    Read this a long time ago in middle school. It is a short story about an Indian girl, from a wealth family, who is married. The marriage is arranged by her family but her new husband dies. When she becomes a widow is treated monstrously as if she were the one to blame for his death. She runs away to her home and rebels against her father for forcing her into something like this. Was interesting because it shed light upon how the concepts marriage and widows are perceived and dealt with. Female ch Read this a long time ago in middle school.

When she becomes a widow is treated monstrously as if she were the one to blame for his death. She runs away to her home and rebels against her father for forcing her into something like this. Was interesting because it shed light upon how the concepts marriage and widows are perceived and dealt with. Female children are a punishment for the family because the bride's family has to pay a dowry to support the new couple. Secondly widows are ostracized and humiliated publicly. They are abused both physically and verbally. Some widows in India have been known to commit suicide by burning themselves after their husbands' deaths.

    Nice. Even through it's a little boring the intense Indian culture, which brought many revelations, and the adventurous contents (to my liking) kept me reading to the end. Nice.

    I thought that it was very inspirational and touching, because how she struggled so hard to escape through the clutches of her deceased husband's family's torture.
