Rajasthan, the land of Meera Bai, has now got a Meera Bai of the modern age. Pooja Singh, a postgraduate in Political Science, has tied the nuptial knot with her Thakurji.
Although, as per reports, her reasons for doing this are quite different from those of the original Meera Bai. Pooja is not interested in a ruined life after marriage because of marital disputes. “I have seen disputes between husband and wife on very trivial matters. Their lives get spoiled in disputes, and the worst sufferers are women in this, so I have decided to get married to Thakurji,” said Pooja.
A resident of Narsinghpura village in Jaipur, Pooja Singh is 30 years old and married Thakurji on December 8th. Her father, who retired from BSF, is annoyed with this marriage and did not attend the wedding function, but her mother, Ratan Kanwar, supported this and performed Kanyadan.
Pooja Singh performed all the rituals related to marriage with Thakurji’s statue in the presence of around 300 family members and well-wishers in a formal marriage ceremony.
