Next time at a wedding don’t ever gift a Langur : This groom now in big trouble because of it

Wedding as people claim is a joyous ceremony which couple participates in to commit their futures to each other. If things turn out well, it is usually accompanied by a happy presence of family and friends.

As weddings are positive occasions they are usually accompanied with weddings gifts for the couple. This gifts business does cause a problem most of the time, with people scratching their heads to determine what they should bring as a present.

With generic gifts like bedsheets, crockery and wall clocks possibly almost a step away from getting banned as wedding gifts, the invitees have a real need to reinvent themselves and come up with memorable presents, and for that thinking out of the box might be needed.

Thinking out of the box is considered an important trait in the human society even though no such box in question has till date been discovered out of which one’s thoughts need to get out.

Such an out of the box thought was applied by the in-laws of a Haryana groom. As per the report, the groom Sanjay Poonia was gifted a Langur by his in-laws during his wedding on 11th February with Ritu. Turns out that Sanjay, a resident of Tohana town had a monkey menace in his fields.

So when his father-in-law came to visit him, he too noticed the trouble and was told by Sanjay that he is planning on getting a Langur to drive them away. The father-in-law liked the idea and decided to surprise Sanjay by gifting him a Langur on his wedding.

Things though didn’t work out as happily ever after for Sanjay, Ritu and the Langur as a few days later Sanjay was in a deep trouble with wildlife officials who have now booked him under the wildlife protection act.

Turns out that the Langur is a protected species and it is illegal to own or trade it. Violating the same might lead to a seven-year imprisonment and/or a fine of Rs 25,000. After a wildlife official came to now about the Langur’s presence, the cops came to Sanjay’s house and took the animal away. Sanjay, as a result, has also been booked under the sections 9, 39 and 52 of the wildlife protection act.

The Langur was to be examined by doctors on Saturday after which he would be sent to the zoo. The police would also be investigating as to who sold the Langur to the in-laws. In their defence, Sanjay’s father has claimed that they weren’t aware of the wildlife protection act and assured that they hadn’t harmed the animal.

So finally as a lesson one should ensure that the wedding gifts they give don’t end up putting the recipients in jail, which might put a strain on the relationship, to say the least. Thus gifting animals like Langurs, tigers, giraffes etc might not be such a good idea.

Along similar lines, other gifts treadmills and cookbooks may also be a bad idea as they could end up offending the couple who might wonder if you are unhappy with their weight or cooking skills.
