Hooray! Irresistible Valentines Day Offer!

ATTENTION MARRIED COUPLES FROM BANGALORE

Sri Ram Sene (association of the patients of Madhuri's husband Sri Ram Nene) is going to catch dating couples in Bangalore on Valentine's Day and forcibly marry them off (using a stub of turmeric, according to the Times Of India), and then, and this is the best bit, they will take the couples to the sub-registrar's office and register their wedding!

So if you've been putting off marriage registration for lack of time, no permanent address proof, fear of being discriminated against for not knowing Kannada, and not being able to afford bribes in recession time, this is your chance! A 100-rupee meal for two at McDonalds with your feet locked under the table and one had locked over the table while you tear open the unopen-able ketchup packets with the other hand and your remaining teeth: that's all you need to get caught and married legally.

Tip: Leave all evidence of already being married at home, and try to look at each other lovingly. And don't fight over the fries; not only are they bad for health, but that will totally give you away!

ha ha...exactly my thoughts my friend...am tipping off friends who hv got married in the temples and not had the time to get the registration set up....lolz... and all love-crazed girls whose sweethearts are tainted with that dreaded disease commitment-phobia can use our own public servants (for a freaking change) to tie the knot and live happily ever after...Long live V-Day!!!
