    “a society in transition” says it all.Thanks for writing this.It is the need of hour to talk on this issue.It is happening around us. Earlier it was some one in town who was divorced or simply left alone by husband. But now divorce happens in one’s friend circle.From bring a remote possibility, divorce has advanced into “possibility”. Women will definitely bear brunt of this.

    My heart goes out for the children from split families. One can only imagine how difficult it is for them. There are scary stories I have heard in chat and talk shows. They grow up with a certain mindset of hatred/disbelief in the institution of marriage, expectations and behavior towards their partner and over all their personality is in jeopardy of being damaged.This topic is going to be the one which we will be talking in coming decade when children from broken homes turn in to teenagers and more.


  4. This is so well written and touches on such pertinent truths. Thanks for sharing, Kiran.
