Woman faced with one of the toughest decisions in her life
Patna, Mar 17 (UNI) Sanjay, a 38-year old man, returned home after 18 long years to find his wife, Laxmi, already married to his younger brother Mannu.
Laxmi will now have to make one of the toughest decisions in her life -- either to accept her first husband who had gone traceless 18 years back or stay with Mannu.
Sanjay had left for offering obesiance to Lord Shankar in Deoghar in 1988 but did not return since then.
Laxmi, a mother of a one-year old daughter waited for her husband but after a lot of persuasion from the family members, she finally agreed to marry Mannu.
Life was happy and easy going for Laxmi, who lives in a nondescript village of Tilothu in Rohtas district, but Holi this time added a new colour to her life, when much to her surprise her first husband reappeared.
Now she has to decide with whom she would like to spend her rest of life--Sanjay or Mannu and Sanjay will have to wait till his wife takes the final decision. He can, however, draw solace from his daughter Soni, now 18, who recognised him immediately and began calling him Papa.
Laxmi also has two children from her second husband.
