ABSTRACT

Haryana’s infamous khaps are known for condoning honour killings  and telling women not to wear jeans or use mobiles. But in Barsola, the  winds of change are blowing. The caste names are given up and children  are now adding their village name as a marker. Love marriages, inter-caste  unions, and interfaith weddings are accepted. Traditional norms are thus  changing and social reforms are taking roots in making village couples  fear-free of being reprimanded by khaps.
