IF YOU LOVE, YOU FEAR NOTHING
Ajay Singh, 25, met Kavita Solanki, 23, at her cousin’s wedding in 2010. After years of courtship, they decided to get married. Her parents had already fixed her match, and to make things worse, the couple belonged to different castes. “I am an OBC and she is a Jat. Jat apne aage kisi ko samajhte hain kya,” says Ajay. Kavita refused to marry anyone, and rebelled, despite knowing that it could cost them their lives. The couple ran away from Agra and reached Delhi on December 11, last year. “The very next day, we got married in an Arya Samaj temple. When my family got to know, they beat up my husband’s friends for information. They blocked his ATM cards and started tracking his phone. We are living in hiding as our families want to kill us. But they can’t separate us. If you love, you fear nothing,” she says.
