Beltangady: Asked to delay studies by a year, young married woman ends life

Daijiworld Media Network – Beltangady (MS)

Beltangady, Aug 5: Chaithra Adiga (25), wife of Deepak, a resident of Mundruppadi of Dharmasthala village, ended her life on Thursday August 4 at her home.

Chaithra got married in December 2018. She had worked as a teacher in a private school at Ujire for some years. She has one-and-a-half-year-old girl child. She had left the job and was at home.

Chaithra was very much involved in literature and cultural activities. She had completed her MA and wanted to do BEd. However, her husband’s family asked her to join MA next year. It is suspected, that Chaithra, who was distraught by the decision of her husband’s family to defer her BEd by a year, must have killed herself. This was mentioned by the mother of deceased Chaithra in the complaint filed with Dharmasthala police station.

Beltangady tahsildar and Dharmasthala police visited the spot.

    This may not be the reason. But, If it is, she is not a teacher. Sad thing to note is - these days morality, patience is not part of life and a distant thing in curriculum. Going leaving a child is painful and what that little one did ?

    If you ask anybody which is more important for a mother, her baby or career, 100 percent people said baby. If one is interested in career, such woman should delay the birth of the child. May be the family people are not able to take care of the child or simply not want the responsibility. In such a situation, delaying the education is reasonable. I know a bank manager, who has two postgraduate degrees and banking professional qualification who gave up her job to see her child grow.

    Indeed sad! She would have been just 20 when she married .. why are girls pushed into marriage at an early age ! At the age of 14-20 , some girls feel they have found the right person, the love of their life or the parents feel they need to get their responsibilities over with and decide to take hasty decisions of early marriage . But later when they realise they were hardly any match , the result of it is depression, dissatisfaction, broken marriages , affairs! It: sometimes surprising to see girl students in schools falling prey to these social evils marrying or engaging with men that are not educated and atleast 10-15 years older to them! When we think child marriage was only in the past the live examples are very much seen in and around our places too! Sadly, even when advised they show deaf ears towards it! Heartbreaking but true.. May God give her family the strength to bear the loss!

    India got independence but not ladies. If wedding is by proposal all promisses are made and lot if lies are told during wedding. They Never materialise.

    Eva...don't generalise. Don't blame it on men alone. There are lot of cases where females hide things and get married. What about independence of these men??? You don't have to comment on every news especially when you don't know the exact reason. So better to keep quiet instead of giving biased opinion.

    Reshmi you are absolutely right. Many people just write for the sake of writing on this forum without any knowledge of the subject. Half knowledge is always bad.

    Intellectual Cynthia. She has solutions to all issues. It is too early to comment as there could be different reason for suicide. Some people on this forum want to comment on everything without knowing the actual reason. Kaam nathullo achari bhurgyanche koole thasthalo koin...

    Cynthia are you sure this is the reason for suicide??? It's too early to comment. There might be another reason as well which we don't know.

    Nothing can remain unresolved through proper dialogues and suicide is not an option for everything. In this case it seems to be an act done out of rage without thinking about the young child.

    This is very painful to read... She should not have taken such a hasty decision... It is difficult to fathom her mental agony by taunts from the husband's family... But leaving such a small daughter in dire straits is not a right thing to do... Like most cases this too will be buried in the timeline... The one who will suffer most is the young budding flower... Nowadays marriage is not a real necessity... RIP to the departed soul...
