Taking A Stand: Couple Replaces Flower Garland With Onion And Garlic


The skyrocketing prices of onions and garlic are making it no less precious than gold. People are considering onion and garlic as a good alternative for gifts and other precious items. In such a satirical incident a couple in Varanasi on their wedding day exchanged garlands as is the norm in Indian custom but instead of flowers the garlands were fashioned out of onions and garlic. The pair apparently wanted to make a statement against the high prices of onions.

Guests at the wedding also decided to present the newlyweds the highly sought commodity - baskets of onions! Kamal Patel of the Samajwadi Party said: "Prices of onions are touching the sky from last one month so now people have started considering onion as precious as gold. At the wedding, the bride and groom used the garland of onions and garlic. The prices of onion have risen to Rs 120 per kg."

Another Samajwadi Party leader Satya Prakash said the new couple wanted to oppose the high prices of onions and so decided on this unusual method."The bride and groom have tried to convey a message by opposing the skyrocketing prices of onions and other food commodities. Samajwadi Party has carried out several protests against such issues. This is a historic event for the couple," he added. According to the SP leaders, the price of onions continues to surge in the markets of Varanasi.
