Yesterday, i was able to watch a movie about the widos of India... i was shocked and bothered about the reality of how these women are treated... my heart is in pain just thinking about how they live their lives when their husbands died... I am not an expert in tradition and culture but this kind of centruries old tradition is just cruel... i hope those people fighting for the better treatment of these widows succeed... This sort of reality always make me think that eventhough i live in a poor country where corruption is rampant... i am still lucky that i am not binded by this kind of tradition...

What tradition are you speaking of? I have no idea how the Indian widows live. Could you elaborate?

That sounds twisted and sick. What if there are children to be cared for?
