    Very sad.This tragody could have avoided easily by the mother only if she could consult someone or ask help to go to a doctor for a simple check up.Atleast some neighbours too would help her instead of killing herself and innocent children.may the souls of children be with angels and her soul may find rest in peace.Heartfelt sympathy to the family.

    Here medical treatment is very costly. At many cities in Maharashtra and Gujarat there are civil hospitals which provided totally free treatment while here even at Wenlok hospital charges have to be paid and at private hospitals the charges are exorbitant compared to charges at private hospitals in other states.

    Exactly... Many people don't get treatment just because they don't have money..... Ayushman bharath is a good scheme for BPL holders, but every induan should get it, irrespective of religion or economic criteria.

    The mother was 25 and already bore a child 9 years back??

    Just cannot fathom that girls are still getting married off in their teens in this day and age.

    Govt should do more and move towards absolutely free treatment to all in hospitals. Depression is such a dangerous health condition, it can be very dangerous.....
