Mother’s Prophesy: Man Sells Everything He Has To Buy A Bike And Travel 6,000 Miles From India To Sweden To See His Love
August 20, 2018
Some people say there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for their love, while there are those who can’t sacrifice even an hour of their free time. So who’s right or wrong here? Everyone has their own truth, and PK Mahanandia, a Dalit Indian artist, had his own as well.
Untouchable – who are they?
As a matter of fact, Untouchable, or a Dalit, is an official caste, formerly known as Harijan, in traditional Indian society. All of the casts had their norms and traditions, but there was one common one – the rule of endogamy. It means that marriage should happen exclusively within the caste community. It’s also considered to be the lowest of India's caste hierarchy.
40 years ago this man sold everything to buy a bike
Indian artist PK Mahanandia traveled 6,000 miles from India to Sweden by bike to see his love, Charlotte Von Schedvin. They met when she visited India as a tourist and fell in love almost at first glance. The man was trying to paint a picture of her in 10 minutes, but it appeared to be no good, so she came the next day again.
