Excellent. I really wish most women treated like Lakshmi could retort her way. It would be satisfying to know how Lakshmi managed then onwards. Perhaps a single sentence could tell us how she retained her independence after being thrown out of the house. Life for this strong willed woman could not have been easy. But I want to believe that she set an example for others. She proved that a woman can survive wihout the help of MCP's.
