Indian village bachelors building road to access potential brides

By Super Admin

Melbourne, Mar 7 (ANI): Desperate bachelors in a remote village in India are building a new road, which they hope will provide them access to potential brides.

Known as the "village of unmarried people", tiny Barwaan Kala has more than 120 local blokes who are still single.

They blame their celibacy to the remoteness of the village, which is located high in the Kaimur hills in the west of Bihar.

"The biggest problem for us and for outsiders is the difficult hilly terrain to pass through," the Daily Telegraph quoted bachelor Ram Lal Yadav, 40, as saying.

Thus, they have now found a solution to find a mate for them, and have started building a road themselves.

Armed with shovels, chisels, hammers and spades, they have already laid more than half of the planned 6km road to their village in just six months.

But all is still not hunky dory with them, as reports have suggested that the area is in a wildlife-protected zone, where road construction has to meet strict guidelines.

Thus, authorities could force them to give up the project any day. (ANI)
