Anitha’s might not be the same story as Rajani’s but the struggle is no different. Their fights against the odds, the trauma and the tragedy that ensued are all the same. One might say suicide is not the answer to such troubles. I agree and I am not approving of suicide either but I would not hold it against them either. I had been there and I have known how it feels to stand at the brink of the world and watch your last string of hope being brutally severed. It takes an unfathomable amount of courage keep fighting at such desperate times and not everyone is lucky enough to find it within them. As much as I wish that both Rajani and Anitha had had the strength to go on, I detest the fact that lives had to be sacrificed before voices are heard.
