A Jain couple Sumit and Anamika Rathore from Madhya Pradesh have decided to leave behind three-year-old daughter and property worth Rs 100 crore to become monks.
On September 23, Jain couple will take 'deeksha' from Sudhamargi Jain Acharya Ramlal Maharaja Surat in Gujarat.
Their daughter Ibhya will now have to be arisen by the grandfather Ashok Chandaliya, who is a former Neemuch district president of BJP. They got married four years ago and when their daughter was just eight months old, they hinted at going on a spiritual quest.
In order to do that, they had started living separately and finally announced their decision to the family on August 22. Firstly all the members of the family have tried to dissuade the couple's decision but in the end, they accepted. The family members are well established in politics and business in Madhya Pradesh's Neemuch.
"We had no counter to their religious arguments and relented. One cannot stop anyone when religious calls," they said.
