are unable to bear the pressure and even if they are ready sometimes the boy/girls are murdered
Kinara another point I wanted to add and then the actual diety is a woman God for both Thakurs and Bednis SIta mayya
