that you allowed her to study and suddenly what happened is my uncle he started beating me. it's just because a few. the love commandos saved seduce alone they called her family repeatedly threatening to go to the media if any harm came to her they didn't have any fear from pulis but to begin to fear from media because they have a political background and a good image and a heart so they were like no we can't make this and the little girl. seemed to have returned home to persuade her family to let her marry and having fallen in love at university she hoped they would accept their relationship despite him being from a lower caste. i was trying to convince them but suddenly one of my uncle.
told me that that boy so hey comes the thing he was like if even if you are not going to marry him or anybody else i will kill him first and i will kill you and then i'll kill myself. my feelings to be don't worry about happiness the only thing which they wonder about is. that it is. all being has many faces. expertize are rising marriages of lovers so either good clean or. good plan. or a man of action national to himself with all its you've quoted it. in international figure. because he has made it is one why six times.

the love commandos help the couples realize their dreams of getting married yet. on the move. but. one of the. once the couple's families discover they have run away they often try to find them and force them back to getting married gives the couple's legal security. and inevitably lead to he was just a muslim when he got the muslim. that i was the awesome guy and of now all this on.
this is that the. middle of the. course i think that i then i. started with the large part of the they heard in the cost of love and. we want to save them and then. we have. over seventy percent of india's population living in rural areas where the caste system matters the most. governing this vast landscape are hundreds of powerful village councils. they are becoming increasingly for their brutal forms of
ecomog the senate nominate that's the school that i'm at by law wolf anybody here the host phatic up the ottawa stillman will school monica missing some i ask him i didn't fund. some of the fan of i know i was my school just say that making you must go to hook up you've got them all kind of. back in delhi the love commandos phones are still ringing. not. not not it was kind of. ironic to me i don't mean that. they're going to pay any money in any new thing and i'm you know i'm in a corner and i'm tempted to come out when i'm going to. join i really monitor gotten it done right.
ballpark try to. get together very much like what act. they say death threats are just part of the job. to them daily can i be on the day of the guy you know one of the local monologues anyway. but it's with. a lot of silly little media moves on you know running the show and then there's a middle dinos with. the whiz on the other the family then a league game like the game. that old game. of winning a little in the wind on the. weekend when the.
j.n.t. who just got married the day after they arrived in delhi. who just parents had arranged her marriage to someone else so are desperately trying to find her. but this is a little bit. of the don't just. want . her parents have discovered she's being protected by the love commandos and keep calling the hotline. here but she got in from yonkers and. i'm going to go i'm going to get out of. your one hundred million that you know.
i don't hear from me i'm just. very very very very sorry. if you want. to know. jayenge says the love commandos were the only people they could turn to for help. but then if you never used to knew you didn't wish when it. was just wish you we're going there live we need to make a move to see you. and so these people. are there sanjay fears who just parents will now come to the shelter and try to force or to return home. movie and.
i. think. india already has the largest number of young people in the world. as their numbers increase so do their voices and they don't just want love. they're demanding freedom from oppression. you're living. in. it if you. like. but with hindu fundamentalism on the rise and heavy moral policing there is still
a long way to go before they will be allowed to even kiss in public. i think that we could let him out of the family government better than the from them going to he's going to be on the family with young americans. today is sanjay's birthday another year spent helping desperate couples. but it costs the love commandos dearly hope the orders from mosul where you'd like to live there to put it down the years that look it up when they get you on the put boat is big enough what it. them up on the. football that the number that they've been listening to tell you that number to them. but money worries and death threats can
and others are like you're not going to we're going to give them the most i read about what they're going to bring with them and if they're going to die like we're going to do i remember her father says because she didn't go through with the arranged marriage she will have to repay the don't remember anything out of them but they made a comment to one of the places for just enough to give when i was going to do is that the price to pay you back and he did he give much i didn't open my mind is on the need to find another but some of the ones i was taking because our little. tutors are going to go there to. their offices and the five c.d.'s of exam why we did you know because we need money and eight minute aikman is me when i started to want to be is not me being out of line to get ideas where that would be cause everything was a bit of a payback is and i didn't want to but i just. i think we're there's one of them is that i'm going to be the one i look at. what about is what i. was
doing was going to move you. you believe by proxy. their future is unclear but puja and her new husband jr don't have any regrets still below that face got in he gave a movie i've made that point as and paying people and i said investigate locum and i just thought thank you madam stuff i get that i thought. good to good to be one but if i decide i don't but if even question. thirty percent of marriages in india today are love marriages. if young people continue to choose their own partners there's a chance of the country might one day become the caste the society the love commandos dreamers. in the country especially. they want
eradication of costs as time went live just when limitless their friend a pretty. and a new generation is moving toward their non-constructive. especially where love commandos is standing with a. lot of that idea. about us get other. leg am i going to go. just as good or in the over amount ever lived mccoy as i am by civil family when was the word mia. love gone and is going to cheering me and boys who were. painting . them and the women gone wish tonight. what is that lovely jack kennedy but i have promised to keep and wise people what i
