I read this most amusing piece of news today. The Indian Army wants to know just why one of their men wants to marry a woman from Sri Lanka. They want to know under what circumstances the two met. And why. They want to not relieve the man of his duties because they’re terribly understaffed.
And a High Court judge wants them to know that they’re just an army. Not a khap panchayat.
Most amusing, isn’t it?
