Innocence.fantasty.Ignorance.These three words can best describe the attempt by two German kids,from the city of Hanover- Mika(6 years old) and his sweetheart, Anna-Bell (5 years old) to elope to Africa and get wedded under the beauty of the African sun after watching a nature TV documentary on Africa.
The 'Couple' who had sneaked out of their parents homes on New Year's eve taking along with them Mika's Seven -Year- old sister,Anna-Lena, to be a witness to the wedding,packed bags with summer clothes,toys with provision and walked almost a kilometre to board a tram to Hanover train station before a suspicious Station guard alerted the police.
Anna-Bell told a German Television station in an interview that:'We wanted to get married and so we just thought;'Let's go there.' ''According to Mika ''We wanted to take the train to the Airport,then we wanted to get on a plane and when we arrived we wanted to unpack the summer things and then we wanted to go for a bit of a stroll in the sun.''
The kids who didn't let their parents know about their plans thought they would not be gone for long.
The trio hadn't travelling passports or money.They were pictured at the Hanover Police station beaming smiles that kind of say: 'we don't give a damn about what you think of us.We just love ourselves...Africa,we shall still come visiting...'
Kids!! Where on earth did they know they were they going to in Africa?Just imagine if they had landed in DR Congo, Zimbabwe Or elsewhere in Africa;face-to-face with the typical African kids to whom poverty, hunger,war and death have become usual companions-would they have still admired Africa the way they did that inspired their attempted eloping?

A 44-year-old Australian woman,Rajini Narayan who allegedly doused her husband's genitals with Methylated spirit and set him alight while the poor man was sleeping in December last year,after she suspected that he was having an affair, told a court that :
''I am a jealous wife,his penis should belong to me,I just wanted to burn his penis so it didn't belong to any one else.Its just his penis I wanted to burn...''
Rajini Narayan whose 47-year-old husband,Satish, died on December 27 after suffering burns to 85% of his body, appeared in Adelaide Magistrate court yesterday where she is facing an upgraded charge of murder. This was one anger taken too far.The magistrate has ordered a psychiatric assesment of the woman.A neighbour who visited Rajini in the Adelaide Womens Prison talked about a now sober Rajini who would have ''wanted her husband to live more than anything''.She was reported to have said:''..I didn't mean this to happen.''
