New Dehli Lesbian Soap Opera

Same-sex marriage in city shocks families

NEW DELHI: When Geeta and Babli became friends after they met at a wedding five years ago, nobody imagined that they would end up getting married one day. The two got married at an Arya Samaj temple in Karol Bagh on Sunday and their families promptly disowned them.

Sparks first flew when the 23-year-old Geeta and 33-year-old Babli, both residents of Bappa Nagar in central Delhi's Karol Bagh area, met during Geeta's elder sister's marriage to Babli's younger brother. And then passions flared as the two continued their secret liaison. Their love remained hidden and it was not until two years ago that the families suspected a lesbian relationship.


Babli's family claims that a month ago Babli and Geeta eloped. On Sunday, they landed at Babli's house declaring that they had got married. Both families however refused to accept them or let them in.

On Wednesday night, they reached Geeta's house and tried to convince the family one more time to accept their wedding. There was apparently an argument between the couple and Geeta's family which led Geeta to call the police.

Nice to know we're no more backwards than..... India.

A Bollywood movie is not far behind.

I heard about this!

Apparently the ceremony was about three hours long, extremely melodramatic, and both bridal parties broke into intricately-choreographed dance numbers no fewer than five times.

Heh ... I saw some bollywood movie (or music video, can't really tell the difference) being shot in Luzern, Switzerland. Kept wondering why Indian music was being blasted outside, then saw all those poor women in skirts. Not really dressed for the climate, considering....
