A girl was forced to marry a dog because her superstitious family thought her
teeth had brought them bad luck. Seven-year-old Shivam Munda was told to wed the stray after her upper teeth arrived before her lower teeth.
She's lucky that's all she had to do. So help me if any daughter of mine ever lets her upper teeth come in first...
Her father Kundan, a coal miner, said it was a bad omen and had brought an
"evil eye" on her and her family.
I remember getting the "evil eye" a few times when I was a kid. If only I had known that I could have averted all of that trouble by simply marrying the dog, my childhood would have been much less traumatic.
