Saddest headline I’ve seen all year. Not necessarily the saddest story, but the headline is like a punch in the kidney.
In short, an Indian woman, married 10 years but unable to conceive, hanged herself. Her husband found her. He said,
“Lalita had got in the habit of saying she would die if she were not blessed with a son or a daughter.”
What hurts me the most about this story is the absolute certainty in my gut that this is neither the first nor the last time that a woman will choose the ultimate remedy for pain.
