The fact that that society is wiped out is the karma!!! True, no reincarnation in that case - at least not in that particular society! Unfortunately these backward practices are not only part of the Indian culture. It is an integral part of cultures all across the world. Isn't it ironical. If the woman is not normal or is unable to reproduce, she is shunned. If she is normal, she is impure. When will these dickheads ever realize that they lived in that 'impurity' till they were fit to be called human beings in their own right?
