In spite of attempts of the village communitya result could not be arrived upona Surubaliïs uncle lodged a police complain & in anticipation of imprisonment, Ranjit the estranged lover of Surubali committed suicide. 
Then the real story began. Both Jogeswari & Surubali have to face tragic times. Because of social stigma & pressure her name could not be registered at the AWW centre. The mother & the children had to face miserable & poor condition.

YCDA then advocated for the cause of the deprived duo & provided food subsidy & health support under the Alternative Forms of Care.
