Meghu Bhoi, a resident of Tarsuguda village under Gudbhela block in Odisha’s Bolangir district had to carry his dead wife on his shoulders and then was forced carry out the last rites using tyres, dry twigs and leaves. It was all because his family has been banished by the people of his community because his daughter married outside the community a few years back.

Meghu’s wife, Sajna, 45, who was complaining of an upset stomach was admitted to the local hospital at Gudbhela this tuesday and the doctor after examining her prescribed some medicines to be brought immediately. Meghu, who was short on cash sought help from his relatives who denied any help to him. Although, a local chemist helped him by lending some medicines, but by the time he reached  the hospital, his wife had passed away.

Heartbroken, he approached his relatives and family to help him with the funeral process and perform the last rites. But they were adamant in their decision to banish his family and refused to participate in the process. eft with no choice, Meghu carried his  wife on his shoulders and burned her body with large tyres.

The incident is similar to another incident from Orissa where the man carried his wife’s body for 12 km. These incidents expose the orthodox mentality of our society.Inter-caste marriage is still a taboo which weighs down on the progress of the society and leaves a deep scar on the family being ostracised.

The Logical Indian is disheartened with the news and hopes that this community can  bring back more people from the tangles of a conformist society.
