Chaitra has lost 60% of her body-weight
“When we got married in 2012, and she persuaded the whole family and finished her BCom. She wanted to do Law next – she loved to study and wanted to 'improve herself'. Then she got pregnant and it was proceeding normally. In just one day, in the seventh month, our lives completely changed for the worse,” says Nagesh, her husband.
Even though Chaitra's parents have given up on her, her husband never will
“Chaitra is nothing like how she used to be. She was a fighter who wanted a better life. She is in so much pain she keeps asking me end her suffering and let her die. The Chaitra I remember was stubborn and would never give up. Remembering her that way helps me keep going even when she is pleading with me to leave her,” Nagraj says.
