Here’s Why Two Men Tied the Knot in Indore – The Quint

Though same-sex marriages are illegal in India, two Indian men showed courage and tied the knot in a traditional ceremony in Indore.
However, the marital union was not a defiant step taken to prove their love for each other, but to woo the rain god to shower his blessings on the village.
Dressed in traditional attire, friends Sakaram Ahirwar and Rakesh Adjan, both already married to their respective partners with children, from Indore in Madhya Pradesh, exchanged wedding vows in traditional Hindu customs.
The two friends, who work as labours, even organised a feast for their guests that included their wives and children.

Loan Waiver To Farmers: Is the Issue Political or Economical?

 

The farmer agitation in Madhya Pradesh has turned violent. Farmers in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh seek not just loan waivers, but also minimum support prices (MSP).
The farmers in Uttar Pradesh too are pinned down because of their economic losses and loans. In his first cabinet meeting, the new Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had waived off loans given to small and marginal farmers. That still left thousands of farmers out of its ambit. Those who were covered by the scheme had to battle piles of paperwork.
