When Barun married, he and his wife moved away to avoid the conflict with his stepmother, despite the cultural norm of staying near his parents. But this didn’t bring the peace he hoped for. Barun and his wife, Parbarti, argued all the time. Their son often fell ill, which only added to Barun’s growing depression. Discouraged and disheartened, Barun found it difficult to work or provide for his family. His wife took up work sewing clothes to maintain the family.
