Man Files for Divorce As Wife Only Gives Him ‘Ladoos’ To Eat
Indian weddings and family get-togethers are incomplete without sweets especially ladoos. A resident from Meerut district is seeking divorce on the ground that his wife gives him only ‘ladoos’ to eat. Uttar Pradesh man said that under the influence of ‘Tantrik‘ (shaman), his wife gives him four ladoos each to eat in the morning and in the evening. “I am not given or allowed to eat anything else in between,” the man said in a family court. The couple is married for 10 years and has three children together. The man had been ailing for some time and his wife approached ‘Tantrik’, who asked her to give his husband only ‘ladoos’ to eat. Meanwhile, the officials at the family counselling centre were perplexed over the grounds to seek divorce. “We can call the couple for counselling, but we cannot treat the woman for being superstitious,” said the counsellor. She firmly believes that the laddoos will cure her husband and is unwilling to accept otherwise, the counsellor added.
