An interesting report. Cultural incompatibility at best owing to archaic sensibilities. It is not surprising that such rustic mentality still prevails where it is felt that Bengali are expert in black magic. I, too, have been asked, though long ago, if I knew Bangali jadoo. I was later told, when I expressed incredulous amazement at being asked such a ludicrous question, that there is wide belief that Bengalis know black magic! Jasbir Kaur, the mother, has made quite a haul in this marriage with Rs 4 lakhs cash and Rs 7 lakh jewellery in the kitty. But then the moral of the story - Love Triumphs! The son. Chawla's love, prevailed and the others are up a gum tree now!
