Why do Bholi’s parents accept Bishamber’s marriage proposal?
Bholi’s parents were of the view that her physical injury, appearance and lingual drawback would prove to be obstacles in her marriage. Since Bishamber was from another village he didn’t know much about Bholi and had proposed to marry her without any dowry. However, Bishamber was Bholi’s father’s age and had a problem with his limb and his children from the first wife were grown-ups. Since Bishamber was a well to do shopkeeper, Bholi’s parents considered him as the best match for their daughter and accepted his proposal.
