Way to go, Draupadi!

I missed the actual news item, but saw a comment on it in, of all places, the Economic Times. It seems a drunk husband staked his wife for Rs. 5000 in a card game and lost her. In the Kundapura Kedarpur village in Dhampur tehsil of UP’s Bijnore district, a drunken Ram Singh lost his money, then his ring and watch. Then he staked his wife a la Yudhishthira and lost her too. The winner went to Ram Singh’s house to claim the wife, and this is where the story diverges from the Mahabharata. Instead of submitting in floods of tears, the woman picked up a faggot and beat up the winner with it. That man went running to the police station. Anyway, the loser borrowed the 5000 from somewhere and paid off the winner, but when he reached home, his wife was waiting for him and gave him a sound thrashing. She stopped only when he begged forgiveness and promised never to gamble again ever.
Good going!
Random Thought: Why is it that when a man hits a woman it is serious, but when a woman hits a man it is hilarious?
