BHUBANESWAR: A newly-wed couple in Odisha’s Angul district received onions as gift from their friends.
According to information received here, Santosh Mohapatra of Adimata Nagar had got married and was hosting a reception on Sunday evening.
His friends Jyoti Prakash Mishra, Bijay Prusty and Rajkumar Gupta gave Santosh and his wife a nicely-wrapped parcel and asked them
to open it on the stage itself.
When the groom un-wrapped the parcel, he found onions weighing around two kg. This started a laugh riot in the middle of the function.
Justifying it, Satosh’s friends said onions had become so expensive that they chose to gift them to him on his big day.
Incidentally, onions are being sold in the state for prices ranging between Rs 100 and Rs 160.
With onion prices skyrocketing, social media platforms have been flooded with hilarious memes and jokes on this commodity....
