Nadine and Nisha' forced marriages

They asked Makhesh to arrange for an Indian boy to come from India to be her husband. They would pay for his air ticket and give him a good dowry. In the village, Nadine had left a reputation of being a wild girl and slept with any boy who was interested in her. No village boy would want such a girl to be his wife. 

“I trust you, bro. There is no hurry for you to return the money. But there is one condition. When my son, four years old Raj grows up, you will send for him to New Zealand and marry your daughter Nisha.”
        Bal was happy to oblige, the loan wasn’t much of a dowry to pay for Raj. Besides, it was traditional arrangement and it guaranteed an Indian husband for Nisha.
