A wedding video of a woman thrashing her son on his wedding day in Bharuwa Sumerpur of Hamirpur district in Uttar Pradesh, India has gone viral on social media.
The groom’s mother had been against the union, and vehemently refused her son from marrying Ankita because she was from a different caste. But her son, Umeshchandra, went against her wishes, and married Ankita in a court ceremony.
After the court wedding, the bride’s father decided to celebrate the nuptials in grand style, renting a district hall for the celebration. The family of the groom were not invited due to their opposition to the union. However, the groom’s mother got wind of the ceremony and set out to the venue with the aim of making a scene, and perhaps beating some sense into her son.
When she got to the venue, the couple was already on the stage, exchanging garlands. But the mother was undeterred, she pushed the photographer out of the way, made her way to her stage, removed a kind of decorative barrier erected on the stage, pulled off her slipper, took hold of her son, and started walloping him with the slipper.
It took several people to pull the mother down, with her wriggling to give her son a spank one more time. She was eventually carried away and escorted out of the venue. Even as she was taken out, she kept insulting her son with every step she took.
With the wedding heavily distracted, the remaining rites had to be done in a hurry.
The question again- Possessed or Possessive?
