July 26, 2021: Most north Indian wedding are incomplete without baaratis dancing their hearts out and bursting of firecrackers. However, one such celebration played spoilsport during a recent wedding in Rajasthan when the crackers startled the horse and it ran off with the groom! The video of the incident is now going viral, leaving netizens laughing out loud online.
The incident was reportedly caught on camera in Rampura village of Nasirabad town in Ajmer district. As the groom’s side was ready for the procession, the ritual feeding of the horse was taking place. During the ceremony, someone was seen bursting a cracker quite close to the animal, leaving it spooked.
Suddenly the mare broke off and took the groom along with her! Video showed the owner of the horse running behind it to hold the reins, however, failed to control it.
According to local reports, the alarmed animal ran about 4 kms, before finally members of the groom’s family were able to catch them and rescue the man.
Luckily, the man or the animal were not harmed and after sometime, the groom continued with his baarat for Jaipur.
As the clip went viral, although many thought it was hilarious, others warned that it could have ended badly. Many also advised people to be mindful near animals with crackers and loud music as it easily ticks them off.
