Hi sanjana, Surely sad is the event that she lost her would be husband before the actual marriage had taken place and strange is that People can go to extent in the name of practice of this or that. Be it ghost marriage or occult practice. As the girl is accepted by the family is a great relief.

This is really sad. I've never heard of this sort of ceremony. It must be sad for this woman to go through this, or anyone else who has gone through this sort of thing. I feel really sorry for this young woman, not to mention the other women who have gone through this or might have, according to my understanding of the two articles that you linked, sanjana (this is from my understanding of the articles).
