Current Even #1

India's Romeo and Juliet tragedy

The article I chose has a lot of similarities with Shakespeare's story Romeo and Juliet. These were two lovers who were not suppose to be together because of different religion and they fell in love with each other randomly and in first sight. They got married, but their families did not agree on it and threatened to kill them if they were together, they decided that the only way that they can be together was to kill themselves. This happened  in January 2015 in Phaphunda India, it is a current event because the police decided to act by pressing charges  on the families right now for making the teens kill themselves. The theme of this story is similars to Romeo and Juliets, and that is nothing will stop two people that love each other from being together. Even religion which in this case is the thing that is trying to stop them from being together.
