Mother avoided her eyes. Father was uncharacteristically pleasant to Baba Ahmed. Father sold her off at 14 to a 63 year old man. The ‘wedding night’ was sheer horror as he tore into her. Relief came with pregnancy. None of Baba Ahmed’s three wives delivered at the hospital. Labour pains began in the wee hours. When the screams became unbearable, she was driven to the hospital. The doctor declared her baby girl dead. She suffered bad tears & developed fistula. No facilities existed for specialized surgeries. Baba Ahmed divorced her. Father disowned her. A foreign NGO funded her surgery and rehabilitation.
