After a long wait of 22 years, a baraat or wedding procession left a village in Rajasthan last week. Pawan, the groom, could not afford a horse for the wedding procession but his face was lit up as if etching history. Villagers' joy knew no bounds as they welcomed a new bride after 1996.
Reeling under extreme poverty, the village of 300 people has 40 kaccha houses. In the name of development, there is only one primary school and a handpump with saline water.
Of the 125 women who live in this village, only two could write their name correctly. These women have not seen a TV or fridge in their lives.
