Though the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to completely ban liquor in the state has drawn mixed reactions, it has definitely come as a blessing in the lives of Vijayanti Devi and Jai Govind Singh, a couple who had separated 16 years ago due to the husband’s drinking habit. With the prohibition of alcohol, Vijayanti once again has married Singh, who is now completely staying away from liquor.

 

The wedding that took place on April 18, was initiated by the couple’s daughter Guddi Kumari, who was just one-year-old when her parents separated. She convinced the couple to reunite. The family also printed cards and held a small ceremony in Mohddiganj, Sasaram.

 

They couple were earlier married almost 20 years ago. But Vijayanti (50) was tired of her husband’s chronic alcoholism. Almost, every day he used to beat her and abuse her in the influence of alcohol. So in 2003, she decided to walk out of the marriage with her daughter and vowed never to come back.

 

Since then Mr. Singh (58) has been trying to get rid of his alcohol habit and finally, Nitish Kumar’s decision came as a gift for him. Now he leads a clean and normal life.

 

Even Guddi is also extremely thrilled as she is now getting the opportunity to stay with both of her parents.

 

Nitish Kumar had imposed a complete liquor ban in the state on April 5. Since then, it had a great impact on the residents of the state. Though many people have been engaged in several other drugs, but the greater picture is that the ban has brought a normalcy in the state. The wedding ceremonies now take place without much hassle, as people don’t get to drink heavily and create nuisances. The state government has also claimed that the crime rate in the state has also significantly dropped, as most crimes were committed under the influence of alcohol.

 

Banning consumption of liquor may not be a decision that is favoured by all, but we can see, Bihar is going through some positive changes. We are happy that it is playing a key role in transforming the lives of many people.
