Nothing can fill the void of a sudden passing of a dear one. But the joy of welcoming a new life into the world is unparalleled with mixed emotions. Going through a wave of emotions, the wife of Deepak, killed by a terrorist in Kashmir gave birth to a baby boy five days after her husband fell to the bullets of Terrorists.
Deepak, 27, a circus worker, was looking after a joint family, sparked protests and a pall of gloom at his native remote village Thial, Majalta, about 60 km from the district headquarters. Deepak was the sole bread-earner in a joint family comprising his pregnant wife, ailing father besides a blind brother, his brother’s wife and two children who are putting up together in a single-storey mud house on a slope in the village. The couple was expecting their first baby in June this year.
