    Every one in India is facing same fate nowadays particularly during last few months. No one knows about his / her future. Everything is in danger. Care takers of this country have left everyone in miserable condition. Whole country will face problem in case no action is taken soon. Financial position of the country is coming to zero. Politicians are dividing public into groups for their own benefit.

    The couple whether they were married or not, they tried to end their lives along with their 18-months-old son. That man passed away but that woman is fighting for her life leaving that child who seems to be fine in a terrible position. Life has become very hard for many reasons for these laborers and also who are finding it hard to make up for a square meals a day.
