Cinderella, Indian version

Original version:

Once there was a beautiful girl who was tortured by her step mother. When her stepsisters went to the ball, she stayed at home crying at home. A fairy appeared and turned her into a Cinderella's rags into a gorgeous gown and sent her to the ball and asked her to be home before midnight for the spells would break after midnight.

In the ball Cinderella forgot about the midnight thingy until fag end and keeps dancing with the prince, who would have fallen for her. At the stroke of midnight, she realizes that she had quit, she loses her glass shoes and runs away from ball before the spell breaks.

The prince collects the glass shoes and tries it on all young women and it fits in to Cinderella's foot. They get married and live happily forever.

Moral of the story: Beauty is a treasure, but graciousness is priceless.

Indian version:

Once there was a beautiful girl who was tortured by her step mother. When her stepsisters went to the ball, she stayed at home crying at home. A fairy appeared and turned her into a Cinderella's rags into a gorgeous gown and sent her to the ball and asked her to be home before midnight for the spells would break after midnight.

In the ball, while Cinderella is dancing with the prince, Sri Ram Sena enters the ball and beats her up black and blue for dancing. They just dont stop at her, they beat all the other ladies in the ball, including her stepsisters giving an alibi that they're defacing the culture by drinking and dancing in the ball.

Sri Ram Sena is criticized by all the intellectuals and news channels and some ladies start sending them Pink Chaddis.

But the poor Cinderella is bruised so badly that even the fairy couldn't heal her wounds and the prince disagrees to marry her.

Moral of the story: Irrespective of your beauty or graciousness, stay away from pubs/bars in India if you're a lady.
