Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 27, 1974 Railway strike to blame for Indian marital crisis BOMBAY (CP) George Fernandes, boss of the Indian Railwaymen's Federation and strong-man of the Socialist Party, is having trouble from an unexpected quarter. Parents of nearly half a mil- lion young men and women are blaming Fernandes for up- setting their marriage sched- ules. The recent national rail strike not 'only halted more than long-distance trains but made it impossible for some brides and bridegrooms to exchange marital vows. "Hindu India has never seen a marital crisis of this dimen- said Swami Gurunath Shastri, a leading marriage priest.

The date cannot be changed at short notice. This is why the rail strike plunged so many Hindu families into gloom. Padma Menon, 22-year-old daughter of a senior govern- ment official in Bombay, was to have travelled to Kot- tayam, nearly miles away, for her marriage with Raman Nair, a landlord's son. A party of nearly 100 rela- tions was to have travelled with the bride. But they found themselves stranded in Bom- bay. Since trains are the chief mode of transportation in In- dia and airlines are beyond the means of most citizens, the rail strike made it im- possible for the parents of most of the brides and bridegrooms to make alter- nate travel arrangements. But not all the brides are un- happy about the halted wed- dings. Quite a few did not like the husbands-to-be chosen for them by their parents. They now will be able to have a wider choice. As pretty Chandrika Gupta, a University of Bombay scholar, put it: "Many brides must have welcomed the rail strike. They have a second chance to seek real marital happiness."
