Everyone knows how "Veeru" climbed atop a water tank in order to win his "Basanti". But hey, that was onscreen. In real life, are there any Veerus who'll do crazy things to get their beloved? Perhaps not.
This is probably the reason why a young woman aged 22 was so desparate to not get married that she did a very similar thing. Young Usha Bala from Bikaner wanted to study further. But her parents decided it was time for her to get married. As a last ditch effort at resistance, Usha climbed atop a cellphone tower and threatened to jump if her parents did not reverse their decision. As a crowd of over 500 gathered at the spot, our young Basanti kept threatening to jump. The drama continued for an hour after which the girl's grandfather assured her that she would not be forced into marriage. Let's hope the family keeps their promise.
Usha Bala may not want to get married, but judging by her climbing skills, she could try for Roadies next year, right?
