After crying “too much” over her Rukhsati, a young bride in India suffered a heart attack and died, leaving her family and guests unhappy and horrified.
It is common for brides on the subcontinent to be sad and cry when their Rukhsati – when they leave their home after the wedding ceremony to accompany the husband – takes place.
In contrast, residents of the Indian state of Odisha in eastern India had a rude awakening when a married woman died of a heart attack just before her Rukhsati due to “excessive crying. “.
According to witnesses at the wedding, the bride cried so hard that she passed out. She was rushed to hospital and pronounced dead by medics, who confirmed her death was caused by a heart attack.
