Following in the footsteps of Sita? Yes and No.
The judge told her "Swear on the Gita,
(That) you'll follow your husband, like Sita."
Said she, with a titter,
"I can follow on Twitter,
But in real life? No way! Woh din beeta*!"
Satish Acharya is a wonderful cartoonist. His delightful take on this news story where the Bombay High Court, during a divorce case hearing, observed that "a wife should be like goddess Sita who left everything and followed her husband Lord Ram to a forest and stayed there for 14 years", inspired this newsmerick. Had been planning to post it for a while now. Sorry for the delay.
*Woh din beeta - Those days are long gone.
