Jahar was thankful to the doctor because he got well very soon. Well, the doctor and others told him repeatedly to continue his medicine for six months but he was very confident that he had got rid of the monster disease. Jahar was very happy indeed. He was able to work. He felt fit and what else he needed? No way, he would not take the medicine any more. Why should he continue it even after feeling so much better?

But now nobody can stop him. He is fit and he would drink and eat to his heart’s...
“Amina was physically abused by her husband almost every day. The first few months after her marriage were not so difficult. She fell sick and gradually her health deteriorated.

Take me to the hospital.” He hesitantly took her to the hospital. The doctor suggested the tests. After some days the results came and Amina was diagnosed with TB...

She was so thin that any cloth would not have fitted her skeletal form. The neck of her oversized frock slung low revealing the chest bones and upper ribs clearly. Her skinny limbs and tired eyes misrepresented the picture of a child of her age who would have been otherwise chasing butterflies in the fields or in between the lines of tea bushes. How could they...
