Here’s an excerpt from her winning story “Why?” – An IPS Officer now published in Out of My Box
Sita, as the name suggests was a very talented girl. In her school she stood first in every field. Whether it be education, sports, creativity or anything the first place was always reserved for Sita. Her room was always filled with books, medals and certificates. She was indeed a blessing for her family. But was treated as an unwanted piece. Her grandmother always thought a girl child being born was awful. The doctor said Sita’s mother could give birth only ones, if they tried for second pregnancy both the child and the mother would die. This was the only reason why Sita did not undergo feticide and die.
Sita’s father’s only duty was to get her married to a wealthy gentleman. Sita was married at a very early age when she was 16 to Mr. Vivek Verma.
