What choice did I have? I had no place or person to turn to or look up to as my poor family could never afford to take me back as an added burden" Bashiran sobbed. And so day after day, year after year she just bent her head, sealed her lips and kept on working doggedly for her husband and his family.

With time she also became mother of five children. But the attitude of her in laws did not change one bit; in fact it worsened with time. And so one day out of sheer brutality, Bashiran Bibi was pushed into the burning stove just as she was preparing food for the family as per her routine.
