God's Children

A friend of mine got married yesterday, didn't bother to go to the wedding. No, not out of laziness or anything... was pretty disgusted with what she did, that’s why.
Loving someone and marrying someone else is something. But, mothering someone's child and marrying someone else is disgusting! What was even more disgusting was the way she went about it as if nothing happened.

Parents who spent most of their waking hours minting money least bothered about their daughter, a large empty house (no I won't call it a home), a jobless sibling less gal with money to spend... A perfect recipe for disaster I guess... Her parents were so engrossed in accumulating wealth that she actually got away with her pregnancy till it was too late. The parents never discovered it at all. One fine afternoon, she called them up... from the nursing home...! To inform them that they'd become Grand Parents!!

What was despicable and horrendous was that the heartless girl refused to even feed the child. She refused to even acknowledge the presence of the crying child... Her story, Boy friend misused her ignorance, used her and then split up when she was 3 months pregnant itself and that guy had since disappeared without leaving a telephone number.

With things like condoms and morning after pills being advertised heavily and being sold over the counter not only did this 'well educated', 'well-to-do' girl manage to get pregnant she went ahead and delivered a girl child too. With the liberal Abortion laws we've in India she could've terminated the pregnancy when it wasn't too late but, she didn't have the courage to face her parents it seems!

The new born infant for no mistake of its own was abandoned at an Orphanage the very same night!! Not only was the latest addition to the Indian Population illegitimate, it was of the female sex too. Imagine what it's like to be an orphaned girl alone in this evil world... Maybe she may get adopted and land up in a better home... BUT THAT'S JUST MAYBE!

Another tale of woe... I've known this quiet little gal for a long time too, from the time guys viewed gals as enemies ;) A traditional joint family up bringing, a bachelor's degree later she was married off in a grand three day ceremony.
Now six months later, pregnant with her first child, she's back at her parents' home...
Apparently her Mother-in-law drove her out after she was diagnosed with Syphilis! Her husband refused to have himself checked… For no fault of hers she was blamed, abused and packed off, shockingly and shamefully her husband is a Doctor.
Medical Science may still be able to save the child without any stigmata... BUT AGAIN THAT'S JUST MAYBE!

A new born human infant is probably the most helpless among all mammals, needing much more time to become Independent. Yet, what other animals don’t, we do! We pass on our sins, abandon them and at times even cold bloodedly murder them! What about the countless number of hapless children who are born flawed or abandoned for no mistake of their own.
If God holds all the strings, why are these children...God's children born into a life of suffering? If there's a God who is watching all this and is making all this happen Maybe he'll punish the sinners...

I am dying to find out how you knew SO MUCH about Girl No. 1.

Man - It's prudes like you who don't attempt to understand issues and sit around passing judgment. Pathetic.

PS - Am sure no body even noticed you hadn't made an appearance at the wedding! Ugh.

how come your blog hardly makes any reference to the boyfriend who abandoned the girl in the first place? is he not equally at fault?
and you started by saying 'a friend of yours'.. if you are really a friend of this girl' why were you not by her side all through out her pregnancy? what did you do to deserve being a friend? nothing i suspect.
sadly, it seems, you have assumed some moral high ground on an issue on which you seem to have no authority or control.

Keep dying, she's happily married and honey mooning some place.
PS: Don't be so sure....

Except the girl no one in her family has actually seen this guy. Same with me.
It's not that the guy is not to blame. The guy went missing just after she got pregnant.
He doesn't even know she has given birth to his son. The family tried to inform him but failed.
ALSO You've made an unqualified comment about me without any knowledge of my personal life... I was doing my internship when she was pregnant. I wasn't in town at all. I studied at Madurai. I noticed she was getting fatter, but her pregnancy was not obvious even one bit. You don't think her parents were so dumb did you?
I was not there beside her during her pregnancy. But I was there when she delivered her baby... In fact I went to the orphanage to give the baby...

Hey prahalathan,

Maybe this is God's way of checking to see if there are any more good humans left in this world. Maybe he's amidst us watching all this and probably doing something about it.

Wierd are his ways, but I trust their veracity and accuracy completely!

well I do understand that the girl might have had million reasons to marry someone else... but I think she cannot and should not site any reason for abandoning the child in an orphanage..well if she knew she was gonna do that from the beginning, she might have as well aborted it when she could.While I do understand that there may have been medical complications in doin that, that should not have been any reason to donate the child off to the orphanage..and about the guy who ditched this girl, well, the less said the better!

I don't fault her for getting married. That wasn't my idea at all. It's just that I pity the kid. Abortion can be safely done with hardly any complications within the first three months. In the next three it's still possible but the risks are more. So the law permits only the most experienced doctors to do that.

I don't think more than 5 people know about this... Her new husband isn't one of them!
