In India it is quite common to see groom, bride and guests at a marriage dancing almost insanely with nobody bothering to stop them.
In fact others who are not dancing seem to enjoy the peppy music accompanied by the not-so-synchronised but entertaining dance performances.
But then there is a limit to everything and one’s enjoyment remains so as long as it doesn’t create trouble for others.
Law of the land deal with such troublesome merry-makers with an iron fist.
This is exactly happened in a city in India’s Uttar Pradesh recently.
Members of a marriage party along with the groom were fined Rs200,000 (almost Dhs10,000) for dancing in an open roof Audi on a busy road in Muzaffarnagar.
A video that has gone viral on social platforms shows marriage party members grooving with hands up in the air and taking selfies in a cavalcade of high-end cars.
In the stunt on the Muzaffarnar-Haridwar national highway some of the men are even seen hanging out of the windows of their cars.
Police swung into action after receiving the video from a motorist Ankit Kumar who shared the clip on Twitter.
All the nine cars used in the marriage procession were seized and police issued a hefty fine of Rs200,000.
Ankit drew the attention of the authorities towards the fact that marriage party’s stunt poses a danger to the safety of fellow commuters.
"During my journey from Haridwar to Noida, some people in Muzaffarnagar district were putting other people's lives in danger for their entertainment. Hope the traffic police will take cognizance of the matter," Ankit tweeted along with the video.
According to local media reports, one Arjun Singh had fixed his daughter Archana's marriage with a man named Shivam. When the ‘baraat’ (marriage procession) arrived at the bride’s house on June 20, the groom was wearing spectacles all the time.
The people of the village marry someone who was born dead to another person who also died at the time of birth. By doing this they believe that they are honouring the spirit of the dead.
After exchanging garlands and other ceremonies, the couple was preparing for the final ceremony of 'pheras' when Surabhi suddenly fell unconscious beside Manjesh Kumar, the groom. A doctor was called in who declared her dead, saying she suffered a major cardiac arrest.
Later, Islamabad judicial magistrate Umar Shabbir grated the police two-day physical remand of Rashid, who was presented before him handcuffed amid high security.
