Though the number of love affairs and marriages might have gone up across the country the reality remains different in this modern era. The heinous crime ‘Honour killing’ where the love buds are killed by their kin or other members of their caste is still very rampant.
Now to be young and in love has proved fatal for many young girls and boys across the country, especially when it comes to women.
