There are no families in Punjab which have not sent a member to the Defence Services. And may of them die in wars . Such situations create more number of widows in Punjab-families.

A quick engagement, followed by a massive wedding, a huge dowry and a honeymoon, after which the NRI husband flies out of India while the wife waits for her visa.. Thats how thousands of Punjabi women describe their plight. According to NGOs working in the Doaba region of Punjab, over 20,000 girls have not seen their husbands after their honeymoon.Eighty per cent of the marriages to NRI men in Punjab are doomed, as the husbands never return to take their brides, says Balwant Singh Ramoowalia, the lone crusader for the helpless NRI wives.The desire to go overseas gets manifested during the wedding season when parents force girls to marry a man whom she barely knows. If all goes well, the girls family feels proud of her Canada-based daughter, but if the marriage fails then the girl becomes a pariah in her own family.
