HAPPY REUNION: Justice M. Jeyapaul greeting the couple who were reunited following the efforts taken by the Mediation Centre at the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court in Madurai on Tuesday.

MADURAI: R. Eswaran (27), an Indian Army soldier deployed in Leh district in Jammu and Kashmir, could hardly have imagined that an anticipatory bail application filed by him in a dowry harassment case filed by his wife, E. Vidya of Theni district, would result in their reunion.

Thanks to Justice M. Jeyapaul, who felt that it was a fit case to be settled through talks, and the Mediation Centre in the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court, which succeeded in bringing the couple back together, the military man and his wife agreed to sink their differences and live together.

At a function organised in the Court premises on Tuesday to mark the reunion, the couple exchanged garlands as they did two years ago and sought the Judge's blessings.

The reunion took place amidst loud applause from a gathering of advocates and the parents of the couple.

Advising them to lead a happy and prosperous life, Justice M. Jeyapaul said many young couples were resorting to litigation even for petty domestic disputes of late. "They fail to understand that life is very valuable and should not be wasted at the doorsteps of the court."

The mediators, K. Samidurai and L.J. Soundararajan, said Vidya had lodged the complaint because she was unhappy with her in-laws and did not want to reside with them in the absence of her husband.

The mediators suggested that she could rent a house near her parents' residence and the husband could pay her a monthly maintenance of Rs.3000. Both the parties agreed to the suggestion. The girl also agreed to withdraw the dowry harassment complaint.
