HARYANA VILLAGE SAYS YES TO LOVE MATCHES AND NO TO CASTE NAMES
How to cite the Article
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.
