    Today’s DW news is more about twins. On one side sad to hear about the suicidal death of elderly twins. From Bantwal there is some pleasant and surprising news about 5 pairs of twins in same class of the same school. This is the irony of life.

    OMG this is really condolences to the bereaved family. I just cannot understand WHY there are so many suicide cases of late besides accidents. Family disputes will be there but seek help...most don't want to divulge their problems for various reasons and then in desperation end their lives. Community living is long a ife of pretense is not the way out. AMEN 🙏🏼

    My deepest condolences go out to family during this incredibly difficult time. .one sister is 70 and her husband had gone to work. That means husband must have been of 75 .There was no support from BJP government for these senior citizens who asked vote in the name of hindutva .
