Only bird and river have no boundaries, can freely cross the border
Lucknow: Love knows no bounds . But enemies of love have often created a separation wall in the past. They are not yet reformed.
Two lovers belonging to two countries have learnt it a hard way. The villain in this case is the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. A boy and a girl living in India and Pakistan, respectively. fell in love and decided to marry.
For performing the marriage rituals the girl applied for visit visa along with her parents and brother. But the Commission put its foot down. Tension on Indo-pak border may be a reason but the authorities will not give any reason for denying the visa.
As the marriage date-- August 1-- has drawn near and the officials have refused to budge, the girl, Sadia (25) has sought external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj's help.
In a tweet on Tuesday, desperate Pakistani girl said, " I am suffering a lot. The High Commission has rejected my visa twice without providing any reason. You are my only hope now".
Sadia had met her beau . Syed (28) in Lucknow in 2012 when she had come to the country. Gradually, they developed a liking for each other. With parental approval they decided to marry. They have been in touch with each other for last five years.
If officials do not relent they will be left with no alternative but to postpone the marriage and be satisfied with long distance phone-calls.
