Boy’s family has to love girl’s family.Girl and boy still love each other. They get married.The author describes who love marriages are struggled broken on the name of caste and religion due to their cultural difference. That how an Indian families are not open towards welcoming girl or boy of different caste. As they fear that a girl will not adjust in a new culture or she may take a boy along with her is very strong. The language used is very simple and easy to understand with a humorous tone.
