Pratibha is a simple woman from the village. 5 years ago I met this woman named Pratibha in Bihar, eastern state of India. Pratibha has come out of Bihar jail after serving 7 years. Inadvertently, the punishment for the mistake was 7 years. Being a girl from a very poor family, so Pratibha’s parents got her married early. Seen a lot of poverty even where the marriage took place. Pratibha was not educated but due to poverty she had to work as a laborer. One day a man from his village came and offered her for work for him. He told I’ll pay you more money. The task was to transport some parcels to other places. He Told I’ll pay “₹400 to you for each parcel”. Pratibha was poor, she felt this offer was very good for her. She Started doing this work from next day. She didn’t even know what was inside the parcel.
A few days later, the police arrested Pratibha in a tea stall for delivering parcel. At the time of arrest, 7kg drug was found in Pratibha’s bag which was not known to Pratibha. After 3 months Pratibha’s husband got married again and left her. Pratibha had a son and a daughter. There was no one to help Pratibha of any kind inside the jail. In this way 7 years have passed inside the jail. When Pratibha came out of the jail, her children had grown up. Her daughter was married. The son has come to her who is 14 years old now. Pratibha also got married again to a poor man in her village. Both husband and wife are doing work and happily running their household.
An illiterate poor girl after seeing so much suffering in the world learned to live again. I always salute such people from my heart because talent is courageous.
