    PANCHPARA, India (Reuters) - A 25-year-old Indian man has married his 80-year-old grandmother because he wanted to take care of her.



    "I felt she needed extra care as she is old. I can look after her better as a husband than as a grandson," Narayan Biswas told Reuters.



    "As a husband, I am with her all the time, to care for her," said the high school graduate, who farms rice fields and also works as a tutor.



    The grandmother, her back bent with age, says she is "happy" with her young husband whom she married in a traditional Hindu ceremony near Panchpara, a village 100 miles west of Calcutta. Her first husband died more than 30 years ago.



    "I helped bring him up with my own hands and now he looks after me. He is a good husband and ensures I get my meals on time," said Premodas Biswas, a red vermilion streak on her forehead, the mark of a married Hindu woman.



    Local officials say marrying a blood relation is illegal under the Hindu Marriage Act, but they have no plans to take action against the couple.



    "There has been no complaint against them and they are living as husband and wife after a temple ceremony. Their own family has accepted them so we have no plans to act as of now," Dilip Das, a local government official, told Reuters.



    Last June, a nine-year-old Indian girl was married to a dog near Calcutta after a priest told her parents the wedding would ward off evil.

    Apparently the meaning of marriage is quite different over there. I don't pretend to understand it or accept it, but if a girl can "marry" her dog and a boy can "marry" his grandmother, perhaps marriage doesn't quite mean what we traditionally think of it in this country.

    Human remains feared in food


    VANCOUVER -- Human remains may have been in meat processed for human consumption at a pig farm at the centre of the investigation into Vancouver's missing women, B.C.'s provincial health officer confirmed yesterday. "We can't rule out the possibility of cross-contamination," Dr. Perry Kendall said in an interview.

    When asked if cross-contamination meant human remains found their way into meat processed at the infamous farm, Kendall said:

    "It's very disturbing to think about, but there's that possibility of some cross-contamination. But the degree of it or when or how much we really don't know.

    "I think if we could rule it out, we definitely would like to."

    Robert Pickton faces 15 counts of first-degree murder in the disappearance of women from Vancouver's seedy Downtown Eastside.

    Police have said they have found human remains and other DNA samples at the farm Pickton owned with his brother and sister near Port Coquitlam, just east of Vancouver.

    Kendall has asked anyone who may still have frozen pork products from Pickton's farm to return those products to police.

    Please don't generalize to an entire culture. I am sure there are Indians who are reading about the sicko Californian that killed all his children last week and hopefully they're not thinking "apparently the meaning of parenthood is
    quite different over there"...
