After reading the story I got Goosebumps. How can a mother do this to her own children? Mothers are supposed to provide love and care. Think of the misery the children would have gone through.

Whatever reasons the mother might have, locking the children up cannot be justified. It’s sheer cruelty. The kids needed love, and instead of nurturing her kids the mother left them to the mercy of the maids. This cannot be justified.

  • It is very difficult to believe that any woman could be so callous to leave behind her siblings in a state of inertia and decamp. The authorities concerned should come down hard on such culprits.
