The long and regular power cuts in Uttar Pradesh that make life miserable, has now caused one Pratapgarh pair to call it a day and separate.
Tired of coping with her husband’s refusal to have dinner by candlelight because of the power outages, one wife age 32, has walked out of her 7-year-old marriage saying her husband forced her to stay awake to serve him dinner till the power was restored and any dissent on her part always invited violence.
The weary wife went with her 3 children to a Pratapgarh station officer and told him of her ordeal. The officer tried to placate the husband who denied his wife’s allegations.
Eventually the wife stood her ground and left for Surat along with her mother and children!
