Hubby turns 'brother' for wife's love

Moved by the separation of the two lovers owing to a ‘forced marriage’, a newly married youth in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut town did something which a very few would emulate.

Forty days after he had tied the nuptial knot, Nitish Tyagi had his wife Arti tie ‘rakhi’,  a sacred thread of protection embellished with the affection of a sister for her brother, on his hand declaring himself as her “brother” and vowed to unite her with her lover.

A resident of Devlok colony in Meerut, Nitish married Arti from Rudrapur in Uttarakhand on May 6. On the very first day, Arti informed Nitish about her lover Vineet, with whom she had tied the knot secretly at a temple.

 She also told him that her parents had forcibly got her married to Nitish and that she did not recognise her marriage with him. “Though I was shocked to hear this in the beginning,  I realised her predicament. She had been forcibly separated from her lover, besides her marriage with me was under coercion,” Nitish said,.

He added that there was no point in living with Arti when she did not recognise him as her husband. “I want her to be happy and she will be happy only with Vineet,” he said.
An indebted Arti also echoes similar sentiment. “Nitish is doing what any brother will do for his sister,” she said.
