Bride cancels marriage and kicks out Barat as she didn’t like Nagin Dance of groom, details inside

A bride in Uttar Pradesh has become an inspiration for women in the state after she refused to marry the groom on the wedding day because he was drunk.

It came to light that the bride refused to marry the groom because he broke into a ‘naagin dance’ before the wedding. She immediately took the decision to cancel the wedding as she saw her drunk husband-to-be breaking into snake-y moves. The incident took place in the Mailani area of Lakhimpur Kheri, Bairely, UP.

The man was so excited that he could not stop himself from dancing to naagin song. He jumped to the dance floor again to do the ‘naagin dance’. He also fell on the floor as he was drunk and having witnessed the overly enthusiastic and misbehaving groom, the bride immediately called off the wedding and left the venue.

When the groom got to know that she was going to call off the wedding, he and his friends tried to convince her to not do so but she denied his request, thereafter his friends allegedly misbehaved with her and her family. 

SI Vipin Singh was the one among the investigators who mediated and it was decided that the groom’s family would bear the expenses of the food and decoration and return the gifts.

“The groom was inebriated and didn’t care about anybody during the ceremony. All the pre-wedding ceremonies were complete and whatever happened was just not acceptable. We all are hurt after my sister decided to call off the marriage but we still stood by her decision despite of community pressure because we know that she has taken a right decision,” TOI quoted the bride’s brother as saying.

“After receiving a complaint, we immediately arrived at the spot but both the families decided to mutually resolve this issue on the advice of senior community members. The groom has given in writing that they would return the gifts by November 14 and bear the expenses,” SI Singh reportedly said. 

Well, this should serve as a warning to the grooms who plan to break into animalistic dances at their weddings, not to mention, ones who intend to show up drunk out of their senses.
