I'm Wasim Akram's wife: UP woman
November 27, 2005 16:26 IST
A mother of four children in Uttar Pradesh's Burhanpur district declared herself a wife of former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram.
Krishna, a clerk in commercial tax department, claims to have accepted Akram as her husband since she saw his performance on television during an Indo-Pak cricket match in 1999.
She has shunned her marriage with a retired government servant.
"I am yet to meet him. Whether he accepts me or not, I will spend rest of my life as his wife," Krishna told on Saturday.
Krishna claims that a 'godly figure' clad in white clothes had shown her Akram's face in her dreams telling her that it was that of her husband's.
She claims to have started believing in the 'godly figure' following her family's tremendous improvement in the financial condition after 'he gave a fruit to eat'.
Though her change in behaviour has had little effect on her two sons and two daughters, her husband claims it has destroyed his family life.
In a quest to meet Akram, Krishna had also paid a futile visit to the Pakistani cricketer's ancestral village in Amritsar.
"Wherever he is, one day, I will meet him," she said.
Krishna, who discarded the attire of a Hindu married woman in 1999, claims that she is unperturbed by the response she gets from her office or from the neighbourhood.
