Man has little control over the realities of life. So it was with Suresh. His wifes untimely death left him a lonely widower with the two little innocent children to be brought up. It was equally so with Nirmala, who found herself danned as a sinner through she had not committed any sin. When their paths crossed, a light gleamed in the darkness. Suresh desired to offer Nirmala his hand, unaware of her past. He shunned the people who labelled her as a sinner. He believed that his arm was strong enough to ward off all ugly insinuations that painted Nirmala as a wanton woman. But the strength that Suresh possessed could easily have fallen before the mob. And then came a voice. The voice of sanity. The voice of Truth. The voice that took the form of the Baba from the temple. He chided those who dared fling stones at Nirmala, who abused her, debased her. She is no sinner, she is a pure as morning breeze. The child she bears has neither been conceived in love nor in passion. She is guilty of even a momentary lapse. If there be virginity upon this earth, she is the finest example. The mob refused to be pacified and the Baba looked towards God for an answer to Nirmalas condtion. When a child is conceived within the womb shall bear responsibility for such birth? he asked. The question that echoes and re-echoes over all mankind, wherever man suffers from sinful lust and the weaker sex is forced to pay the ptice.
