To Carry Your Spouse

An unusual race was held in the city of Trivandrum recently to publicize an environmental event organized by an NGO. Participants had to carry their spouses on their backs and run 51 meters to the finishing line.

Here is a description of the event with a photo of the winners: Husband Carries Wife and Wins Prize

Strangely enough, a couple of days after reading about this event, I was traveling to work in an auto when I saw a woman in a burkha carrying her husband (presumably) on her back.

Here’s some food for thought: Dear reader, can you carry your spouse on your back? If yes, can you walk — leave alone run — with your spouse on your back?
