Amravati: In this 21st century when people are capable of reaching moon and mars, age-old irrational concept still prevails in human society where girls are restrained from doing certain things especially participating in the death procession. Recently in Amravati district, seven daughters broke all the rigid rules of the society by shouldering their deceased fatherâ€™s body.
The incident was reported at Warud tehsil in Amravati district where seven daughters not only shouldered their deceased fatherâ€™s body to the crematorium but also lit their fatherâ€™s pyre.
According to the sources Vitthalrao Lokhande, 92, passed away due to old age on Wednesday. He had seven daughters Shobha, Pushpa, Sulochana, Mala, Swati, Sudha and Tai Lokhande. The sisters are married and are living with their in-laws but after getting the news of their fatherâ€™s demise they reached Warud and carried out all the rituals.
